Michael Jordan on The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show in 1998

In the late 90s everybody and I mean everybody thought they could have the next Arsenio Hall show.  They all failed and none failed worse than Magic Johnson’s late night talk show.  Post “In Living Color” and pre directing parody films like Scary Movie,  underrated comic legend Keenen Ivory Wayans landed on late night and interviewed one of his brothers (Damon) best friends – Michael Jordan.

Jordan, thankfully not wearing his trademark jeans, talked about his NBA friendships, his kids playing sports and having a future “pot belly.”  Funny thing is, the GOAT does now have a pot belly, still is friends with Barkley and his son would go on to play college ball.
