Michael Jordan's take on LeBron-Kobe debate: '5 beats 3'

  • Michael Jordan Ranks Kobe Bryant Over LeBron James In Greatest Of All-Time Debate

The "count the rings" argument is a steadfast one for the Bulls great as he proclaimed Kobe better than LeBron in a 2013 interview.

Michael Jordan has one simple math lesson for all his campers in San Francisco this week: Five is better than three. His teams have reached the NBA Finals eight times.

He holds the record for the most seasons played for a single franchise after his 20-year stint with the Lakers.

(Jordan) "There's something about five that beats three. Kobe won five championships, LeBron won three, although he's been to seven Finals". Let us ask ourselves if we can imagine any scenario where Michael Jordan would apply criteria to this discussion that in any way might threaten his assumed position at the top of a ranking of modern National Basketball Association players.

"Now, he may be better than that", Jordan added of James, "but Kobe won five championships".

Jordan has previously ranked Bryant ahead of James in his all-time rankings. "And not that [James] won't get five". While Jordan and Bryant are both retired from playing, James is still in his prime as a player, the dominant force of his National Basketball Association generation.

Of course, one person in particular should be delighted with Jordan's analysis, and that's Bill Russell.

When it comes to evaluating greatness, Michael Jordan - as you'd expect - puts a great deal of weight into championships.
