    damn good question, lebron would out power jordan but jordan is more athletic and quicker, but lebron has a hell of a shot and can drive in the paint efficiently as can jordan, id say LEBRON 12-10 just because lebron isnt even fully in his prime yet lol, hes pretty young still only 22.. when hes 25-26, he will be very, very good

    No contest . . . Jordan! In his prime, he was better in every category. The only argument for LeBron would be that we haven't seen him in his prime yet, so we're not fully sure of his capabilities. Nonetheless, I think Jordan would still school him. MICHAEL JORDAN. Anyone who doubts this needs to go back and watch Jordan perform in any of the playoff seasons where he dazzled everyone and destroyed all comers. LeBron will never play quite like that in the playoff season . . .

    Jordan would destroy LeBron. Quicker. Much much more skilled. Much better shooter. Much better at driving. Much much better defender. Stop trying to compare any player to Michael Jordan in his prime. It's a disgrace and a slight to Michael Jordan.

    Lebron has a couple of inches advantage and he can use his size to post up against Jordan. But I'd still say Jordan, he isn't considered the greatest baller ever for nothing.

    Ten out of ten times, Michael Jordan. He had an attitude that winning was THE only thing and he would win. MJ was that rare superstar who had the will to win, no matter what the scorrboard read.

    dewayne wade would beat furnish hill. wades athleticism and slashing skill is very almost unrivaled and he would get extra factors around the bucket. Hill in his top would have stood as much as wade yet i nevertheless think of wade would win. i think of that jordan would desire to beat james along with his exterior taking photos, even nonetheless i'd supply lebron a rebounding side. yet i dont think of one on one extremely brings out the better component of their video games. Jordan became a great playmaker and lebron has great courtvision, to no longer point out the two are athletic rebounders. i'd supply the reasonable side to jordan as his protection would be an s-factor. Jordan wopuld get him down eaarly, and methodically keep him down with the lockdown d he on no account have been given adequate admire for. As for Erving v. Carter, i think of Erving's basically sound game would better than make up for VC's bounce-out-of-the-section athleticism. DW def. GH 21-12 MJ def LJ 21-17 JE def. VC 21-10

    Michael Jordan, because he is a more intelligent player than Lebron. He is also a better shooter and defender than Lebron.
