Jordan still has skills

. fast facts

Like Mike, even at 50

He turns 50 today, but Michael Jordan still has game. Just ask the draft's No. 2 pick, 19-year-old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Jordan beat the Bobcats rookie recently playing one-on-one.

"It was hard for me," Kidd-Gilchrist told USA Today. "I lost to a 50-year-old guy. … He's the greatest man that ever played the game."

But did the 6-foot-7 rookie go easy on the 6-6 old guy, who also happens to be his boss as owner of the Bobcats? "No. I didn't allow him to beat me," he told regional sports network CSN Houston. "Because that's my boss? Nah."
