Richard Jefferson's shocking statement about Michael Jordan

Richard Jefferson, renowned for his trolling prowess and unconventional viewpoints, recently provided a serious response when asked by TheScore about a hypothetical 1-on-1 matchup with Michael Jordan today. Jefferson confidently asserted that he would defeat the six-time champion by a score of 11-7.

"I'd cook his ass, no disrespect. MJ whooped me when he was 40 and I was 20, but bodies start catching up in different places when you're older. "

On February 17th, Michael Jordan marked his 61st birthday. While his age could be seen as a potential hindrance, his ingrained basketball skills and unwavering competitive drive have led even Jefferson, at 43 years old, to concede that MJ could score at least seven points against him in a one-on-one match. Jefferson, only four years older than LeBron James, who continues to dominate the NBA at 39, maintains remarkable physical condition despite retiring from his 17-year NBA career six years ago.

Comparatively, Jefferson's aging trajectory may not mirror LeBron's, but his enduring fitness is undeniable. I would confidently bet on Jefferson in a one-on-one matchup against Jordan at their current ages. However, other analysts such as Kendrick Perkins may give Jordan the edge, even at 61.
