Who does Michael Jordan pick: Kobe or LeBron? MJ: “Five (rings) beats one every time.”



It’s been the argument for many a fan for years and years – and it seems Michael Jordan is no different.

MJ was recently asked by Ahmad Rashard who he’d take: Kobe Bryant or LeBron James.

Jordan’s taking the Black Mamba, according to the Sun Sentinel:

To this day, it’s still all about championships for Michael Jordan.

So when interviewed for a special that will run Monday at 8 p.m. on NBA TV, the six-time NBA champion former Chicago Bulls guard said he currently views Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant as having the more successful career to this point than Miami Heat forward LeBron James.

“If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice,” Jordan, now owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, told program host Ahmad Rashard, “but five beats one every time I look at it.”

Bryant has won five championships with the Lakers, with James winning his first NBA title last June.

I’m not gonna argue with MJ here…
