CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBSMiami/AP) — As Miami Heat superstar LeBron James continues to add championships to his resume; he’s starting to be mentioned in the same breath as arguably the greatest NBA player of all-time, Michael Jordan.
But Jordan thinks that in his prime, he could beat LeBron in a game of one-on-one, but he’s not sure he could beat Kobe Bryant.READ MORE: Halloween Spending Could Hit A Record This Year
In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game that is being released today, Jordan said there’s a long list of players he would’ve liked to have played one-on-one — Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Bryant and James, who dons the cover of this year’s game.
“I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, “Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”READ MORE: South Florida PBA Union President Steadman Stahl On Stress Of Being A Police Officer
Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and considered by many the greatest basketball player ever, has had a sponsorship deal with 2K Sports since 2011, when he first appeared on the cover of the popular game.
The 50-year-old Jordan, who was a five-time league MVP, also shared the cover in 2012 with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.
This year will be the first time on the cover for James, a four-time league MVP who has led the Miami Heat to back-to-back NBA championships.MORE NEWS: Shot Doral Police Officer In Serious But Stable Condition, Second Officer Recovering
