Michael Jordan’s name is always thrown into the great NBA debates: Is Kobe better than MJ? Is LeBron better than MJ?
Well, the G.O.A.T. thinks there is someone he could take on: the Charlotte Hornets.
Jordan, who owns the NBA franchise, told French outlet L’Equipe in an interview posted Saturday that he’s “pretty sure” he could take the squad.
“I’m pretty sure I can, so I don’t want to do that and demolish their confidence,” Jordan, said when asked if he could win against some of his players in one-on-one. “So I stay away from them, I let them think they’re good, think that they are good — but I’m too old to do that anyway.”
Jordan is 52, but the Hornets did finish with a 33-49 record this past season (and 28th in both points per game and offensive rating). So maybe not totally a stretch.
Jordan’s remarks come around the 2:59 mark.
