Jordan: I could have taken LeBron

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michael Jordan believes he could have beaten LeBron James in a game of one-on-one when he was in his prime.

He’s not sure about Kobe Bryant.

In a video promoting the “NBA 2K14″ video game that is being released Tuesday, Jordan said there’s a long list of players he would’ve liked to have played one-on-one — Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Bryant and James, who is on the cover of this year’s game.

“I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan says in the video, before smiling and adding, “other than to Kobe Bryant, because he steals all of my moves.”

Jordan also said the game was much more physical when he played than it is today.

“You go in with the understanding of ‘I’m going to get hit. I’m going to pay the price,’” he said. “But that’s part of the game. I’m not going to be afraid to go inside. Those are the types of things that these kids don’t even have a clue of how we had to grow up and how we had to play.”

Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and considered by many the greatest player ever, said he only talked trash to his friends.

“I didn’t talk trash to people I didn’t know,” he said.

Jordan has had a sponsorship deal with 2K Sports since 2011, when he first appeared on the cover of the popular game.

The 50-year-old Jordan, who was a five-time league MVP, also shared the cover in 2012 with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.

#STUDIOLIFE | The Art of Composing VI [@BRYAN_M_COX x @TREYSHOTYA]

In this clip I take a sound I found in Cyclop and build a track. Merging some of my signature sounds with new packs, I create a fun, upbeat, futuristic, pop joint (sounding like an A&R there, LOL.) Anyhow… Enjoy. @_SCMG_’s Riss & Ry are featured in this clip.
