Michael Jordan says Kobe Bryant gets the edge over LeBron James because of rings


Once again when asked the question, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, Michael has answered in favor of Kobe. Granted, Michael’s judgement has been questionable lately; those wide leg jeans are a violation that’s extremely hard to move past. His assertion that 5 rings beats 1 is not only truthful but intriguing.

“If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice,” said Jordan, “but five beats one every time I look at it.”


The comments are from an NBA TV interview set to on Monday, February 18th to celebrate Jordan’s 50th birthday.

LeBron James in on an incredible stretch right now. He’s scored over 30 points for the last 6 games while averaging at least 60% shooting. Never been done in NBA history.

Lebron responded to Jordan’s comments by saying, “I don’t play for others people approval.” Touché King James. Jordan only had one title at the age of 28 too.

Plus you have to think, Kobe sacrificed a lot playing with Shaq. The two are tight now that the Big Diesel has retired and Kobe is owns one more ring than Shaq. Kobe recently referred to their time together as “alpha duo,” also saying how he appreciates the time they played together so much more now. Especially how dominant they were.
