Watch Michael Jordan square off against Charlie, Martin Sheen in 1987

Monday August 10th, 2015

Back in 1987 Michael Jordan had already begun his domination of the NBA, and the rising star agreed to an event in which he would take on one of Hollywood’s most famous acting families, the Sheens, on the hardwood.

Martin and Charlie faced off against Jordan in a three-part battle, including a free throw competition, a game of horse and a two-on-one contest, with Jordan spotting the actors five points and being limited to one shot per possession. 

After Jordan took the horse contest and lost the free throw shooting challenge, the handicaps proved insurmountable for the Bulls superstar and the Sheens walked away with a 10–5 victory in the final leg, and the ability to say they beat the greatest in basketball.​
