Blasphemy! In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Magic Johnson called into question Prince's basketball playing abilities, previously lionized in "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories" on Chappelle's Show.

"He talked so much trash! He thought he had a real jump shot! And I had to remember that this was Prince I was playing against so I had to back off," recalled Magic with obvious affection, before launching into a surreal story about Prince demanding private late-night showings at the Magic Johnson Theaters. (Video below.)  

One can't help but wonder if, buried deep in the Prince vaults, there is a funk-punk diss-track dissecting Magic Johnson's game-playing abilities.
