‘SNL’: Keegan-Michael Key Takes On Michael Jordan In ‘The Last Dance’ Spoof
Just as sports fans of The Last Dance were moving on, Saturday Night Live gave them never-before-seen footage with first-time host Keegan-Michael Key as the basketball G.O.A.T.
Key took Michael Jordan's competitive spirit to a new level. The all-star athlete took part in a coin toss bet with bodyguard John Michael Wozniak, played by Heidi Gardner. All things seem harmless until Keys MJ loses the first round.

"And I took that personally," Key said, restoring the popular Internet meme that surfaced after the documentaries premiered.
However, it wouldn't be The Last Dance without appearances from fellow NBA stars Dennis Rodman and Charles Barkley, portrayed by Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson. The coin tosses continued and Wozniak lost even more possessions to Michael Jordan.
"The thing about Mikey is that he didn't just want to hit you, he wanted to dominate you," said Redd's Dennis Rodman. "He wanted to embarrass you."
At this point, Gardner's Wozniak has lost his pants and it appears to be his wife's trust. But more is on the table when Keys looks at MJ Wozniak's signature hairstyle.
"If you don't play to win, why play?" Key says.
The Dolemit is my name and Shmigadoon! The actor made his Saturday Night Live hosting debut with the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress and singer Olivia Rodrigo, who was the guest musician. He joins first-time SNL season 46 host Regina King, Issa Rae, Daniel Kaluuya and Carey Mulligan. The Queen's Gambit star Anya-Taylor Joy will take the reins next week while Lil Nas X brings his music to Studio 8H.
