Michael Jordan

I'd Destroy LeBron in 1-on-1

Michael Jordan says there's only one guy who would beat him in a game of 1-on-1 ... and it ain't LeBron James -- it's Kobe Bryant.

MJ made the statement in a video promoting the NBA 2K14 -- while talking about a bunch of NBA legends he would've liked to ball against in their prime, including Jerry West, D-Wade, Carmelo, Kobe, LeBron and more.

"I don't think I would lose," Jordan says ... adding, "other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves."

MJ was later asked who was the better player -- Kobe or LBJ -- and explained, "In terms of dominance in the game of basketball at this stage, it's LeBron."

But he added, "Championshipwise, it's Kobe."

Sounds like MJ's not threatened by Kobe but is worried that some day Lebron might be thought of as the greatest player of all time.

Pathetic. You are so yesterday MJ, get over yourself. Lebron is so much more powerful and has matching skills. Sorry MJ, no contest

This is not news. Anyone over the age of 35 knows it's the truth. But I'm sure all these kids who only know Jordan from video games and history books will disagree

wow    

How does "I don't think I will lose" become "dominate"? Tmz is becoming a joke. He said he doesn't think he would lose not that he would dominate. He is talking about his prime obviously not now. Shame on you again tmz. You have zero credibility.
