Actor Eddie Murphy recalled a pickup basketball game with music icon Prince on The Tonight Show this week. Speaking with host Jimmy Fallon, Murphy detailed the infamous basketball matchup in which Prince and his crew challenged the comedian and his friends to a game.
Eddie, his brother Charlie and their entourage took to the blacktop against Prince and his group. Having just come from a music video shoot, Prince’s team were rocking outrageous outfits. Just returning from the cub, Eddie Murphy and his brother, Charlie, were decked out in leather jackets, fancy shoes and gold chains.
“It’s going to be shirts against blouses”, Murphy recalled his brother saying before the tipoff.
Unable to definitively say the result of the game, the Hollywood star told Kimmel he believed his team lost – supposedly due to their best player wearing shoes a few sizes too small.
Eddie Murphy’s latest movie Coming 2 America released on Amazon earlier this week.
