And if you consider trash talkin debating ehhh..
Put Michael Jordan on meet the press and watch! For this kind of format, he has:
1. Deep pipes, which instantly gives you credibility even if you don't know what you're talking about (and he would)
2. screen charisma which people relate to
3. An analytical mind to fall back on
4. And a quick wit for improptu line of questioning
Basically he would do great against any kind of press.
