Remember that Gatorade commercial where Michael Jordan plays his younger self one on one? The old version of himself schooled his younger counterpart with below the basket moves, as he was pulling off highlight reel dunks from throughout his Bulls career. What’s most incredible about the commercial is that Jamal Crawford is the other Michael Jordan.
It’s rumored that when Michael Jordan came to Jamal Crawford with commercial offer he told him all he has to do is play him one on one, and say a few lines.
