LeBron James is too soft to have played in Michael Jordan’s era.

That’s at least the thinking of many retrograde fans and former players.

But maybe Jordan – a notorious gambler with plenty of long nights under his belt – wouldn’t have made it today.

Jordan speaking about Tiger Woods, via Cigar Aficionado:

I don’t know if I could’ve survived in this Twitter time, where you don’t have the privacy that you would want and what seems to be very innocent can always be misinterpreted.

I think LeBron would have excelled in the 90s and Jordan would have been great today, but each would have faced adjustments in playing style and lifestyle.

Mostly, I just appreciate the rare vulnerability from Jordan. How will his fans cope?
