1 on 1: Jordan vs LeBron
Two years ago, LeBron vs Jordan in a one-on-one was nearly a toss-up. It was difficult to say who would be able to stop who.
Two years later, LeBron has become perhaps the best perimeter defender in league, refined his post game, and is shooting three's at 42% a clip. He's won a ring, proved he can take over any game whenever he wants, and catches fire in nearly every game.
Who wins in a one-on-one? Is it LeBron by a landslide now?
Jordan would win, as long as the officials would let him. LeBron looks so good, but the guy flops all over the place, and gets away with absolute murder. The NBA refs are afraid to call a foul on him. I know many will say that it was the same with Jordan,but it was never like this. Plus Michael would intimidate the &$#%#&@! out of LeBron with his relentless trash talking.
I'd really like to see LeBron play the game without the help, but that will never happen.
Jordan is better 1 on 1 player than Lebron will ever be and that's a fact,Lebron is all round player,but Jordan could score 50 on every night,don't matter who guard's him. It's no brainer,Jordan all day.
Sorry to be that guy, but I'd rather see Kobe vs Jordan.
you guys ever watch the deadliest warrior on spike? that show takes data from warriors from the past and puts them through a program that runs numerous battles to see who would win.
that would be pretty cool if they did something like that for these ball players. take in their actual stats, x-factors, how they do against defenders of different heights/wing spans, vertical jumping abilities.. etc and see who the overall winning would be after many games.
i wouldn't mind watching a computer generated version of these players going up against each other :D
It was a toss up two years ago? According to whom?
first of all i don't want to hate but MJ all the time go check on BB reference Jordan stats against the best defenders in the league really, In the 1988-89 season he had 15 triple doubles. including an incredible streak of 7 consecutive and 10 in 11 games that started on March 25, 1989... he was averaging a triple double per game... don't get me wrong Stat wise i can see Lebron surprassing Kobe, MJ and whatever... but really Kobe or Lebron started playing with 18 yrs old and if you resume 15 yrs pro Kobe against Jordan 15 yrs that's a LOL,
Well the way I see it, you got mj who would be quicker then lebron then you got lebron who would be stronger then my but even with the strength it kinda wouldn't make a big difference since lebron still doesn't have a post game LIKE THAT so mj's quickness makes more of the big difference. With that being said I assume you must be a heats fan because only a heats fan could say "2 years ago it was debatable" & "is it lebron by a landslide now" because those are wild things to say or ask. Nothing against lebron because he's beyond great but Mj is &$#%#&@! MJ

You guys should know better by now to never say Jordan isn't the best at everything on this forum...
33 pts, 8 reb, 8 ast, 3 stls, and 1 blk, while shooting 54%. Lebron's never done that.
