CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NBA legend Michael Jordan believes he could beat LeBron James in a one-on-one basketball game when he was in his prime. He’s not sure about Kobe Bryant. In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game that is being released today, Jordan said there’s a long list of players he would’ve liked to have played one-on-one: Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Bryant and James, who dons the cover of this year’s game. “I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, “Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.” Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and considered by many the greatest basketball player ever, has had a sponsorship deal with 2K Sports since 2011, when he first appeared on the cover of the popular game. The 50-year-old Jordan, who was a five-time league MVP, also shared the cover in 2012 with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. This year will be the first time on the cover for James, a four-time league MVP who has led the Miami Heat to back-to-back NBA championships. Check out Jordan’s comments in the video below.
