New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter has already completed his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after being nominated by several people, but Jeter nominated NBA legend Michael Jordan before getting the ice water dumped over his head.

Jordan accepted the challenge and nominated his former coach, Phil Jackson, along with some members of the 1992 Dream Team.

Here is Jordan completing the challenge, per ESPN:

It'll be interesting to see the Zen Master take part in the challenge as it continues to sweep the nation.

For those who are skeptical of the Ice Bucket Challenge, it is helping raise far more money than the ALS foundation was able to bring in last year. By some estimates, the foundation has received over $30 million in donations, while at this point last year it was under $2 million.

As ridiculous as it is, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge seems to be helping to not only raise awareness, but money as well.
