Robert Pera wants to take on Michael Jordan in hoops Robert Pera is the youngest owner in the NBA at 35 years old, but apparently has the most confidence – at least in his hoops game. Pera appears to be decent at hoops and clearly keeps himself in good shape. As you can tell in this video, he probably could beat just about any owner in the league, but Michael Jordan, may be a tall order. Pera is obviously thirsty for some attention as he already has challenged Tony Allen to a game of one-on-one, and now has called out Mark Cuban and Michael Jordan. Maybe Pera has forgotten that the majority of the owners in the league are probably old enough to be his dad and in some cases his grandpa! What’s with all the 1:1 with @mcuban talk? I’m in, but I would make quick work of him… — Robert J Pera (@RobertPera) October 15, 2013 If we are talking an owner game, get me MJ! I’ll up the charity contribution to $1mm — Robert J Pera (@RobertPera) October 15, 2013 Settle down Robert Pera! Jordan doesn’t take it easy on people that call him out – just ask O.J. Mayo. The post Memphis Grizzlies owner challenges Michael Jordan to one-on-one game appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
BEST OF MAXIM
There may not be another owner in sports more confident in their on-court skills than Grizzlies owner Robert Pera.
Pera was scheduled to play his employee Tony Allen one-on-one for charity but that’s been postponed. That’s now stopping Pera from challenging others however.

Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera is starting just his second season as head of an NBA team, though that isn't stopping him from challenging the game's most iconic player.

Never forget the Orlando Magic are paying Gilbert Arenas $22 million this year. When you have bread like that, you can do what Arenas did and put up a photo on Instagram using a heavy wad of money as toilet paper. H/T CJZERO
Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera is starting his second season in charge of an NBA team and he's already calling out Michael Jordan.
Pera who had a 1-on-1 preseason challenge against Grizzlies guard Tony Allen canceled several weeks ago is seeking a game against Jordan with $1 million going to charity.
The challenge came in a Twitter exchange Monday where Pera...
A few rules to live by -- you don’t put on Superman’s cape and jump out of a high rise building, spit in to the wind or eat yellow snow. One can also add another rule to live by -- don’t challenge Michael Jordan to a basketball game. However, it appears no one shared this last rule with Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera.
Pera is no slouch when comes to playing basketball...
Membership has its privileges ... especially when you're ponying up big money for charity.
On Tuesday, Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert J. Pera took a friendly shot across the bow at Michael Jordan, inviting the Charlotte Bobcats principal owner to a one-on-one match with the winner presumably netting at least 1 million for his favorite charity.
The Hall of Famer Jordan, who...
While anyone who’s anyone has heard of Michael Jordan, I’ll bet only a handful of people have heard of Robert Pera. Yet the self-made, 35 year old billionaire, who recently purchased the Memphis Grizzlies, challenged #23 to a one-on-one game via Twitter. This came after Tony Allen cancelled a one-on-one match against Pera, which would’ve raised $100,000 for St. Jude Children’s...
Gilbert Arenas making $22 million this year from the NBA for doing absolutely nothing. God Bless America and just in case you forgot, Gilbert wants to remind you he’s rich.
Pera’s challenge was about as comical as Jordan’s jeans.
Yesterday we reported that Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera challenged fellow owner and NBA GOAT Michael Jordan to a 1-on-1 game for charity.
Today, MJ responded to the challenge just as I expected him to.
“I think that’s comical,’’ Jordan said. “It didn’t make any sense. Why would I play one one-on-one?...
We all know that Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol is a low-post threat but did you know that he is one talented assist man?
Check out this incredible no-look pass that he dropped to teammate Zach Randolph during Sunday’s preseason game against Maccabi Haifa:

Quincy Pondexter scored 24 points, Marc Gasol and Jerryd Bayless added 18 each, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-99 in a preseason game on Tuesday night.

When given the option of seeing a player step out of the shadows of insecurity and into the light of promise; thereby guiding his team to a nail biting win, or the option of watching a simple blowout, give me the nail biting win every time.
It’s moments like last night’s heroics by Mike Conley, and the emergence of Quincy Poindexter that make fans stay up in local pubs and overstay...
I guess this is what happens when you’re making $22 million and doing nothing but sitting on your ass all day. By the way, that $22 million makes Gilbert Arenas the third-highest paid player in the NBA this season.
