Oh, Michael Jordan, never change.

The man regarded by many as the greatest basketball player ever thinks that, at his best, he could beat LeBron James one-on-one. (Presumably, he saw how much bigger LeBron looked Monday and heard James say that he wants to be the best of all time.)

Jordan, in a video for the NBA 2K14 game that is being released today, says he’d like to have gone one-on-one against Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and James. Only one player causes doubt to creep into his mind and even that guy does it in the most Michael Jordan way ever.

“I don’t think I would lose — other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”
