If you have to bet, bet on yourself; Ja Morant probably after he told Bleacher Report that he would’ve cooked Michael Jordan in the 90s.

Jordan, who went unbeaten in the Finals at 6-0, won five MVPs and was arguably the greatest of all time. But that doesn’t faze the ever-athletic Memphis Grizzlies superstar.

“I wish I would’ve played in his generation. Just how he went about the game, that mindset he had … I would like to play against him. … I would’ve cooked him, too,” he said.

The 6’3″ guard averaged 27.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.7 assists last season, where he won the Most Improved Player award.

However, their postseason run ended at the hands of the Warriors after he suffered a leg injury.

Compared to Jordan, in his third year in the league as well, he had an average of 37.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 5.9 assists.

Just by the number, the latter would definitely cook the opponent.
