Charlotte Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist lost a one-on-one basketball game to his boss. That sounds bad, until you realize the greatest basketball player of all time is the Bobcats’ majority owner.
Michael Jordan turns 50 on Sunday, and he was still able to beat the 19-year-old Gilchrist.
“It was hard for me,” the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NBA draft told USA Today. “I lost. He’s the greatest man that ever played the game.”
Gilchrist is averaging 9.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in his rookie season. He participated in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge where he scored eight points and brought down four rebounds.
