Rant Versus: LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan
LeBron James is currently the best player in the NBA, but when living legend Michael Jordan was recently asked in a promo for NBA 2K14 who’d win in a one-on-one game between the two during their primes, Jordan bluntly stated, “I don’t think I’d lose.” And seeing as he is the guy who saved both the Tunesquad and the free world from the evil clutches of the “Monstars,” I’m inclined to believe him.
It’s been almost 20 years since Jordan was in his athletic prime, and I’m starting to think that people are somehow forgetting how insanely good His Airness was. Even though it is clear that LeBron is the next guy on the Darwinism Chart of Evolution, Jordan had an internal fire and chip on his shoulder that hasn’t been matched by any competitor in any sport ever.
Even giving up 40 pounds and 2 inches to the “manimal” that is LeBron James, Jordan was a beast of a defender and had more moves in his offensive repertoire than a gigolo! No matter which way you slice it, a game of one on one between two evenly matched opponents comes down to heart, and we all know Jordan would rip out LeBron’s heart and eat it, before he would ever let the King take a seat on his thrown.
