Gilbert Arenas Thinks He Can Beat Michael Jordan One-on-One

50-year-old Michael Jordan may still be able to dunk, but Gilbert Arenas thinks he can take the G.O.A.T. (at his current age) in a 1-on-1 battle. (Arenas added that a younger MJ would obliterate him.) Per TMZ: “31-year-old Arenas — who played for the Shanghai Sharks last season — was clearly impressed with the footage of MJ throwin’ one down last weekend, saying, ‘If he’s still dunking at 50, that means he’s still athletic enough to guard anyone.’ But if Jordan suddenly appeared at Gilbert’s home court — and wanted to go mano-a-mano — GA says it wouldn’t even be close … Jordan would go down. But Jordan in his prime vs. Gilbert in his prime — even Arenas admits, it would be a bloodbath.”

    Everyone knows Gilbert says STUPID stuff but I think he’s right here. RIGHT NOW my money would be on Gilbert. He’s younger and a lot quicker than a 50 year old Jordan.. And he still plays professionally.. When is the last time Jordan played?

  • Ben Ireland

    Guys, I think he mightttt be having a little fun here… I don’t think he intended to spark a serious debate haha

    lol What? Do yourself a favor and get a sense of humor. Those two have one.

  • shockexchange

    In the Shock Exchange’s opinion, this is a moot argument anyway you look at it. Even after Jordan wins, Gil will refuse to pay up and want to start a fight. (Gil Arenas voice) “Pick one.” *Welp*

    Gilbert in his prime was still a beast. No one in the league now has a similar game. Closest maybe would be like a better Damian Lillard.

  • robb

    With or without guns?

  • Ugh

    He plays pickup games with current and ex-NBAers weekly.

  • Ugh

    Not Steph Curry?

  • dannyb

    Is Arenas seriously only 31? Man he burned out early.

  • jaycee

    egos would take over and we would see something!

  • Noompsi

    Arenas, and Hollins thought he could make a difference v SAS… how wrong he was…
    kinda like LeBron being prodded by Deshawn… I mean, c’mon.

  • Noompsi

    @Lake… I’ma closet fan of you. F knows why.

  • Noompsi

    Good. I need an occidental sounding board.

  • RR

    I’m not saying Jordan can’t beat Gilbert, I’m just saying that gilbert saying he could beat Jordan now isn’t too far fetched.. It’s not like Gilbert was a scrub of a player in his prime.. I just think age is a factor.

    Him too as far as being streaky, but I think Steph is a better passer and doesn’t have better defensive potential. I do see Dame becoming better inside due to his body. Gil used to live at the FT line.

    Your outta the closet now Noomps.
