|Michael Jordan Beat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 1-On-1|
There isn't any shame in losing to Michael Jordan, not when Jordan was at the peak of his powers, or even now, at age 50. If a young rookie were to play a 50-year old man it would be reasonable to think the younger player would wipe the floor with his aged opponent, unless of course that guy was Michael Jordan, and that's exactly what happened when Michael Kidd-Gilchrist took on the Bobcats owner for a 'friendly' game of 1-on-1.
“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."
