Whenever Michael Jordan has anything to say about the game of basketball or any players in the league, we all stand still and listen.
In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game, MJ reveals some of the players, past and present, he would’ve liked to play one-on-one. Those names include Jerry West, Julius Erviing, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Lebron James.
As far as beating these players, he said he probably could, except for Kobe.
The video hasn’t surfaced just yet but in it according to ESPN, Jordan says, "I don't think I would lose," and adding, "other than to Kobe Bryant, because he steals all of my moves."
Later in the video, when asked who he thought was the better player between Kobe and Lebron, MJ replied, “In terms of dominance in the game of basketball at this stage, its Lebron.”
Jordan also went on to speak about the difference between the game back then when he played versus today.
"You go in with the understanding of 'I'm going to get hit. I'm going to pay the price,'" he said. "But that's part of the game. I'm not going to be afraid to go inside. Those are the types of things that these kids don't even have a clue of how we had to grow up and how we had to play."
As far as his famous trash talking on and off the court, Jordan said, "I didn't talk trash to people I didn't know."
Do you think Jordan could beat Lebron? And do you agree with MJ saying Lebron is the best right now?
