Years Michael Jordan played
This has been significantly more than 12 many years since jordan played basketball expertly, but time does not may actually have used away some of the competitive nature which aided made him a six-time NBA champ.
In an interview with France's L'Equipe, the 52-year-old NBA owner had been asked whether he thought he could beat their Charlotte Hornets players one-on-one.
"i am pretty sure i could, therefore I do not want to accomplish this and demolish their self-confidence, " Jordan stated smiling. "So I steer clear of all of them, we let them think they are good, but i am too old to accomplish this anyhow."
Jordan's competitive nature has-been well documented and resulted in his incredible success off and on the court through the years, but since 2006 when he became a minority owner of Charlotte Bobcats, which reclaimed the Hornets name final season, and later most owner in 2010, their group has-been scarcely competitive.
They've achieved the Eastern meeting playoffs twice in that time frame (2009-10, 2013-14) but were swept in the first round in both appearances.
"It was difficult in my situation, " stated Kidd-Gilchrist in 2013 as he had been simply 20 years old plus in his rookie season. "we destroyed. He's the best man that ever before played the game."
