Jordan picks Kobe over Lebron
When asked if he would pick Kobe or Lebron, Michael Jordan decided on the 5 time champion Kobe Bryant. The most interesting thing about his answer was about how both he and Kobe are “cursed”. By cursed I think he means cursed with an intense competitive nature where you don’t know when to stop competing. Other NBA analysts also chime in with their answers. Check it out below.
Lebron did not seem fazed by Jordan’s response. Although I can’t believe that he’s not even a little bit hurt by Jordan’s words.
In the end it seems that what really matters is the number of championships. Kobe has proven that he can be a champion on 5 separate occasions, and Lebron has only done it once. No one is saying that Lebron won’t get more championships than Kobe, but considering their entire careers, I would agree that Kobe has been the more dominant player.
I think the debate now is no longer Kobe vs. Lebron. Kobe is getting up there in years and won’t be able to compete much longer. Now the debate has shifted to Lebron vs. Durant. Both players are dominant and both are hyper competitive. Which one would you choose at this point? Please leave your comments below.
