Michael Jordan has had some pretty interesting summer camp moments over the past few days. First he won a shooting contest over current Bulls guard Jimmy Butler. Then a kid tried to clown Jordan by uttering the “What are Those?” infamous internet meme. (Jordan’s response shows that he also won that as well). Then on Saturday Jordan held a Q&A session in Santa Barbara in front of hundreds of campers. He weighed in on a number of topics and was quite revealing in some of his answers.
Among the topics he discussed and questions he answered:
– If he had one game left and could choose any coach, would he take Phil Jackson or Dean Smith?
– How did he feel after the Pistons had their infamous walk-off after being swept in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals:
– Who is the biggest trash talker he ever played against?
– If he could play one-on-one vs. LeBron or Curry, who would he choose?
– On which athlete he would hire as a part of the Team Jordan brand.
– On if he could beat LeBron in his prime.
– He weighs in on the discussion about the all-time Bulls team vs. the all-time Lakers team that Shaq and Scottie Pippen then took to a new level.
– His best pick-up game he ever played.
– What did you see in Kwame Brown when you drafted him?
– If you could choose any one player in their prime to be on the Hornets, who would it be?
– Jordan also threw a little jab at Kobe Bryant at the end. Overall it was a revealing interview from the G.O.A.T.
