Jay Williams Says LeBron James Would ‘Dominate’ Michael Jordan One on One
- Updated: May 21, 2018
While many argue that Jordan is the better player because of his six championship rings, former NBA player Jay Williams has found a new way to measure the competition that he believes gives James the clear advantage.
On Monday morning’s episode of ESPN’s “Get Up!” Williams made the case that James would have bested Jordan in a one-on-one game of basketball.
“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike,” Williams said. “In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds. If the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3.”
“LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”
“Get Up!” co-host Jalen Rose could not have disagreed more with Williams’ assertion, but there’s no denying that James has some clear advantages over Jordan when it comes to one-on-one basketball.
Unfortunately, fans will never get to see what would surely be an epic game of pickup basketball. Instead, they’ll have to continue looking for new ways to compare the two generationally dominant players.
