Penny Hardaway talked about the competitive nature of NBA and Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.

Hardaway, who was one of Jordan’s rivals in the 90s, said the NBA icon is always out to prove he is the best in whatever he does.

“Michael definitely is (overdosed) on competitive nature. He’s always having to compete in every single thing he does. He lives for speed. He lives for the competitive nature.

He’ll bet everybody in the (golf) group on every single thing. ‘I bet I can drive it farther than you. I bet I can hit it closer to the hole than you. I bet I can make this putt — $10,000 to your $1,000.’ I mean, that’s just who he is,” Hardaway said, via Jason Munz of Memphis Commercial Appeal.
