It's difficult to remember a time when retired NBA star Michael Jordan was modest. It's even harder to remember when late night US chat show host David Letterman was funny. Still, there's something pretty enjoyable about this interview from 1986. MJ was shilling for Nike way back then, but Letterman's race joke around the 5.10 mark creates some hilarious tension.

Relive Jordan's amazing 63-point haul versus the Celtics in all its faded-out, VHS glory below.
