Jordan's Duels With Hamilton
Jordan and Hamilton Bet on Shooting Contests

Pistons Guard Richard Hamilton confirmed a Bloomberg News report that he participated in high-stakes, post-practice shooting contests with former teammate Michael Jordan when the two were members of the Wizards in 2001-02.
But Hamilton said that money never changed hands, even though the pots reportedly reached as high as $40,000. That's because, according to Hamilton, Jordan was the one always losing and would never leave the gym until he broke even.
"We never exchanged money," Hamilton said last week. "We played until he got even."
On Friday, a publicist for Jordan said the former NBA superstar was traveling and unavailable for comment.
"When you are Michael Jordan," Hamilton said, "the best player who ever played -- and team president -- nobody is going to leave until you get even."
The two used to make wagers on half-court shots.
"There were times he would get up on me, but by the time we were done, we'd be even," said Hamilton, whose salary this season is $7.3 million.
Hamilton said that Jordan was so intent on winning -- or at least lowering his debt -- that he would make the team bus wait up to 90 minutes while he and Hamilton dueled.
"There are times the team had to wait at least that long," Hamilton said.
