“Ben Said You’re Not 6’6” – Matt Damon Shares an Incredible Story About Michael Jordan

When Michael Jordan was at his peak in the 1990s, he was very popular, and everyone adored him. Even after he retired, other famous people try their hardest to meet him and love telling stories about their time with him.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are really famous actors who have been in many of the biggest movies over the past twenty years. They worked together on a movie called ‘Air‘ which is about Nike signing Michael Jordan. They both shared stories about their experiences with Michael Jordan.

“I met him a couple of times at some kind of celebrity events in Las Vegas. Got to spend a little bit of time, you know, awestruck by the guy like everyone else,” Ben Affleck said.

“I met him at the golf course and then we saw him once in Las Vegas and that was a really fun interaction where Ben stood next to him and stood as tall as he could. And he looked at Jordan, who wasn’t that much taller than him and Ben said, ‘You’re not 6’6″.’  Because he’s famously listed at 6’6″. And Jordan goes, ‘Yes, I am.’ And Ben goes, ‘Eh, maybe 6’4″ and a half.’ And Jordan without missing a beat goes, ‘Which made what I did all the more incredible,’” Matt Damon then said.

“He had a point,” Ben Affleck added.

Michael Jordan would say something like this when someone tries to talk badly about him and his height. He always liked to compete, not just in basketball. He knows he was and still is great.

Jordan had a great interaction with Leonardo DiCaprio

Michael Jordan has been famous for a very long time, so he has probably met all the really famous Hollywood stars by now. But one of the nicest encounters he had was with Leonardo DiCaprio when DiCaprio had just become famous. They met after a Chicago Bulls victory.

“I was watching Man With The Iron Face today, no, Iron Mask, and now he’s here! You know what I told the guys when we stuck our hands in? All for one and one for all. I did, I’m not even kidding,” Jordan said.

“Congratulations. You did some beautiful stuff just now, man. That was poetic,” DiCaprio replied.

Many NBA fans, even those who have never seen Michael Jordan play, would give anything to meet him. Speaking with Jordan would be the ultimate honor for anyone interested in basketball.
