LeBron Fires Back At Michael Jordan, Says He’d Win A 1-On-1

They might just have to do this

For years, the debate has been whether or not Michael Jordan or LeBron James is the superior basketball player. Would LeBron have been able to do what Jordan did with Phil Jackson, Scottie Pippen and company? Would Jordan have led this depleted 2014-2015 Cavs team to the finals? The debates are endless, and they continue to evolve.

Well, Jordan and LeBron themselves have been swept into it, and after Michael Jordan said last week that he would beat LeBron, “no question,” LeBron has fired back via his interview with The Today Show. King James was asked who he’d pick in that hypothetical epic legend vs legend battle, and of course, the 4-time MVP picked Mich…himself.

“Oh, I take myself. For sure. I mean, I’m gonna take myself versus anybody. I’ll tell you one thing—they’re gonna have to have a few wheelchairs and a couple ambulances there to get us off the floor.”

Hey, guys. Do it for charity? (And satisfy the wet dreams of every basketball fan ever while you’re at it).

 

Youth Camper Hits Micheal Jordan With the “What are Those” Line

These kids are so disrespectful these days

At the Micheal Jordan Flight School, a young camper hit MJ with some post-Space Jam lingo. The now viral “What are Those” reference was give to the GOAT as he was taking questions from the campers. Jordan, who is 52 years-old, gave a typical old man response, and had to get clarification on what exactly young Bryce meant by the jeer.

Pure comedy.

NBA Players are Having an Emoji Battle on Twitter and it’s Amazing

This is the funniest thing you’ll see today
As previously reported, the Los Angeles Clippers embarked on a hair-brained mission to retrieve their star center, DeAndre Jordan, back from the clutches of the Dallas Mavericks, with whom he was set to sign an $80 million deal once free agents are eligible to sign new deals tomorrow.
The initial reports, which came from, ESPN, sparked an emoji war on Twitter, with Mavericks and Clippers players tweeting plane, car and boat emojis, signifying they were either flying, driving, or boating their way to DeAndre Jordan to ensure that he signs with their team.

Don’t count Mike Woodson out of it either.

That eventually became an all-NBA emoji fest, and people like Kobe Bryant, the Jumpman team, the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers all joined in.

In celebration of Jordan Brand’s 23 year anniversary, a “Cigar and Champagne” Pack is being released for the second year straight. The retro Air Jordan 7 are known as the sneakers MJ wore on the way to his second NBA championship in 1992. This NBA Finals featured a heated series between Michael’s Chicago Bulls and the Portland Trailblazers, where we saw the iconic Michael Jordan “Shrug Game”.

This release features ”Maroon/Metallic Gold” with a gum outsole (Cigar) as well as a “White/Black/Metallic Gold” (Champagne) pair. These kicks will also feature championship ring lacelocks. The Air Jordan 7 “Cigar and Champagne” Pack will release Saturday, June 20th, and retail for $250 each. However, with Nike still working on its online store, sneakerheads need to find another way to cop this heat.

Bill Laimbeer on LeBron & the Cavs: “Jordan Could Not Have Led this Team to the Finals”

The former NBA Champion and All-Star has a pretty definitive answer for the LBJ vs MJ debate

LeBron James has led the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals, a feat that was originally thought to be improbable when they had a losing record after 39 games, but one that became apparent throughout the playoffs, despite Cleveland’s struggles with injuries. Kevin Love, who the Cavs traded their #1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins for during the off-season, got lost for the playoffs during their opening round series with Boston, and Kyrie Irving hobbled throughout the last two match-ups with the Bulls and Hawks. Regardless, LeBron James is touted as the world’s best player for a reason, and here the Cavs are, prepping for June 4th’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Laimbeer took LeBron’s successful postseason one step further, and made it very clear that he believed Michael Jordan couldn’t have done the same.

Look at what LeBron has in the Finals right now. Could anybody else in the world have led this team of role players to the Finals right now? I don’t think so. Jordan could not have led this team to the Finals.

Well. Tell them how you really feel, Bill. That soundbite was taken from Laimbeer’s interview with Dan Patrick today, during which he also broke down his opinion analytically.

He [LeBron] can do more. Michael Jordan could score and make big shots and look spectacular at times with wild flying dunks, but LeBron can get you 18 rebounds, get you 15 assists, or score 50 if he wants to. The triple threat he poses is just phenomenal, and the size—he just physically dominates. It’s impressive.

Interesting. No doubt what LeBron’s done these playoffs has been spectacular, but are we forgetting that Jordan has never lost an NBA Finals series? LeBron has lost more than he’s won. It may take a little more time for this current #23 to be worthy of that argument, Bill.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, though.

Michael Jordan Is Still Dropping Buckets And Talking Trash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmWYB73Yr8U

Although we will never see Michael Jordan play in the NBA again every now and then we’re blessed with small clips of the GOAT doing what he’s known best for, dropping buckets. Over the weekend, a clip of Michael Jordan playing a pickup basketball game with Tom Brady and Keegan Bradley surfaced.  MJ is seen knocking down his signature fadeway jumper while talking trash to his opponent. Jordan is clearly heard saying, “Hey man, you don’t have YouTube? You better put on Michael Jordan, for real.” At age 52, Michael Jordan may not be the best basketball player in the world anymore but he still might be one of the best trash talkers.

March 28, 2015 would make it 20 years since Michael Jordan made his return from early retirement to Madison Square Garden to play the New York Knicks wearing the number “45”. Five games into his return from his retirement many people were unsure of whether MJ could return as the same dominant player he was known as in the NBA during his entire career. Jordan quickly silenced those doubters by dropping 55 on the Knicks in what became known by many as the “Double Nickel” game. In honor of Jordan Brand celebrating its 30th anniversary as well as the 20th anniversary of the “double nickel” game the Air Jordan 10 Retro “Double Nickel” will be rereleased on March 28th and will retail for $190 USD.  These retros will include the OG Chicago Bulls color-way along with the number “45” embroidered on the side.
