Former Washington Wizard star player, Gilbert Arenas, said he can beat Chicago Bulls legend, Michael Jordan, in a game of one-on-one basketball and he has statistics to back it up.
Arenas believed Jordan can still play hoops at high level after the 50-year-old hoops star dunked at his basketball camp weeks ago. However, the former All-Star claimed he can easily beat his Airness mano-a-mano.
He added the score would be 5-2 in his favor, though he also thought Jordan would obliterate him 20-0 when the play against each other at their prime.
But to make things interesting, Arenas came up with evidence that showed him outshining Jordan in an official NBA basketball game. Arenas posted the box score of a game between his Golden State Warriors and Jordan's Wizards on March 23, 2003. Agent Zero dropped 41 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, while Jordan recorded 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
Arenas went on to win the Most Improved Player of the Year and signed with the Wizards the next year when Jordan officially made his retirement from competitive basketball.

Unfortunately, things didn't work out well for Arenas in the following years, as he was enmeshed with controversies - notoriously gun brandishing inside Wizards locker room - and inconsistency in his plays.
Arenas is entitled to pocket $22,346,536 million from the Orlando Magic after being amnestied 2 years ago.
