Ball Don't Lie - NBA

Maybe LeBron James(notes) should change his jersey number to 15. After all, that's what number Gerald Henderson(notes) wears, and he just beat Michael Jordan in H-O-R-S-E. Twice.

From the AP:

One of Michael Jordan's first acts since reaching a deal to buy the Charlotte Bobcats: losing two games of H-O-R-S-E to guard Gerald Henderson.

A trash-talking Jordan attended the Bobcats' shootaround Monday morning before their game against Dallas, challenging the rookie Henderson to a shooting competition after the workout.

Sporting his ever-present jeans, Jordan missed jumper after jumper on his way to losing both games to a rookie who is shooting less than 34 percent from the field. Egads!

Even worse, Henderson is from Duke, which makes the losses even more painful for Jordan, a University of North Carolina alum. And while Jordan's shooting might not be championship quality, his trash talk still is.

"You've got to miss eventually," Henderson told him.

"That's what Cleveland said," replied Jordan, referring to his last-second shot for Chicago in 1989 to win a playoff series over the Cavaliers.

Zing! Except Henderson was right. Jordan did eventually miss.

Reverse zing!
