Which Common Objects Can Michael Jordan Palm? Jimmy Kimmel Investigates

By 06.11.14


Michael Jordan’s basketball-palming ability served him well during his Hall of Fame career. One wonders, though, how much greater The Greatest would have been if he’d been blessed with Kawhi Leonard’s hands. But that question is for another time.

Jimmy Kimmel put MJ’s palming to the test last night, asking him to cup various objects. (That sounds a little dirty).

Thanks to this brave bit of science, we now know Jordan can palm a honeydew melon, but not a bowling ball. Rest assured: this vital information will be used for all sorts of useful purposes.

A similar game with the aforementioned Leonard would be kind of anticlimactic because, yes, he can palm everything.

About Kyle Koster... Whenever you read a blog and think, "this is something that didn't need to be on the internet," you can bet I am responsible for it. I left a promising career in actual journalism to make GIFS and watch sports. No regrets. Oh yeah, I talked to Justin Bieber once and it was OK. Send tips/tell me I suck: or
