    Kidd-Gilchrist lost to Jordan in 1-on-1

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist didn’t think he would lose. Not in 1-on-1. Not to a 50-year-old guy.

    He was wrong.

    But hey, at least that 50-year-old guy was His Airness, Michael Jordan.

    Kidd-Gilchrist, 19, said the 1-on-1 game between he and Jordan, who is the majority owner of the Bobcats, the team for which Kidd-Gilchrist plays, happened about a month ago after a practice.

    “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."

    Did Kidd-Gilchrist even really lose, though. Or did he let his boss beat him?

    “No,” he said emphatically. “No. I didn’t allow him to beat me. Because that’s my boss? Nah.”

    Jordan recently talked about trying to get back down to his playing weight with Wright Thompson for an in-depth ESPN story. The story, along with the well-known competitive nature of Jordan, has sparked some debate and rumors about a possible comeback for Jordan, who is already in the Hall of Fame.

    “That wouldn’t shock me at all,” Kidd-Gilchrist said about a possible Jordan comeback. “He still has it. He does.”

    I know this doesn't mean he could handle a NBA season, but I found it entertaining nonetheless. The fact that a 50 year Jordan can still school a 19 year high energy player like MKG is pretty cool.

    i bet all he did was post up and fadeaway. he will never lose his ability to post up and shoot over either shoulder but i doubt he can still play full court defense. a lot less running involved in one on one.

    If MJ starts a one-on-one game, you're not going to see the ball again.. His post up, fadeaway is unguardable...Even at 50

    That's cool.

    He'd still be a liability on 30 out of 30 teams.

    It's the perfect storm for a comeback.
    I hope it doesn't happen though...

    I don't think MKG went all out either. Jordan is his boss after all.
