Behind-the-Scenes Footage

It's not easy being green. Here you've got footage taken from additional cameras on the set (and called "b-roll" by those in the biz) in which Michael Jordan plays against several men who are both shorter than he and less talented at the sport of basketball. The little green men will later be digitally removed and replaced with cartoons. Neat stuff, huh.
