Jordan: I’d beat LeBron, not Kobe in 1-on-1
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
In his prime, Michael Jordan thinks he would have defeated LeBron James and other NBA legends in a game of one-on-one. But there’s one matchup Jordan wasn’t sure about.
Jordan was interviewed by Ahmad Rashad for an upcoming promo video for NBA 2K14. He said he’d like to have played games against Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade, among others, and was confident in his ability to defeat all comers.
“I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said, “other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”
