Great moment on Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night that you may have missed because you were watching Summer League replays on NBA TV — Michael Jordan made a surprise appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (right here on NBC).
Yes, Jordan looks a little different than his playing days. Almost like comedian Kristen Wiig. But that’s just how Jordan rolls these days. You can tell it’s Jordan because of how he describes “The Shot” to beat those pesky Cleveland Buccaneers.
(Okay, now I just want to see the real MJ sing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” It’s my new mission in life.)
Isn’t hipster James Harden hanging on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots the most James Harden thing he could do after the Olympics? He and Kevin Durant swung by the show Monday and didn’t look too hungover.
Make sure to watch the second video, it has great stuff. Like Jimmy Fallon bringing up the Dwight Howard to the Lakers trade and Harden shrugging and saying “good for them.” Then they go all Oprah on the crowd.
But mostly, those gold medals are sweet.
I’ll admit it, we bought my toddler daughter one of those mini basketball hoops and I’ve spent time trying to shoot rocks, charcoal briquettes, golf balls and anything else I can get my hands on through it.
Consider this the adult version of that — Jimmy Fallon and Dwight Howard trying to shoot Shamrock Shakes through a basketball hoop on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Dwight Howard is a great sport about this. Try doing this with Kobe and he’d not only be desperately trying to beat Fallon but also to humiliate him.
