Kenny Rogers schools Michael Jordan
Remember when Kenny Rogers put a pump-fake on Michael Jordan, then swished a sweet jumper?
Really, it happened. It was 25 years ago in the country star's charity classic, but His Airness bit on the move and turned into The Gambler, and Rogers, who was 50 at the time, made him pay, sinking the shot like a pro. Just watch:
Why did it take 21 years for the video, which has a whopping 17 likes (all by Bryon Russell, we assume), to come to YouTube, and another four years for it to come to our attention?
What's next, long-lost footage of Lucille Ball dunking on Bill Russell?
The best part is that in a longer highlight clip from the game, which also featured Dominque Wilkins, you get to see MJ's competitive side take over after being put in the popcorn machine: On a drive by Rogers, Jordan swats his layup into the seats, then blows by him for the winning layup. Just watch:
Take that, Kenny. You shoulda known when to fold 'em.
