Michael Jordan recently said there’s “no question” he’d beat LeBron James in a game of one-on-one if both players were in their prime.

LeBron, when asked the question by NBC’s Today show, said that he would emerge victorious over the GOAT if he hypothetically matched up against MJ in his prime.

The four-time MVP and two-time NBA champion is often compared to Michael Jordan in the conversation of the greatest basketball players of all time. Recently, the ultra-competitive Jordan was asked whether he could beat James one-on-one during his prime and answered, “No question.”


“Oh, I take myself,” James told Geist. “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.”
