Denny Hamlin shares details on his life outside of racing, which includes his basketball obsession and friendship with Michael Jordan.
“Growing up I was also a big Michael Jordan fan,” said Hamlin, who has previously torn the ACL in both his left and right knee while playing basketball himself. “Loved his intensity and what he did on the court in the most pressure situations. It’s cool that I’m able to be friends with him now, it’s awesome. My life has taken a huge turn in the last 15 years that it’s pretty surreal.”
