Michael Jordan thinks that he could beat just about anyone in a game of 1-of-1. Jerry West? Yeah. Carmelo Anthony? Yeah. Julius Erving? Yeah. Elgin Baylor? Yeah. LeBron James? Yeah. He thinks he could take them all if he matched up against them on the court. But there is one player who might give him a run for his money. That player? None other than Kobe Bryant. And MJ's reasoning for it might surprise you.

"I don't think I would lose [to anyone]," he said in a new promo video for NBA 2K14, "other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves."

Damn! MJ does have a point here (just go watch this video). But what a backhanded compliment to give to Kobe. We anxiously await a response from #24.
