Michael Jordan, the best to ever play the game of basketball might be approaching the age of 50, but when you’re the greatest, there’s never any excuses. Charlotte Bobcats’ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, currently the youngest player in the NBA learned that the hard way.
In a game of one-on-one, Kentucky product Kidd-Gilchrist said he lost to the majority owner of the Bobcats M.J. and that he tried his very best to beat the legend.
“It was hard for me,” Kidd-Gilchrist said before playing in the Rising Stars Challenge rookie-sophomore game Friday night. “I lost. He’s the greatest man that ever played the game.
“Oh, yeah. He’s good.”
Losing to a 50-year-old man is always difficult to accept, but if it’s Michael Jordan, then it’s the only time where it becomes an honor more than anything else.
