Not saying LeBron would beat MJ or Kobe in one-on-one but to say they'd win every time just because they're guards is idiotic.
80-20 percent. To me in the case of Lebron versus Jordan or Kobe. Lebron would lose 8 out of 10. The best players in the league now are old and just because it would be a clutch defining moment, he would blow it.
Lebron versus Magic and Bird though would probably be split. Which in Lebron's case would be a loss, because he probably should beat them but wouldn't.
To each his own though. I just know that Jordan is more athletically gifted without a doubt. Faster forty, higher vertical leap, ability to leave basketball mid career, play baseball and then come back and win 3 championships is athletic testament and once again with the Wizards. Plus athletically Lebron won't endure much past 36-38 and he won't be what Jordan still was at those ages. I'm not even a Lebron hater either. I enjoy watching him play and he earned his Championship this year.
