Michael Jordan Believes He Can Still Beat Any Hornets Player 1 - On - 1

Anyone that was fortunate enough to watch Michael Jordan at the height of his powers knows that he was something to behold on the court. Whether he was rocking the opposition to sleep with an unguardable fade away or going down the lane for a poster, he could pretty much get anyone at anytime at will. Well even at the age of 52, MJ thinks he can still give NBA players the work. He mainly spoke about the team that he owns, the Charlotte Hornets but it would be easy to think that he could probably do that to a few more players.

During the press run for the Quai 54 Streetball World Championship and the Palais 23 Experience, Jordan sat for an interview with France's L'Equipe and that is when he got bold. The journalist asked Michael if he practices with his players or can beat them and the G.O.A.T did not mince words:

L'Equipe: "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."

If that isn't the utmost confidence, we surely don't know what that is. Check the video to see what else "His Airness" had to say on the matter.
