Michael Jordan shoots down kids’ shoe dreams
Kids at a basketball camp learned the hard way never to bet against a legend like Michael Jordan

MANILA, Philippines — Michael Jordan was no Santa Claus to the kids at his Flight School.

In a basketball training camp together with Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul as well as retired NBA champion Derek Fisher, a series of bets against the NBA legend took place – bets that tested the competitiveness of the 53-year-old former champion.

Everyone at the camp learned very quickly that no matter how old Jordan gets, it’s always a bad idea to bet against him.

The first bet: if Jordan missed 3 shots, the whole camp would get free Jordan shoes.

The man known as the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) proved why he still owns that label to this day. Nothing but net for all 3 shots. Still cold-blooded.


In another bet, Paul gave the kids another opportunity to get those shoes with Jordan setting the rules. If Paul made all of his 3-pointers, everyone would get shoes. As Paul worked his way around the arc, with pandemonium breaking out among the children watching, bad luck struck and Paul’s final attempt rimmed out.

In the final bet, Jordan again set the rules saying Fisher should make all of his free throws for the kids to get shoes. Unfortunately, Fisher missed a free throw.
