Hard to believe almost three full years have passed since we lost the great Kenny Rogers.

Following that terrible news, 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.

You are missed, Kenny.

Rogers had some fun throwing shade at MJ back in 2019.

The gambler.

Remember When Chris Stapleton Performed “The Gambler” At The Kenny Rogers Tribute Concert?

Back in 2017, fans packed Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebrationan all-star tribute concert for the great Kenny Rogers.

The evening featured performances from Little Big Town, Reba, Jamey Johnson, and of course Dolly Parton along with Kenny himself, but it was Chris Stapleton that was called upon to perform Rogers’ iconic hit, “The Gambler.”

And needless to say, he CRUSHED it.

RIP Kenny.

You were, you are, and you’ll always be… a country music legend.
