David Spade: "Michael Jordan was signing so many autographs that there was a line outside of his dressing room slowing down rehearsal. The show had to stop it. It was the first time they had to do that... He was the SNL host who said, 'just tell me what to do, show me what to do, I'll do my best'. Everyone coming from sports is out of their element and they like the feedback. Everyone was helping him along. We were doing this Washington Generals sketch where we didn't want him on our team. And even though he was so good, we fired him from the team. He said 'You're all getting rid of me??' And looked at me said, 'Even you pee-wee???' I turned my head down in shame."
