Kawhi Leonard beats Michael Jordan in shooting contest (VIDEO)

Aug 6, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

The headline may or may not be true; others seem to feel that’s what happened, and I didn’t bother keeping score.

But anytime we can watch Michael Jordan compete on the basketball court, even at the age of 51 and wearing shoes more aimed at fashion than hardwood performance, we do it — especially in the early days of August.

Kawhi Leonard appeared at Jordan’s basketball camp, and teamed with a youngster to apparently get the best of one of the all-time greats.

    MJ should just get the jumpman tattooed on his face. You think that logo on his shirt can get any bigger?

    Look at the bleachers in the back. One jumpman logo wasn’t enough back there? He has 10 of them in the space of about 20 feet!

      Now I just realized why MJ holds these camps. I never thought of it like that before – but it’s just a brainwashing program. Gotta get ‘em at an early age!

    I mean like I had at their age of the older guys.

    Caption was true, yet so misleading.

    Any current NBA player can’t really brag on beating a retired, 51 year-old player in basketball. It’s a no-win situation.
