Wasn’t Bron not long ago working to distance himself from MJ? Changed his number and all that.
The whole idea of LeBron using Jordan as a motivating factor so much that he looks at MJ trying to D him up every time he checks a text baffles me a bit. Is Jordan the guy LeBron has to surpass to be one day universally accepted as the best basketball player ever? Of course. But there are a number of players already in the way, one of which is named Kobe Bean Bryant. Kobe’s still ahead of LeBron in the all-time discussion, AND has 4 more rings than him (two of which were won while James was in the league). One at a time, Bron Bron.
Motivation is great. This is corny.
POLL: WHO WOULD WIN IN A GAME OF 1-ON-1 BETWEEN LEBRON AND JORDAN IN THEIR PRIMES?
Factors to consider: LeBron’s size, Jordan’s quickness, LeBron’s improved long-range shot, Jordan’s unequaled competitiveness, the fact that MJ would probably have thrown at least a $50 grand bet down from the jump.
Vote 1 for LeBron and 10 for Jordan
