For those of us who dream of impossible battles between stars of different sports and eras, here’s an intriguing one: Michael Jordan vs. Muhammad Ali.
OK, it’s really just comedians Key and Peele impersonating the greats in a rap battle, with Jordan’s wagging tongue matched up against Ali’s legendary boasts. But they’re pretty good impressions, and not half-bad rappers (WARNING: Couple of mild profanities):
Even as fakes, their battle is more entertaining than the one Kobe Bryant has with Lionel Messi in a new Turkish Airlines commercial, which features the Lakers legend and the soccer superstar one-upping each other with a round-the-world selfie shootout.
I guess as battles go, neither comes close to the old Jordan-Bird McDonalds commercial.
