Magic Johnson: Michael Jordan would take LeBron one-on-one

Magic Johnson believes Michael Jordan is one of the most unstoppable forces in NBA history and that the former Chicago Bulls legend would cream LeBron James in a game of one-on-one.

ESPN has been running daily features on Jordan legend leading up to his 50th birthday on Sunday. One of the debates the network tried to ignite on Tuesday was who would win in a one-on-one game between Jordan and LeBron. The debate has a little more spice given how well James has been playing lately.

Magic, who is an NBA analyst for ESPN and one of the best players all time, chimed in on the debate via his Twitter account.

Just because Magic believes MJ would demolish LeBron one-on-one doesn’t mean he thinks lowly of James.

I think most people would agree with Magic. Though James would have a size advantage over Jordan, LeBron is more of a team player than one-on-one player. James could take most players one-on-one, but we’re talking about Michael Jordan here who refuses to lose.

    Lebron is a great player and athelete, but MJ is 100 times the competitor that LJ is. His drive to want to beat you is unmatched. Any advantage LJ would have over MJ physically is equalized, and then far surpassed by MJ’s near mental sickness for wanting to win.
