Damon Wayans aka the funniest Wayan that’s not involved in the not always funny “Scary Movie” franchise, has a lot of pull because Jordan doesn’t make many cameos for less than the price of the entire cast of a TV sitcom. Actually it’s because Wayans and MJ are close friends and ex neighbors. He appeared on an episode of the show ‘My Wife and the Kids,” which ran from 2001-2007, where Major Payne like Damon Wayans plays Jordan one on one at the Michael Jordan Senior Flight School.
Shaq’s appearance on the show, pre social media phenomenon, seemed a little less scripted and just an excuse for Shaq to do his normal ad lib routine he pulls in his viral videos now.
LeBron didn’t even have a speaking part in his cameo. The episode is about Wayan’s character trying to escape the flu from a sick household so he can see the Knicks/Cavs game. He ends up going and shakes LeBron’s hand after sneezing in it which causes LeBron to get sick and miss the game. Ironically, three days before the episode aired, the Cavs played the Knicks at MSG. Although this wasn’t James’ first game against the Knicks it was his first game at MSG.
