Michael Jordan defeated by Kawhi Leonard in shooting contest (Video)

Although Michael Jordan no longer laces up the sneakers and hits the hardwood in front of 20,000 fans every night, the legend still possesses the skills that made him the envy of every child in the 1990′s.

Earlier this week we saw Michael Jordan knocking down shot after shot (eleven in a row, to be exact) during a video from his basketball camp. But what we didn’t see is Michael Jordan having a shooting competition with Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs.

The 2014 NBA Finals MVP and Jordan brand endorser made a special appearance during Michael Jordan’s basketball camp and decided to partake in the action.

He and another camper decided they would have a pop-shot game against Jordan and a fellow camper which delighted the mass of a crowd in attendance.

Things started out well for the Chicago Bulls great but after a missed shot, things got dicey. Still, Jordan had to be rather confident about his teams performance considering the major knock on Kawhi Leonard coming out of San Diego State was that the San Antonio Spurs forward can’t shoot the rock.

Yeah, about that – no.

Leonard looked to channel his inner Reggie Miller as he and his partner looked flawless during their round as the young star didn’t even miss a shot.

Very cool gesture by both Michael Jordan and Kawhi Leonard to do this for those kids as they’ll have a memory that will last their entire life. It’s cool enough to say you played basketball with one NBA Finals MVP, but two?! Awesome.
