Jeremy Lin, asked if he could beat MJ one-on-one, considers who boss is

The Charlotte Hornets host their season-opening media day on Friday, which will give fans and media a chance to get to know the newest additions to the team a little better. But Jeremy Lin, who was signed by Charlotte this offseason, gave a preview on Thursday night when he hosted a surprise AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit.

There were a few technical difficulties at first, but once the ball got rolling, Lin had hilarity to share. But the most important question came relatively early: Could Lin beat Michael Jordan, who owns the Hornets, in a game of one-on-one? Not with each in their primes, mind you -- right here, right now.

Lin took the diplomatic route, saying, "He's my I'll let him have this one lol." Although that might be vague enough to warrant a trip to the practice court from Jordan. Challenge accepted?

Looking backward, Lin said that the coolest thing that happened during "Linsanity" was the life-size jersey made out of fruit snacks that he received -- framed, of course, so he wasn't able to eat it:

Lin revealed what it was like to meet Riley Curry -- "starstruck" -- and talked video games. But the top comment as of 8:23 p.m. ET on the AMA concerned Kobe Bryant, naturally. Lin's mentioned before that everyone who visits his home takes off their shoes; does that apply to the Black Mamba?

"Doesn't matter who you are, house rules apply! Even my momma needs to take her shoes off in my house lol."

Lol, indeed.
