Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan hang out in Monte Carlo

When you’re Magic Johnson, simply going out to dinner for a wedding anniversary isn’t enough.

The Hall of Fame basketball player vacationed in Monte Carlo with his wife Cookie Monday for their wedding anniversary. While there, the couple was joined by another legendary basketball player, Michael Jordan.

Thank you to Michael Jordan and his beautiful wife Yvette for having dinner with us to celebrate our anniversary in Monte Carlo!

The notoriously salty Jordan buddied up to Johnson all night. The Lakers legend even paid Jordan the ultimate basketball compliment, calling him the “greatest basketball player that’s ever played.”

I had so much fun hanging out with my Dream Team teammate and the greatest basketball player that’s ever played, Michael Jordan!
