MICHAEL JORDAN shows up two hours late on a four hour shoot day. He is wearing some horrible Afrocentric outfit.
What the hell is that?
That’s my new line.
You can’t wear that.
Michael turns to the agency who are just happy to see him.
What do you guys think.?
It looks great. Love it. Thumbs up, etc.
You guys are cowards.
Silence. We shoot with the crappy wardrobe but I’ve regretted it to this day. Cowardice in the face of the enemy.
I ask MJ:
Are you gonna give me the time? (his late time)
Shitty wardrobe, a quarter of my shooting time gone, and Larry Bird has a bad back. I give Bird the line, “No dunking.” From my first ‘encounter’ with MJ.
