Memphis Grizzlies' majority owner Robert Pera has promised to donate $1m to charity if Michael Jordan, widely-regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time, takes him on in a one-on-one challenge.

Pera, who was previously set to take on Memphis guard Tony Allen in a one-on-one, has now set his sights - and his charity donation - a little.

He tweeted the challenge - although only to his followers, on account of Jordan not yet being on Twitter.

Jordan, who turned 50 in February, is famous for his two successful spells with the Chicago Bulls in 1984-1993 and 1995-1998. He also spent two years with the Washington Wizard and won six NBA championships and was named the NBA's most valuable player five times.

Pera, meanwhile, showed that he has a few skills in his locker in a video which has done the rounds on YouTube.

Surely there would only be one winner? Watch this space.
