This ESPN feature on Michael Jordan just continues to produce gems, doesn't it? Towards the end of the piece, senior writer Wright Thompson talks about Jordan watching a Charlotte Bobcats game when the announcer introduces yet another LeBron James/MJ comparison. That conversation leads to Jordan revealing that he studies LeBron and has found a flaw in his game.

When LeBron goes right, he usually drives; when he goes left, he usually shoots a jumper. It has to do with his mechanics and how he loads the ball for release. "So if I have to guard him," Jordan says, "I'm gonna push him left so nine times out of 10, he's gonna shoot a jump shot. If he goes right, he's going to the hole and I can't stop him. So I ain't letting him go right."

Hmm. Guess we're going to have to take a closer look at James next time he steps onto the court.
