In 1992 Michael Jordan Taught Michael Jackson How To Play Basketball In Return For Dance Lesson
In 1992, for the music video for ‘Jam’ the world’s two biggest stars came together, as Michael Jordan, the biggest athlete on the planet, collaborated with the biggest musical artist, Michael Jackson.
It was MJ and MJ. While Michael Jordan taught Michael Jackson how to play basketball, he received a dance lesson by Jackson in return, even though Jordan was hesitant at first:
“First I said, ‘I don’t know if I want to do this, because this guy’s going to try to get me out there to dance, and that’s going to be really embarrassing.’ But then I said: ‘Well, shoot, it’s Michael Jackson. When would you ever get an opportunity to get to know him socially for a little bit, and yet at the same time, get to do his video?’ So I changed my mind and went on and did it.”
