Invite him over for a poker game, then clean him out.

I'd completely ignore him. If this is a one on one meeting. Just completely act like he's some normal schmuck I met on the street and engage in small talk like I have no idea who he is. I bet he'd get pretty unnerved.

I met him at a casino a couple years back. I was at a crap table when he and some of his friends came in unannounced to play. Normally high rollers like him would reserve a table in advance, but in this case I guess he was in the area or something and just popped up. The pit bosses tried to drive us away from the table because MJ was there, but Mike told them it was ok for us to stay. There were about 4 people at the table before he came. So he played with us for about 40 minutes and even gave us $300 in chips. Good Shyt.

Even in gambling, he still had that competitiveness about him. I remember when it was my turn to shoot, my point was a 10 (4 and 10 are the most difficult points to make), and he kept yelling: "come on ten, come on ten" over and over like it was his life savings on the line or something. I eventually made the 10 after about 10 or so tries and the table erupted. I felt like John Paxson when he made that shot in the '93 finals.

If the situation presented itself where I could speak to him I would. But it would me more in terms of a joke, something to make him chuckle but leave an impression. Other then that? Nothing. I met Magic Johnson and Cookie. I told him he was one of the game best passers but here is one pass you kept to yourself! Imypling Cookie. They both laughed, she told me that was cute. Then they asked where I was from and basic stuff. 5min convo with Magic & his fine wife? It was cool. I would probably clown MJ about something he wasnt good at. A smart remark but humor behind it to generate a convo. Nothing forced, just natural.

I was standing behind Thomas "Hitman" Hearns at the MGM Grand in Vegas after a Tyson fight. And I said something like "What's up Sugar Ray". He was like "What the hell" and laughed that ***** off. You had to be there. I met about 100 celebrities that night.

I once met Gandhi. We were at a Vegas casino. He had a woman on each arm. We talked for about 10 minutes, then went to a decadent dinner. Then we went to a wild sex party at his pad. He's totally misrepresented in your history books. He was a really chill guy. Great with the ladies. "so what do you do?" "I free third world countries from their colonial oppressors." gets em every time. If I'm lyin, I'm dyin.

That is funny. I definately would have my limits to say that too. Mike Tyson being one. Could you imagine the reaction you would have got (probably physical) if you said something similar to him? Probalby make sportscenter tho, sue, get paid and more good times at an event with celebs. Cant beat that. Surprised you were that close to interact with Tommy at a Tyson fight in vegas.

Your attempt at humor fell short.
