During the premiere of "The Last Dance," a vignette starring Chicago's own Common was aired and he told a hilarious story.

"I was a ball boy for the Chicago Bulls," Common said. "Well this kid, he asked me if I could get Michael Jordan's autograph for him. I said, 'Yeah, I can do it for $5.' And he was like 'okay.'

"So I got the $5 and I went down to the locker room and I said, 'Hey Mike, do you think you can sign this autograph for me?' He goes, 'You got it' just kind of joking around, 'you sign it.'

"So I signed it and took it up to the kid. He looked and saw that Michael was spelled wrong. I spelled Michael wrong. So I had to give the $5 back."

It's such a Chicago thing that Common was a  ball boy for the Bulls when he was a kid. Fast forward decades, and Common is opening the 2020 NBA All-Star Game with a poem to the mecca of basketball, Chicago.
