Michael Jordan Laughs Off 1-on-1 Challenge from Grizzlies Owner Robert Pera

When told that Robert Pera wanted to play him in a game of 1-on-1 for charity (and posterity), Michael Jordan found the suggestion “comical”, and said he won’t do it because it’s obviously a lose-lose situation for him. Per the Charlotte Observer: “If new Grizzlies owner Robert Pera wants to play one-on-one for $1 million to charity (as he said on Twitter), Jordan won’t be his opponent. ‘I think that’s comical,’’ Jordan said. ‘It didn’t make any sense. Why would I play one-on-one? It’s a no-win situation for me no matter what.’”

    I am genuinely surprised. Jordan made the right evaluation of this idiot’s (assuming he was serious) “challenge”.

    He’s right. If he won 11-0 without missing “pffft of course he should have won 11-0″ If he won 11-1 “omg as if he let that chump score on him” and so on…

    Pera is just trying to use his money to live out a boyhood dream and I don’t blame him. If I was rich like that I’d challenge Zoe Saldana to a one-on-one for $1million to charity.

    Waiting for a “If I was rich like that ______ Lola Falana *welp*” comment from shock

    His boyhood dream was getting destroyed 1 on 1 by Jordan?

    The more I think about it, I do not even think he believes he can win. He cannot be that stupid. Could he? I do think he believes he is a good player and he wants to see how he would do.

    Someone with his obvious leaning towards logical thinking should know better.
