Mayo received a lethal dose of reality after saying he could take Michael Jordan as a youngster.

Ummm…did you see the MICHAEL JORDAN’s NBA 2K14 interview I posted yesterday? (Click here if not.) The one where MJ says only KOBE BRYANT could beat him? Well, His Airness also talks about schooling O.J. MAYO at his kids camp when Mayo was a high school standout. Of course, someone has found the video of that schooling scolding that Jordan put on Mayo…

Jordan spared Mayo no mercy as he posted up the clueless young defender and proceeded to splash jumper after jumper while amazed onlookers observed.

At the time, Mayo was the best high school prospect in the country. Why he decided to talk smack to the greatest player on the planet is beyond me. However, at Milwaukee Bucks camp on Tuesday, the question was raised to Mayo…

Mayo says as a young buck you dream of going against the best and felt he had everything to gain and nothing to lose.

Great way to look at it. Even better way of knowing exactly where he (Mayo) stands next to the absolute best.

Precisely where everyone else that has ever tried to take on Jordan wound up: On the losing end.
