Michael Jordan's confidence remains at an all-time high.
Speaking at his 20th annual Michael Jordan Flight School camp in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Saturday, the Hall of Famer and six-time NBA champion fielded a bunch of questions from his young campers.
When asked if he could beat LeBron James one-on-one in his prime, Jordan answered as one would expect a legend to.
"No question!" Jordan said with impact, throwing his young audience into a frenzy.
Oddly enough, when asked earlier in the Q&A session if he could defeat James, 30, right now at the age of 52, Jordan admittedly offered: "LeBron is a little bit too big."
Yes, 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds of King James would be hard for a 6-foot-6, 216-pound Jordan to stop now or even in his prime, but who's brave enough to bet against MJ? While it's all hypothetical at this point, just imagine how that one-on-one would go.
Other jewels from the Q&A session included Jordan saying a team of Chicago Bulls greats would "kill" a squad of Los Angeles Lakers legends when asked for his take on the Shaquille O'Neal-Scottie Pippen Instagram exchange in which they argued the same thing.
Another crowd-pleasing answer was Jordan's response to what kind of advice he'd give Kobe Bryant.
"Actually, Kobe and I are good friends. I like Kobe, we talk a lot, I hope he comes back healthy," Jordan said. "I think he's one of the great players of the game. I think he's done a lot for the game, and he has a true love for the game of basketball. I absolutely have high regard for Kobe Bryant.
"Even though he stole all my moves, but that's OK," Jordan joked. "I still love him like a brother."
Only one Jordan.
