We all know Michael Jordan was unstoppable. Whenever he wanted to go to the rim and score on his rivals, there was nothing they could do to prevent him from getting those buckets. He was a great scorer, with great tools to get those points. Trying to stop him was a nightmare for everybody, no matter how great you were as a defender.
Have you ever dreamed about playing against Michael Jordan? Well, the Chicago Bulls have tried to put NBA fans in that place, creating a challenge for the bravest of people. The Bulls Twitter account launched the $5 million challenge on Friday, but not even that kind of money convinced people to take on the challenge.
The premise is very clear. You can win $5 million if you can score against Michael Jordan in a hypothetical one-on-one game. You have 10 chances to do so, but this is against prime Jordan. In case you fail, you won’t be allowed to listen to music ever again.
Fans went crazy on this, showing their confidence they can do the job in only one play while others said for that money they’d do anything to score on Mike.
Free agent Isaiah Thomas also responded to the challenge, claiming he would score at least once 'for sure'. IT hasn't been the type of person that runs from adversities, so you know he'd do something against match in this imagined match.
Jordan didn’t hesitate to put people in their places in pickup games. We’re talking about the greatest of all time during his prime; it’s anything but an easy job. So now the question is: would you take the challenge?
