    watch games instead of listening to rumors. jordan guarded magic the majority of the time. and beat him in 5 games. he also won their career series matchup 6 to 5 and held magic below his averages for the years they met in the regular season (including all of magic's mvp years). in fact if you'd been watching ball in the 80s you might have heard jordan referred to as one of the top magic johnson defenders of the day.

    if you're wondering jordan's averages are all higher. in fact he had 2 more rebounds than magic, 12 more points, 1.5 more steals, and 1 more block per game. magic did have 4 more assists. than a shooting guard. who won more games despite not having kareem on his team. of course magic didn't guard jordan because magic didn't guard any good offensive players if riley could find a way to hide him.

    nice try though. give it five or six years and you'll be able to say made up crap like that and there won't be anyone old enough to actually remember the games to correct you.

    Jordan's Defense >>>>> Lebron's defense

    Lebron wouldn't even be able to score

    and Jordan's offense > Lebron's O

    Jordan is much more consistant than Lebron is...

    jesus christ...Lebron has one great playoff series and now he can beat Jordan one on one!!!!!!

    I thought this thread was a joke when I read the title
    I agree with everything you said Jordan would school Lebron.

    The only person that can beat Jordan is Jordan

    finally i hear an intelligent comment. to ya. Dennis Rodman could be one of the perfect example - he went up against bigger and maybe stronger opponents, just to name a few - Karl Malone, Shaquille O'Neal, etc.

    Lebron may have the size advantage but Jordan would be able to stop him 5 out of 10 times. Lebron will only be able to stop Jordan 2 out of 10 times.

    Jordan wins ! easily! to Lebron.

    to Jordan. and to Lebron.

    all jordan would have to do is step out side and shoot the ball....no need to drive...

    and Shaq can't dribble worth a SH-IT...Jordan would steal the ball 90% of the time...

    Jordan 100
    Shaq 8
    give Shaq a break, we all know he can't dribble for sh-it. If they play full court 1 on 1 MJ wins 21-10. If they play half court 1 on 1 MJ wins again 21-15

    Book it

    then why don't they?

    is shaq just the only one to figure it out? hey, maybe i can just run over people. no, shaq is an athletic freak.

    I guess you took these numbers from the "head2head" section of basketball-reference. Note, however, that in these 11 games, they include a game where Magic only played for 10 minutes (an injury kept him out for 5 games) and the 1996 game, when Magic was past his prime.

    Even if we exclude only the 1st game, his numbers go up, from 20.1/5.7/10.8 to 21.4/6.1/11.5.

    yes i did. wanted to see if magic did indeed hand it to mj, statiscially speaking.

    i believe those numbers are still below his career averages. you make a good point though. anyway, my point wasn't to run down magic, greatest pg ever, just to indicate that jordan's defense on magic was by no means sub-standard. i think the evidence supports that. not as well as watching mike defend did, but well enough.

    With all respect to Lebron James, he wouldn't be a challenge for MJ. i'll wait to see how he will develop his skills, though, before judging him any further.
