Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls said he loaned a North Carolina man, James Bouler, $57,000, but a story in the Charlotte Observer said Bouler won the money in a golf match and owes taxes on it. Bouler, 40, has filed documents in U.S. District Court in Charlotte, N.C., saying Jordan loaned him the money to build a golf driving range in that state.

The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan says he won't quit gambling, but has decided to drastically lower the stakes. Jordan acknowledged during the federal drug and money-laundering trial of James Bouler last week that he lost $57,000 in golf and poker bets to Bouler during a weekend outing in South Carolina 16 months ago. "Winning is great, but when you lose that amount and get all the abuse I got, it ain't worth it any longer," Jordan said during the Bulls' practice Monday.
