Michael Jordan Says He Could Beat LeBron James, Kobe Bryant Stole His Moves
UPDATE: The video has been added below.
This is a debate that will find no resolution, but is a prime example of the confidence of one Michael Jordan. According to Air Jordan himself, the NBA legend believes that in his prime he could beat LeBron James one-on-one, but Kobe Bryant would give him trouble for an interesting reason.
Reports the Associated Press:
In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game that is being released today, Jordan said there's a long list of players he would've liked to have played one-on-one - Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Bryant and James, who dons the cover of this year's game.
"I don't think I would lose," Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, "Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves."
Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and considered by many the greatest basketball player ever, has had a sponsorship deal with 2K Sports since 2011, when he first appeared on the cover of the popular game.
The 50-year-old Jordan, who was a five-time league MVP, also shared the cover in 2012 with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
LeBron James, who just won back to back NBA championships, graces the cover of NBA 2K14.
So, do you think Air Jordan in his prime would be able to handle Mamba and King James? Let us know your stance in the comments.
