Miles Bridges may have taken the long-standing bait from one of the NBA’s best-ever trash talkers.
The Charlotte Hornets forward responded to a five-year-old comment from team owner and NBA legend Michael Jordan, when Jordan said he was “pretty sure” he could beat players on his team in a game of one-on-one. Jordan even threw a quick jab by adding he didn’t want to beat them and “demolish their confidence.”
Apparently, Bridges hopes the 2015 invitation is still open. The 22-year-old responded to the resurfaced tweet with one of his own, saying “Let’s get it then” in regards to the matchup.

The 2018 first-round pick currently is among the most promising Hornets players. The Michigan State product was amid a respectable sophomore season, averaging 13 points in 65 games.
Jordan, of course, has been in the news throughout much of the last few months due to ESPN’s “The Last Dance” series showcasing Jordan and his 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.
The final episode will air Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.
