Michael Jordan: One-on-one with Grizzlies' Pera 'comical'
Bobcats owner and Hall of Famer has no interest in a one-on-one game with the Grizzlies' owner.
Grizzlies majority owner Robert Pera challenged Hall of Famer and Bobcats ower Michael Jordan to a one-on-one game this week with a $1 million prize purse for charity. On Wednesday, the widely-proclaimed "Greatest Of All Time" responded to the Charlotte Observer:
“I think that’s comical,’’ Jordan said. “It didn’t make any sense. Why would I play one one-on-one? It’s a no-win situation for me no matter what.”
So, that doesn't sound like that's going to happen. But hey, a billionaire can dream, right?
Wait, maybe we can make this happen. We just have to get Jordan's competitive juices flowing. How's this?
"Probably for the best. Jordan's so old now, he'd probably lose, and then that would be embarrasing. Too bad. Jordan used to take his pride so seriously. And now he's just going to let a tech mogul run him like that. Sad, really."
... Please don't hurt me, MJ.
