Whether he comes back to the NBA or not, Jordan still can beat you in one-on-one … unless you’re better than the No. 2 pick in the draft.

Charlotte Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said Friday in Houston that 49-year-old Jordan beat him in a one-on-one game. Jordan turns 50 Sunday, while Kidd-Gilchrist is seven months away from turning 20.

“It was hard for me,” Kidd-Gilchrist said before playing in the Rising Stars Challenge rookie-sophomore game Friday night. “I lost. He’s the greatest man that ever played the game.

“Oh, yeah. He’s good.”

Either way, 49-year-olds are not supposed to beat 19-year-olds in this game. But Jordan plays by his own rules.
