Michael Jordan beat Kidd-Gilchrist at one-on-one last month
Turns out, Michael Jordan is still pretty good at the basketball thing.
About a month ago Jordan, who turns 50 this weekend, challenged 19-year-old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to a game of one-on-one after practice. Kidd-Gilchrist is the No. 2 pick of the Bobcats, the team Jordan owns.
If I had to bet on that game (and you know Jordan would have taken the action) I would have gone with youth. I would have lost, Kidd-Gilchrist told Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com.
This wasn’t a case of making sure the boss beat you at golf, either.
So MKG, could MJ still survive in the NBA at age 50?
If Jordan could drop 14 in an NBA game now I wouldn’t be shocked. But at 50, he’d need about a week to recover from the exertion.
