After coming off of a win over Kobe, Jordan now faces the latest heir to the thrown in King James. Lebron is hailed as one of the best defenders in the game today, and he better be ready as he’s now up against the greatest scorer this game has ever seen…oh, and he’s not too bad of a defender himself. James is goings to get some points muscling himself to the basket, but MJs athletic ability is going to make it tough. Between this game and the last round versus Kobe, I imagine you would see a fire in Jordan like no other. He will unleash upon Lebron an offensive arsenal like that of 1000 gods, and when all is said and done will remove the crown from Lebron’s torched soul and walk into the final round with a 15-10 victory.
Lebron wins this matchup every time. He’s just physically more gifted.
Sometimes games are more about heart than talent and I think that’s what wins this matchup in a marathon squeaker. I give the edge to MJ even though I really want to give it to Lebron.
Jordan vs. Lebron! Can it get any better? Michael Jordan retired the GOAT and that title will be his until someone takes it. That someone will be Lebron James. If this was a MVP or Championship contest, then Lebron would be DOA, but it’s not. Lebron James is Jordan’s equal in 1-on-1 offensive ability and on the ball defense and his size and strength give him a measurable edge in a 1-on-1 contest. The only real advantage that MJ would have on Lebron is his ability to be “CLUTCH”. Lebron is starting to earn a rep for performing under pressure, but MJ has had that rep since his college days. One shot, one game, one moment, and then Jordan is my pick. I am going to give a close hard-fought victory to Lebron James based on his ability to use his size and strength to score inside and force Jordan to rely on jumpers. Lebron Wins 15-12
I think King James takes this game and it really won’t be as close as some people think. He’s bigger, stronger, more athletic and has more range than MJ. Both are great defenders, but Lebron’s post game is his biggest advantage. 15-8.
