I’d Dominate Michael Jordan! (and Barack Obama)

by Kenny Eller on April 11, 2013

Michael Jordan Dominate

The USA Today asked eight of the top high school players in the country, all in attendance for Saturday’s Jordan Brand Classic, what they thought the final score would be if they played MJ 1-on-1.

Three of the eight ACTUALLY SAID THAT THEY WOULD WIN against MJ in his PRIME!

Which got me to thinking….

I’d dominate MJ too!

  • In cooking
  • Singing (OK, that might be a push…I don’t sing very well)
  • NBA 2K13
  • Running long distances (I’ve ran two half marathons)
  • Writing
  • The Rubik’s Cube (I’ve got skills)
  • Dancing (Sorry MJ, I’ve seen the video)
  • Instagram

  • Drinking Iced Tea

The list goes on and on and on….

BUT…one thing I wouldn’t dominate MJ in, THEN OR NOW, is the game of basketball.

Like I told Michael’s son Marcus…“I most likely wouldn’t even score…” and that was in reference to the 50-year-old Jordan.

I may be ambitious enough to create this site, to train and to travel, all with the goal of playing MJ 1-on-1, but I’m not crazy!!!!!

Now, Barack Obama on the other hand…he wouldn’t touch the ball against me!!  (2 for 22 video…ouch!  I can help you with your shot Mr. President.)

1 Game – me vs. Michael Jordan – Anything Is Possible with Faith & Hard Work!


If you’re new here, I set out in August 2010 to get a game of 1-on-1 vs. my childhood hero Michael Jordan.  This site is about that journey…through every valley, to every mountain top of triumph!

Anything Is Possible with Faith & Hard Work!

Kenny, Maybe you and I can set up a 2-2 against MJ and BO? I think we can take them????

Hey Kenny, hope bout we focus on convincing MJ to reopen senior flight school? I’m sure we could get him to do a little one on one with you in a venue like that. Like you, I turned “senior” enough just after he closed it–so bummed.

He still does the kids camp in California, seems like he could do the senior school too. I’d be in!

Sounds like a plan to me! Let’s do it!
