    Haha, I dunno how quick Arenas is now, but it is hard to imagine a 50 year old guarding a 30 year old who still plays semi-professional basketball. Jordan could kill him on offense, he wouldn't even have to drive, he could just shoot jump shot after jump shot.


    This would actually be really entertaining to watch, if Jordan wasn't such a egomaniac, it would be awesome to see at like an All-Star game or something. Legends vs. retirees.

    Why the hell is he talking **** to a 50 year old Michael Jordan? His ass can't even get back into the NBA.

    Dumbass.

    So what. I bet that I can beat the 2030 #1 overall pick right now. Easily.

    Knee injuries and the guns in the locker room incident.

    It's a shame since he was a great scorer in his prime and was one of my favorite players growing up. The unlimited range on his jumpshot was straight sexy.

    Arenas might be on something, he's pretty loaded, and he's a deadly shooter.

    thats the thing i love about Hardens game

    I think he will age very well

    even if he is 40, he will still be able to shoot those FTs

    Well it's not like Gilbert Arenas depending on athleticism.

    Arenas, if he gets his head straight and at least 75% of his game can be a good fit. Imagine him instead of Lin receiving those 3 pts freebies... That said, I'm just dreaming.

    I would hope that he could beat a 50 year old Jordan

    Random thought:

    I would pay good money to see a prime Ryan Bowen play a game of 21 against a 50 year old Jordan. Morbid curiosity I suppose.
