HOUSTON The weekend started on Friday, when LeBron James started talking about Michael Jordan talking about LeBron James.
This is the nature of NBA All-Star weekend, which finishes with the All-Star game at 8 p.m. ET Sunday at Toyota Center in Houston. It is a weekend for sorting things out whos better than whom, what is the state of the NBA, how popular is basketball globally and how much are you going to tip the guy for the mixtape you just accepted on the street?
It was a natural time, then, for Jordan to say he would take Kobe Bryant over James, and an ever better time for James to shoot back.
"I don't really have a take on it," James said Friday in Houston. "He said he would take Kobe over me because he's won five championships. That's his own opinion."
James also explained that carrying out that sort of reasoning to its logical conclusion would mean taking Robert Horry (seven rings) over Jordan (six).
Bryant felt like he had the idea.

LeBron James sits down and chats with CNN’s Rachel Nichols during All-Star 2013 in Houston to talk about his first half run and compares his shooting accuracy to sitting on the beach with a tennis ball: “no matter where you throw it, it’s going to land in the water”, among other topics including the never ending Jordan/James debate.
