Caleb Williams accidentally snubbed Michael Jordan during post-Draft interview

The 2024 NFL Draft has had many storylines dominate the weekend. But, the Chicago Bears should still be the talk of the draft.

After all, they're the team that gets to call Caleb Williams their own.

The no. 1 overall pick out of USC comes to Chicago with expectations and anticipation unlike any other quarterback has previously brought. And, he comes alongside fellow rookie and first-round pick, wide receiver Rome Odunze.

The two of these guys seemed to have a good relationship prior to the draft, being spotted with one another beforehand. And now, they get to play together.

After the first round was over, NFL Network's Stacey Dales asked Williams what he said to Odunze after the two found out they were going to be playing together.

"When I finally was able to see him after he was picked, I dapped him up and said congrats, but I also said, it's like D-Wade and LeBron when they were with the Heat," Williams replied.

Caleb Williams may have used the wrong NBA comparison, but he got one thing right

The opportunity for Williams to use a Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen comparison was there for the taking, but the rookie quarterback missed it. He is playing in Chicago, after all.

Come on, man. You had the chance, and missed.

Oh, well. Dales went on to ask Williams what kind of product we would be seeing out of the Bears offense in 2024, and the no. 1 overall pick didn't disappoint.

"Efficient, explosive and 11 of us out there having fun," Williams replied.

An efficient and explosive offense? In Chicago? Truly, what kind of world are we living in? The excitement and anticipation Williams is bringing knows no bounds.

Don't forget about Odunze, though.

"We're starting our own duo here. I'm excited for it," Odunze told Dales.

There's no doubt about it. This Bears offense certainly looks like it's going to be explosive and efficient, at least on paper.

Bears fans have been excited about teams before, but this does feel a bit different. The expectations are already on another level, and it's only April. Between Williams, Odunze and the rest of the Bears' offensive weapons, this group has an opportunity to produce unlike any group we've ever seen in over 100 years of football in Chicago.
