Jordan was asked by Melvin if he would amend the list of players he said would be unbeatable in a pickup game in a promotion for NBA 2K14 back in 2013. At the time, Jordan picked Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, and James Worthy. The NBA legend said that he wouldn't change the lineup even though six years had passed since he made the list. "When I'm going in the trenches, I played against and with all these guys. I'm going with who I know," Jordan said.
Melvin replied: "So, Steph Curry shouldn't be offended when he watches this."
Magic Johnson diagreed with Jordan's take, and joked that he was just trying to protect himself. Johnson was famously fined for tampering after he publicly praised Giannis Antetokounmpo.
