Grumpy Old Man? TO calls out MJ, says he would destroy him on court

File this under . . . takes one to know one?
Terrell Owens, as famous for his trash talk, shirtless crunches on his driveway and numerous underwhelming attempts at an NFL comeback as he is for the Hall of Fame-worthy stats he threw up, can't find an NFL suitor, instead relegated to "Celebrity Apprentice."
So, in T.O.'s never-ending quest to stay in the spotlight, ruffle feathers and make sure we all know how great he is, he recently told the world he is ready to take on all comers — in basketball, of course. And then he called out Michael Jordan, of course. And called him an old man, of course.
In a video for the social-media site HangWith, Owens dropped a couple N-bombs, told us how great his crossover and jumper are, and said of M.J. "I know he's 50-something years old. He used to be M.J., but he would be crossed-up M.J. if he comes messin' with me right now."
And for the record, Owens is 40, has not played in the NFL since 2010 with Cincinnati, and is six years removed from his last 1,000-yard season. Jordan is 51 and hasn't played in the NBA since 2003.
