LeBron James is the best player in the world. Just ask him.
But Michael Jordan at age 52 could still beat his Charlotte Hornets players in a one-on-one. Just ask him. In any language.

The Jordanesque answer:
I’m pretty sure I can, so I don’t want to do that and demolish their confidence. So I stay away from them, I let them think they’re good … but I’m too old to do that anyway.
