When Phil Jackson talks about the things that made Michael Jordan so exceptional, the size of his hands is one of the things that comes up early. Jordan’s ability to control the ball better because of those freakish hands was something that gave him an edge even other great players (such as Kobe Bryant) didn’t have.

But can Michael Jordan palm a pumpkin? Yes, it turns out.

Jimmy Kimmel put all of this to the test on his show. Kimmel has been breaking out the NBA bits lately because he comes on not long after the NBA Finals games end on the East Coast.
