Default Michael Jordan beats MKG in a game of 1 on 1

"Michael Kidd-Gilchrist didn’t think he would lose. Not in 1-on-1. Not to a 50-year-old guy.

He was wrong.

But hey, at least that 50-year-old guy was His Airness, Michael Jordan.

Kidd-Gilchrist, 19, said the 1-on-1 game between he and Jordan, who is the majority owner of the Bobcats, the team for which Kidd-Gilchrist plays, happened about a month ago after a practice.

“He did play me 1-on-1 one time,” Kidd-Gilchrist said on Friday morning before playing on Team Shaq in the Rising Stars Challenge Friday night. “And it was hard for me … I lost. I lost to a 50-year-old guy. That’s my boss, though. He’s the best player to play the game.”

But Kidd-Gilchrist didn’t lose to a 50-year-old. He lost to a 49-year-old. Jordan doesn’t turn 50 until Sunday.

"Yeah. Of course," he said when asked if he thought he was going to beat Jordan. "I don’t think I’m gonna lose. I mean, he is 50."

Did Kidd-Gilchrist even really lose, though. Or did he let his boss beat him?

“No,” he said emphatically. “No. I didn’t allow him to beat me. Because that’s my boss? Nah.”


Jordan recently talked about trying to get back down to his playing weight with Wright Thompson for an in-depth ESPN story. The story, along with the well-known competitive nature of Jordan, has sparked some debate and rumors about a possible comeback for Jordan, who is already in the Hall of Fame.

“That wouldn’t shock me at all,” Kidd-Gilchrist said about a possible Jordan comeback. “He still has it. He does.”

You don't have to run much playing 1 on 1. I would bet Jordan could beat most starting wings 1 on 1.

But if Jordan played half court he would have a tougher time. Full court, forget it.

They mentioned in the article how sore he was after playing 1-1. He probably wouldn't be able to walk for days if they went full court.

Not difficult to envision. Nikka was dropping 20ppg at 40, and had 50 point game.

He probably beat him using his old man mid range shot. Every old man has it

Was going to post in that other thread, but decided against it. Don't want to cause an uproar.

I'll say it here, though... As someone who lived through the Jordan years and rooted against him thoroughly every time he took the floor....

No one is even close in today's game. No one. Unless you lived through it, you don't understand. And, I have little doubt that he would be probably average or maybe a little above average if he came back at 49.
