Michael Jordan Takes Kobe Over LeBron
When asked whether he’d pick KobeBryant or LeBron James during an interview with Ahmad Rashad on NBA TV early 2013, Michael Jordan gave the nod to Bryant, saying, “If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it, and not that he [LeBron James] won’t get five, he may get more than that, but five is bigger than one.” Later in the year, Jordan said he’d go with James…but only because Bryant was battling through injuries. Sounds like he made James his default pick.
