MJ knows deep down that if Lebron continues improve, he may go down as the new GOAT therefore by picking Kobe, he some how keeps himself legit number 1 because based on efficiency MJ is greater then Kobe.

I actually think MJ is set against LeBron. From memory I've never really heard him say anything overly positive about the guy. Right now it feels like he has to begrudgingly acknowledge LeBron's ability.

MJ has totally lost it.

He is just rewarding kobe with his kobe's dog like cheap immitation of his game.

MJ knows LBJ is original product cuz da man has his own style & game. something kobe seriously lacks.

Anyone who picks Kobe over LBJ since 2008 is a full retard, & that includes MJ.

He's talking most successful, which is career-wise.

I mean, career-wise, Kobe does have a slightly better resume. LeBron will definitely surpass him in due time.

MJ sounds kindof like a Kobetard, he refuses to call Lebron better than Kobe, since forever... the only compliment he ever gave to Lebron was the likes of: "He is good"... You really think so MJ?

People can even ask MJ: "Who do you think is playing better NOW, not 10 years ago, as in it has nothing to do with career accomplishments".... Jordan would still go: [i]"Kobe, 5 is more than 1"... Kobe can retire he would probably still "pick" him... 5 rings...

By his own reasoning, that means:

1. Bill Russell clearly gets the nod over Jordan himself. Eleven is bigger than six....

2. Jordan was not playing better than Bird or Magic in 1991.... because he had only 1 ring and Magic/Bird had many more....


Come on MJ......

You're being a butthurt bitch.

Jordan has never spoken that highly of any current player, including Kobe. Remember the "Kobe is a top 10 guard of all time" comment? Yeah, blatant back-handed compliment.

You're crying just because Jordan isn't all over Lebron's dick.

Isnt Kobe a top 10 guard of all time? That i consider is very true and is a compliment.... why is it back-handed just because he didnt want to categorise Kobe (and himself) more thoroughly?

Certainly a compliment it seems he wouldnt dare express upon Lebron even though he is a top 10 SF of all time....

I am not butthurt, but it seems like MJ just might be... its getting more and more obvious...

Jordan has said according to Kobe people that Kobe is the only one that has put in the work to be compared to him, he has called Kobe the best in the league even when Lebron was clear MVP. And whenever someone ask Jordan is he's the greatest of all time he talks about all the great players there have been, doesn't want to disrespect them. So Jordan is not going to say Kobe is a top 5 guard of all time and in so saying he's number 1, and discounting people like Magic, Stockton and other point guards, since you people forget that it was guards that they were talking about and not just shooting guards.

If I said "LeBron is a top 10 player in the NBA today" is that a good thing or a bad thing? If someone is top 3, you don't say top 10.

If you ask Jordan in an interview and not where he ranks, he'll say top 10 guard of all time, because he's always talking about not being disrespectful to other all time great guards. And remember, he wasn't talking about just shooting guards.
