Michael Jordan's takeover of the Charlotte Hornets' Twitter account on Tuesday had some good moments early in the day, but he was just warming up at that point. In the middle of the afternoon, the "MJ Takeover" reached a high point.

One of the first things Jordan tweeted about was his team's opener on Wednesday night:

Charlotte Hornets @hornets

Special perks of being owner, already got my commemorative ticket and shirt for opening night. Niiiiiice #MJTakeover http://t.co/R8VnZPUZd3

That prompted this response from professional golfer Keegan Bradley:

Keegan Bradley @Keegan_Bradley

.@hornets MJ how does it feel to get beat by me everyday at bears club?! #GoHornets

Given that Jordan is one of the best trash-talkers in the history of sports, he wasn't going to sit there and take that:

Keegan Bradley @Keegan_Bradley

“@hornets: .@Keegan_Bradley Last time I looked, you were wearing MY shoes. You don't see me wearing Air Keegans...” Hahaha. Damn. Game over

And with that, Jordan ended the battle.

Bradley couldn't believe that he got a response:

Keegan Bradley @Keegan_Bradley

@notthefakeSVP @hornets can't believe he knew how to respond. Thought he was too old for Twitter #MJTakeover

The Hornets owner does have a point. Bradley has been spotted wearing Jordans on the golf course:
