Michael Jordan is 52 years old and hasn’t played an NBA game since 2003.
But Pistons center Andre Drummond doesn’t have much confidence in himself that he could beat the Bulls icon in a game of one-on-one, according to his interview with TMZ.
The interview came after Jordan, now the chairman of the Hornets, was asked last weekend whether he could beat Hornets players one-on-one.
“I’m pretty sure I can, so I don’t want to do that and demolish their confidence,” Jordan said. “So I stay away from them, I let them think they’re good … but I’m too old to do that anyway.”
Reggie Miller chimed in on the subject, too, saying he’d love a game of one-on-one with Jordan.
Following up on those comments, TMZ asked Drummond whether he could beat Jordan. His answer exuded anything but confidence.
“I don’t know,” Drummond said. “I heard he’s still got it. I think he’s still got it.
“I’m gonna do my best. That’s all that matters.”
