According to Air Jordan himself, the NBA legend Michael Jordan believes that in his prime he could beat LeBron James one-on-one, but Kobe Bryant would give him trouble because he stole and mastered some of Jordan’s signature moves.
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, Kobe Bryant and Lebron 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.
