A few days ago, His Airness, Michael Jordan, was quoted saying he could’ve beaten LeBron James in his prime but not so sure about Kobe Bryant because Kobe stole all His Airness’ moves. Again this shows that MJ still continues to favor Kobe over LBJ. Is this surprising? Not really.
MJ toyed around big men. He was really very crafty around the rim. And it’s easy to see LBJ as another big because, well, he is big. Plus, see MJ23 and KB24 are both cerebral players, not to mention the fact that it’s easy to compare them because they both played the SG spot so well. That’s why it’s very easy to see they trump other guards and embarrass beanpoles and towers of power.
