Malik Monk Sheds Light on Ankle Injury, Doubles Down on MJ


As soon as Malik Monk was drafted by Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets, the former Wildcat was forced to field questions about his new boss.  One of them continues to be asked:

“Could you beat Jordan one-on-one?”

Monk has never been political with his response, always answering affirmatively.  He doubled down today in an interview during the Hornets’ first Summer League game.

“He’s pretty old right now.  I think I could get him,” Monk said.

Monk was being interviewed during the game because he is doubtful to play this summer.  He sprained his left ankle during pre-draft workouts.  In the interview he revealed that it happened during a closeout, about “three to four weeks” before the draft.  See everything he had to say on NBA TV:
