In an exclusive interview with 2K Sports, Michael Jordan discussed how soft the NBA is today and players he would like to play one-on-one if he were still in his prime. To no one’s surprise, Jordan mentioned Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. While he stated that he would beat LeBron, Jordan wasn’t too sure about Kobe because Bryant has stolen all his moves.
Jordan’s comments came as a surprise to LeBron, who is this year’s cover athlete for NBA 2K14. While in the Bahamas for training camp, James said that he’s always thought about the matchup, but it obviously won’t happen. Bryant took those comments to Twitter and acknowledged he stole some of Jordan’s moves, but this generation has stolen his as well.
