During a recent interview with ‘Sway Calloway on SiriusXM Shade 45,’ Detroit-based rapper Eminem has exposed an embarrassing phone conversation with Chicago Bulls legend, Michael Jordan, and revealed how he challenged him in a basketball matchup.
While talking about Michael Jordan’s documentary, ‘The Last Dance,’ Slim Shady recalled a phone call with the ‘G.O.A.T’ and said Jordan that he could dunk on the former basketballer.
However, Eminem thought that it was cricket and said that Jordan was surprised and confused against his dunking challenge.
Here’s what Eminem stated:
“I talked with him on the phone one time. We were talking, and everything was cool—and he’s super cool—and everything was good. Until we got the end of the phone call, and I said, ‘Yo, man, when are you gonna come to Detroit so I can dunk on you?’
And it was crickets… And I remember getting off the phone going, ‘Oh my god I think I might have just blown it.’”
“To me, in my head, it was a total joke, right? It’s so ridiculous for me to think I could dunk on Jordan.
It was one of those things in my head that was so ridiculous, he has to know I’m joking. But when I got off the phone, I remember thinking, ‘I don’t think he knew I was joking.’ Because he’s very—I mean, watching this documentary—he’s very competitive.”
