Michael Jordan Gets His Ass Handed To Him…

Michael Jordan might be the greatest player to ever lace up a pair of kicks, but he’s in his 40’s and needs to accept that fact. A youngster gave Mike the business recently. Pop the top to find out who and how…
Jordan got beat in a game of H-O-R-S-E by rookie guard Gerald Henderson Jr., twice.
From the AP:
One of Michael Jordan’s first acts since reaching a deal to buy the Charlotte Bobcats: losing two games of H-O-R-S-E to guard Gerald Henderson.
A trash-talking Jordan attended the Bobcats’ shootaround Monday morning before their game against Dallas, challenging the rookie Henderson to a shooting competition after the workout.
Sporting his ever-present jeans, Jordan missed jumper after jumper on his way to losing both games to a rookie who is shooting less than 34 percent from the field. Egads!
Even worse, Henderson is from Duke, which makes the losses even more painful for Jordan, a University of North Carolina alum. And while Jordan’s shooting might not be championship quality, his trash talk still is.
“You’ve got to miss eventually,” Henderson told him.
“That’s what Cleveland said,” replied Jordan, referring to his last-second shot for Chicago in 1989 to win a playoff series over the Cavaliers.
Zing! Except Henderson was right. Jordan did eventually miss.
