Michael Jordan Schools OJ Mayo at 2006 Basketball Camp

On Tuesday, Michael Jordan made headlines when he said he could beat LeBron James one-on-one in his prime during an ESPN interview. During that same interview, Jordan also shared an interesting story of how he schooled O.J. Mayo, who was in high school at the time, at one of his camps. 

The folks over at Larry Brown Sports have tracked down the video of Jordan vs. Mayo at the 2006 camp, and you can clearly see that MJ had his way with the high school star. 

According to LBS, here's what's going on in the video: "In the video, the first clip is from a game Jordan played in front of the whole camp. After that clip comes four highlights from the game where Jordan taught Mayo the lesson. You can see Jordan beat Mayo in every way possible in the game."

After the news broke Tuesday, Mayo took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.

Mayo told why he challenged the NBA legend: "I kind of had the mentality that I had everything to gain and nothing to lose. And Mike did what he had to do."

No shame in losing to the G.O.A.T.
