There’s really no way to describe Michael Jordan‘s personality. You can call him a jerk, cocky or conceited, but you never know what’s going to come out of the man’s mouth. That’s why MJ raised eyebrows in more ways than one when asked about Kobe Bryant and LeBron James in an interview for the upcoming NBA 2K14 video game.
Jordan listed several all-time great players, including LeBron, and said he could beat all of them in a game of one-on-one. He then said the only player who might beat him is Kobe, but added that’s only because the Los Angeles Lakers‘ star “steals all of his moves.”
See what I mean? Only Jordan could utterly diss two future Hall of Famers who rule the game today in a single sentence. But he didn’t spot there; MJ also said Kevin Durant could end up being better than both players who overshadow him now.
Are these words of wisdom from His Airness or just Michael being Michael? Like LeBron said after hearing of Jordan’s comments, we’ll never know because these matchups are never going to happen. He’s obviously never heard of our series called Rant Versus. Check back to RantSports.com soon for our breakdown of Jordan versus LeBron.
