You would think possibly the greatest player ever could land something better than that.

MJ has picked Kobe for years now. Why are people shocked?

Either he is talking about their careers... thats understandable... or MJ is one insecure old bitter guy...
Kobe's old now, but a couple years ago he was asked in 09 and 10, he said Kobe.

Bulllshyt!!! That was a salty response, had he chosen James, he would be getting all wet saying what a honor it is.

I'm not going to argue that Kobe is a better passer or rebounder, because he isn't. But Kobe from 05' to 07' was a better scorer than LeBron ever will be or has. If you deny this you're either:
1.) too young (most likely)
2.) blatant kobe hater/bron bron dick rider

MJ is irrelevant to the NBA unless we're talking about how pitiful he is as a GM.

i'll never understand why Kobe couldn't have learned to pass earlier in his career than now. i know he's capable and probably has always been capable but its just bball IQ to pass it for easy baskets when everyone is so focused on you. MJ figured it out way earlier than Kobe, and to think Kobe just got it this late in his career is just pitiful. he's a beast this year but really stupid way too many games throughout his previous career to not hold it against him. they wouldn't have ever needed nash if Kobe played like this before.

the ring argument has so much to do with luck its lame when people play it so hard.

I'm disappointed in Jordan's logic. Perhaps he's talking about their career and with the mindset that nothing else but rings matters. If so that's a good mentality to have, but still doesn't mean that the player with more championship is better than the more dominant player, especially when that other player has been in the league much longer. This interview also probably happened before Lebron's stretch. But either Jordan believes that championships are everything, but he should look at it who he would pick to start a franchise.
