Jordan Admits to Being Stupid with Gambling

In a “60 Minutes'' interview to be broadcast Sunday, Michael Jordan admits being ``stupid'' in his gambling, but he never jeopardized his livelihood or his family.

Jordan said his gambling is related to his fierce competitiveness. But he realized when he stepped over the line.

``Yeah, I've gotten myself into (gambling) situations where I would not walk away and I've pushed the envelope,'' Jordan said in the interview.

``It's very embarrassing ... one of the things you totally regret. So you look at yourself in the mirror and say, 'I was stupid.'
