Could Michael Jordan, in his prime, really beat LeBron James in a game of 1-on-1? In a video that started making the rounds on the 'net earlier today, MJ said yes. He admitted that he would probably struggle in a game of 1-on-1 against Kobe Bryant because, as Jordan put it, "he steals all my moves." And he even got a reaction out of Kobe on Twitter. But LeBron wasn't all that excited to talk about the idea of playing against Jordan 1-on-1. Just check out the reaction that ESPN's Brian Windhorst got when he asked LeBron about it:
LeBron on MJ saying he could beat him 1-on-1 in their primes: "MJ said that? I've thought about the matchup but no one will ever see it."— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) October 1, 2013
That's pretty much how we feel. It's fun to talk about the idea of MJ and LBJ playing 1-on-1 for, like, five minutes. But then we realize that it's impossible to actually find out who would win a game of 1-on-1 between the two. So it's really not even worth arguing about it anymore.
