Michael Jordan Even Trash-Talked 'Space Jam' Extras During Pickup Games


Michael Jordan is not just the greatest basketball player, he might also be the greatest known trash-talker in the history of the NBA.

Oh sure, he was good with the ball, but he could also get into opponents' heads with mind games, too? We know this much, many of his former adversaries have attested to it, but we never knew he took things this far.

In an interview with Grantland's Jason Concepcion, former basketball player and "Space Jam" extra Keith Gibbs said Jordan trash-talked on set.

Yes, even while shooting a fictional basketball game, His Airness would still be yapping.

Gibbs told Concepcion,

Yeah, the GOAT is just wired differently.
