Spike Lee tells Michael Jordan-Charles Barkley-Magic Johnson poker story (vid)

If you have never heard him mention it, Spike Lee is good friends with Michael Jordan.

During a sit-down with Sports Illustrated, the director told a story about a poker game that involved MJ, Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley during an eight-hour card-playing, smack-talking session in a hotel room during the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, which of course was the inaugural (and truly only) “Dream Team” Summer Games.

Said Lee, “I wish I could’ve had a camera in there.” Indeed.
