Michael Jordan, owner of the Charlotte Bobcats and star of TV commercials, sat down with the Observer for an hour Wednesday.
We talked about basketball. And Charlie Sheen.
It's evident from watching the Hanes commercial Jordan filmed with Charlie Sheen that there is a bond between the stars. It wasn't just acting. Nobody acts that well. There was a connection. Their work, their dialogue, the way Jordan and Sheen played off each other was, I believe, moving.
So, Michael, I asked. Were you surprised by Charlie's outbursts and have you reached out to him?
"I, I, I mean I don't even know how to respond to that one," Jordan says. "I've had a lot of other things on my mind -- winning. So my relationship with Charlie is not one where we communicate that way. I did a commercial with him two years ago, three years ago."
But after filming, weren't there beers, parties, Hollywood hanging out?
"I haven't spent any time with Charlie," Jordan says laughing. "Don't put me there."
