Michael Jordan said “no question” he’d beat LeBron James 1-on-1 if both were in their primes.
LeBron has avoided directly addressing the debate.
I take myself. For sure. I mean, I’m going to take myself versus anybody. I’ll tell you one thing: They’re going to have to have a few wheelchairs and a couple ambulance there to get us off the floor.
I’d give Jordan the edge. Though I think both players reached very similar levels in their primes, one of LeBron’s biggest advantages over Jordan – passing – is irrelevant in 1-on-1. Jordan is a superior individual scorer and better defender, though LeBron’s size would pose problems.
