Kenny Rogers Pump Fakes Michael Jordan, Drains Jumper In ’88 Pickup Game

We lost a great one in Kenny Rogers this past weekend.

After the tragic news was released, the internet unearthed a gem from back in 1988 involving Kenny and none other than Michael Jordan. Back in the day, Rogers put on the Kenny Rogers Classic Weekend in Georgia which featured a pickup basketball game with celebs and NBA superstars.

At about the :08 second mark, Kenny gives MJ a nice pump fake, and drains a jumper. Smooth as silk.

The rest of the game is Jordan mauling everyone as you’d expect.
