It all started back in February 2013, Jordan said that Kobe's five championship rings ranks him above LeBron, who only had one at the time.During his Flight School in Santa Barbara, California, Michael Jordan was asked the question once again. To answer the question, the Hall of Famer used the number of championships to determine who's better.
"Now he (LeBron) may be better than that, but Kobe won five championships".
"Would I rank LeBron over Kobe?" The former Bull was a ideal 6-0 in his NBA Finals appearances, including a few game-winning shots and six NBA Finals MVP awards.
James has already played 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association since entering the league in 2003, and he holds career averages of 27.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.0 assists while shooting 50% from the field.
It is true that Kobe won five National Basketball Association championships in his illustrious career, but does it really mean that he's better than LeBron James?
Jordan said LeBron has been to seven NBA Finals, but he's actually been to eight in his career.
Paul George has been considered the top target but it has also been said the Lakers are gearing up to acquire LeBron James or Russell Westbrook.
