MJ giving number 45 to his racecar was a no brainer after @BradyManek played a year in Chapel Hill! 🤝 https://t.co/AczFe7brgH

You literally have the 23 car…nobody sees Carolina Blue and associates it with 45🤨 and an argyle pattern would really make this so much better https://t.co/gihhUEzTgw

Unlike people in the replies and qts, I like this scheme. I know I’m not an UNC fan, but this scheme brings a lot of love to the MJ’s old college team and to North Carolina. 10/10 🔥 https://t.co/fO4nu5RoM6
