As for kobe saying what he did. With kobe, being kobe he probably believes him alone being on the team makes them better. DAT EGO.
Pippen/Jordan could both guard Lebron. Not a single doubt in my mind. Shut him down? Absolutely not(you need Jason Terry to do that), but guard him effectively? Yeah, I could see them doing that.
DAT EGO is right. although a 33 year old Kobe with 16 years on him trying to even attempt to guard MJ would be pretty funny. I'd say Kobe is still an elite defender when he tries, but no way he could do that for long and you know he would demand to guard him too.
