Will Smith on His Competitive Friend Michael Jordan


  • Will Smithโ€™s a scrub.

  • Miss u MJ. Miss watching mj play.

  • man...black people age so well.

  • Michael Jordan is competitive, you don't say.

  • Lol! Dude. How's subscribing to your channel going to finally make me happy? Do you give out free bitcoin?

  • The fact that this is so scripted and you all buy it as real scares me

  • so people with severe mental disorders can be called GOAT. ok I get it now.

  • I was a bartender in Chicago, at a nightclub MJ frequented a few times. MJ was polite, courteous, and kind. He NEVER spoke-down to ANYONE, not my bar-backs, other customers, security, his friends, NOBODY. BUT, to Will's point, he did NOT like paying for "stuff." But, let me be clear, HE didn't ORDER anything but a few Corona's topped off with 151 Rum, OR just water if he was training. His CREW (The Ruff Rider motorcycle club, or other friends) on the other-hand, would run up a tab for 1000$-3000$ every-time though, and he did NOT intend to pay for them. At the time, when I was BUSTING MY ASS to serve 70 people drinks, by myself, I thought he was "stingy," but now I totally get it. He should't have to pay for half the bar to drink...Doesn't matter HOW rich he is... Meanwhile, other guys like Antoine Walker would leave me a thousand-dollar tip, on a thousand dollar tab.

    • +Whiskey No doubt. But, if Walker could blow 100 million in 10-12 years, it might be possible for MJ to blow 2 billion if he isn't careful. Especially when you take his gambling problem into consideration.

    • Walker made 110 million in the NBA and recently claimed bankruptcy. MJ is a billionaire.

  • This was so fake.

  • He ain't good at that๐Ÿ˜† (Michael Jordan paying the check)

  • Will Smith's laugh always gets me lmao

  • Will Smith subliminal told Jimmy Kimmel to ask him who goes to pick up the check by subliminally saying at 1:46, "I considered myself competitive until I spent time with them.." the trigger word was "spent" , later at 1:54 he looked him straight into his eyes while uttering the words, "another command" giving him another command.

  • Are you a vampire, Mr. Smith?

  • Wtf mike haha. Always competes at everything hahaha

  • Will still the same man .. this is crazy.. not ageing at all

  • Will Smith does a great Jay Pharaoh impression

  • If you don't know how competitive MJ was, check out his HOF enshrinement speech.

  • still waiting for jordan to guest in KIMMEL!!

  • That's the type of picture you get framed and put behind security glass protected by an alarm system. Mike and Kid 'n Play in the same photo? Priceless.

  • 1988 Bulls > All.

  • Mike doesnt need to pay , his greatness works like law of attraction.

  • Love you man you dope

  • Woods or Tony the... lmmfao!!!!

  • It just to show, being with someone who's competitive all the time gets tiring at times.

  • He is not good at that.. Hahahhaaa

  • Will Smith is the man

  • will smith = legend


  • this is no joke, apparently MJ is notoriously cheap, that being said, he wastes millions of dollars gambling.

  • Tiger can beat Mike in golf

  • The most 90's photo ever lol

  • Competitive at taking a walk tho lol

  • I was genuinely laughing throughout this interview. They're great!

  • 25 years ago? it looks like it was taken yesterday.. Will does not age tf

  • Look at kid looking like an albino with black hair

  • Nah. I really think MJ paid these dudes to big up how competitive he was. He must have

  • 0:06 the absolute epitome of the 90's

  • Will Smith laugh though

  • That laughter, by far the best celebrity laughs for me :)

  • check this out outus-tv.org/tv/video-rJd3keMPlsY.html Pass it on!

  • 2:14 โ€œheโ€™s not good at that ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Mi faborito actor

  • will smith with the fake smiles and laughs

  • Will Smith is such a cool dude...

  • Something seems to be off about Will, his speech pattern seems unnatural. I like Will but....something...?

  • This dude looks 35 at most.

  • is it so hard for jimmy to try to be funny?

  • Will Smith is basically just his character from Shark Tale in real life.

  • Had a dream bout jordan. No homo.

  • Dat framerate though

  • I love how he now definitely looks like the adult version he pretended to be in one of the early Fresh Prince episodes. He pretended to be Ashley's father. He was wearing identically clothing; all he needs is the glasses. Someone please agree with me lmao

  • Did u catch the joke at 1:31 ? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Jordan doesn't tip. How you think he's gonna pay the check?

  • I really would like to see Will again in his comedy element

  • Mike dont like playing games he cant win. And not good at paying bills. Haha

  • Should've asked if they played a one on one

  • he keeps interrupting him which disrupts the flow he's trying to tell a story

  • Charles Oakley about to pull up on Will

  • That's me hero MJ, haha!

  • Born in Brooklyn, NY, Jimmy Kimmel was raised with great parents who taught him simple down-to-earth values. His interviews with rich celebrities always are relatable to the everyday joe.

  • Ive read multiple stories of Jordan being ultra cheap. Dont know how true they are

  • He ainโ€™t good at that

  • Will is so clearly uncomfortable in this interview. The best entertainers use comedy to hide behind.

  • dismiss ice grip admit deck warn anticipate opponent healthy historical.

  • Chimpin out

  • People notice bad plastic surgery, they don't notice good plastic surgery, they just think that person doesn't age.....

    • inefekt69 you get what you pay for

  • Will Smith dont age lol

  • Mike LARRY!

  • Let me refreshing your memory Will that sex act u did with that white man in that movie..... NASTY

  • From what I gathered , hearing celebs speak on Michael Jordan's social life , MJ seems to be a pretty stereotypical rich arrogant arsewipe that despises other men of colour that's lower down on the food chain , it's sad tho , smh . . . .

    • Jarod Moodley what do u expect from the most competitive man in the world?? That's why he's the goat.

  • very good

  • Will Smith talking about Michael is Epic

  • Will Smith is a homosexual

  • Will smith looks like he's 35...๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I really would love seeing him host his own show.

  • Will looks high..

  • will barely ages

  • Hey, Will Smith.....no Oscar yet? What about you wife...did she win one yet?

  • Happy new year joyful days

  • Will irl is corny asf. Wish he could be like he was in prince.

  • I heard this Jimmy guy was funny... to who? Another awkward moron hosting some bullshit that other morons watch?

  • does no one else hear at the end when jimmy kimmel clearly slates will about him never having his wallet? following the rumors that will never pays cause he 'forgot his wallet' ? I've scrolled comments for like 10 mins lol no one seems to have clocked. no hate just had me in stitches for a few mins.

  • So 25 years ago he looked EXACTLY THE SAME
