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."

Jordan lacks the good manners, dignity and grace that LeBron demonstrates. Meeting this gum chewing moron one on one is a horror story. He is rude, ill mannered and dumb. Just enjoy your millions until your conchita wife takes it from you.

This is why the Bobcats suck their owner in living in a fantasy world instead of fixing his suck ass team.

LBJ chased rings whereas Jordan and Kobe rooted themselves and unleashed their own talent on the NBA. Jordan and Kobe are and will forever be the greatest relative to LBJ...not even close. LBJ stays in Cleveland and he still a zero.

Lebron is a better and more effective player than Kobe, just give it time. But he is not better than MJ in anyway.

mj a bitch. a hatin bitch....lebron is bigger, faster, and stronger than he ever was. he can play all 5 positions on the floor(kobe sure can't) so i see rings measure how much talent you got? knock it off, robert hory has 6 rings, charles barkley has none, who is going the the basketball hall of fame out of those two? this statement is easily true: LEBRON JAMES IS THE BEST BASKETBALL PLAYER THERE EVER WAS!!!!!!! GET IT THROUGH YA SKULLS!!!! just simply watch his games and see for yourself. jordan is a hater and a bitch!
