22-year-old Hornets’ forward Miles Bridges wants a piece of 57-year-old Michael Jordan.
On Saturday an old 2015 interview of Jordan saying that he could beat Hornets players one-on-one today went viral.
Do you think you can play against some of your guys right now? Do you sometimes do that or not? Could you win on one-on-ones against them?
Jordan: I’m pretty sure I can, so I don’t want to do that and demolish their confidence. So I stay away from them, I let them think they’re good…but I’m too old to do that anyway.
Bridges saw Jordan’s quote as some sort of challenge and called out the Hornet’s owner.
NBA Twitter had a bit of fun with Bridges’ challenge.
