Default One on One: Jordan vs. LeBron

So who wins?





I think LeBron is Bigger and maybe faster than Jordan but MJ's Defense would make it a decent game. I would guess that MJ wouldnt be able to stop LeBron as he goes to the hole though...

Final Score:


LeBron 21

Jordan 18


NO DOUBT LeBron wins this one...

So how do you guys see it, maybe someone can play it out on a simulator ala Rocky 6. I want to know who you fans (that know these 2 players better and that have some good "BasketBall IQ") think would win. It can be determined through stats or just straight belief...

Discuss!

Jordan would beat Lebron because Lebron's jumpshot isn't too great. Jordan's is excellent. And Jordan is a better slasher than Lebron, and has better defense. He would win.

The topic should be renamed like this.

One on One: Old Jordan vs Healthy Lebron


If Jordan was still like he was before, Jordan would win the game.

Lebron doesnt have to take that many jumpers to win IMO. Jordan Would get facialed if he stepped in front of LeBron.

I was thinking along the same lines, Mj on a "5 on 5" would be better but LeBron would defitnetly take the "1 on 1"!

you should be banned for this thread and if ANYONE picks Lebron I will be shocked...

Jordan's Defense >>>>> Lebron's defense

Lebron wouldn't even be able to score

and Jordan's offense > Lebron's O

Jordan is much more consistant than Lebron is...

jesus christ...Lebron has one great playoff series and now he can beat Jordan one on one!!!!!!

I thought this thread was a joke when I read the title

Not a fair match up cuz Lebron is bigger, but I still think that MJ would win cuz he has better D and would be able to slow Lebron down. Lebron wouldn't be able to stop MJ at all.

Yup.

Not sure why anyone would think Lebron could win this. He's not that explosive off the dribble (as compared to Jordan), doesn't have nearly as good a shot as Jordan, and isn't nearly the defender Jordan is. Oh yeah, and his size doesn't really matter because he has little post game to speak of anyway (and post defense was perhaps the strongest part of Jordan's defensive game anyway).

What, you think Lebron is just going to be able to barrel into Jordan all day and make shots while absorbing contact he himself initiated? Jordan wasn't weak, you know. And Jordan's defensive footwork and ballhawking abilities would make it difficult for Lebron to set up a rhythm for his drive.


Didn't Kobe do a great job against Lebron the last time they met? Jordan was a significantly better defender than Kobe. Bron hasn't become 10x the player he was a few months ago overnight, you know.

Didnt Jordan struggle with Magic? LeBron is essentially the same size as Magic, but on a whole different level in terms of athleticism.

But Magic is one of the GOATs'. Lebron isn't.
