Last week we had the Jordan Brand All Americans predict the score if they were to play Michael Jordan in his prime one-on-one to 11.

Most of the players conceded the L, but Whitney Young (Chicago) center Jahlil Okafor and Prime Prep (Dallas) point guard Emmanuel Mudiay confidently said that they could take MJ.

Some people were mad about that, but I love that mentality.

I want a player like that on my team!

Truth is a 17-year-old MJ would’ve said the same thing about Magic Johnson.

Confidence is undefeated.
