The Lebron and Kobe debate has returned just when we thought "His Airness" would quietly celebrate his 50th birthday, which is Feb. 17. The eternal debate involving Kobe Bryant and LeBron James has resurfaced. For Jordan, the rings are the main argument.
In a recent interview with NBATV that will air on Monday, Michael Jordan has confirmed that if he had to make a choice today, he would take Kobe over LeBron. It is unclear in what context he was talking about, but the choice seems easy for the Chicago Bulls legend.
"If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice," Jordan told program host Ahmad Rashad via the Sun-Sentinel, "but five beats one every time I look at it." "Jordan smiled, referring to the number of titles won by two players.
"And not that he won't get five," Jordan said of James. "He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one."
Considered the best player of all time, MJ has admitted that the choice was difficult. Bryant has played 17 seasons in the NBA, versus 10 for James.
James, who is having one of the best seasons of his career, frankly confessed that he is not interested in this type of conjecture.
"That doesn't matter to me,he said. "If you take Kobe one and then I go second . . . it doesn't matter. I don't really get too involved about what guys say about me, or if you take Kobe or if you take LeBron."
Now that we have Air Jordan's opinion on the Kobe and Lebron debate. Would you choose Kobe over Lebron?
