Even as he approaches his 50th birthday, Michael Jordan can still play. And the No. 2 pick in the draft will be the first to admit it.

Charlotte Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist confessed Friday that Jordan beat him in a one-on-one game.
"It was hard for me," Kidd-Gilchrist, almost 20, told USA Today before the Rising Stars Challenge rookie-sophomore game at All-Star Weekend. "I lost. I lost to a 50-year-old guy. ... He's the greatest man that ever played the game.
"Oh, yeah. He's good."
How about taking it easy to make the boss look good? The 6-foot-7 rookie out of Kentucky said that wasn't the case.
"No. I didn't allow him to beat me," he told CSNHouston. "Because that's my boss? Nah."
Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this season.
