Top 10 NBA Players of All Time That Would Have the Best Chance of Defeating Michael JordanBronson These players are not better than Jordan. But they might be able to have a chance.
The Top Ten
The only player in the history of the game that could only scratch the surface of the moves that Michael Jordan had. - Bronson
I think possible cause you're the SECond best player in the NBA! And last of all...YOUR TALL
Kobe incorporated the same moves that Jordan had. Examples such as the fadeaway, pull up jumper, and even the little shimmy that mike did. He definitely has the best chance of beating MJ, he's like a clone of him
For defating MJ. You have to have a great mentality. Kobe Bryant is the only way. - caqatay20V 3 Comments
LeBron only has a chance cause of his athleticism and strength. Other than that, Michael would crush him
James should be ahead KD he is the worst player I hate him LeBron is the best player on the planet and arguably the best player all-time - 2storm
I see Durant today, and he is a beast. LeBron played well in the finals, but Durant is easily the better player even right now, in terms of defense and offense. - BronsonV 1 Comment
He was his teammate no one knows his weaknesses better
Actually MJ isn't a great shooter & is a bit of a ballhog.But he's still the goatV 1 Comment
A chance if they played a 100 times.durant may win once but that's if Jordan wasn't feeling well and was injured
KD has length and shooting range over MJ. He would pull up from 30 with a hand in his face all day.
KD is a better scorer than Kobe and he has 4 inches on MJ, I don't care how good MJ is offensively, he can't block those 30 foot jumpers from KDV 1 Comment
What... How is this even an option... Jordan faced Clyde.. they wanted to call it a matchup, but he got humiliated. Would not even have a god damn chance.
He is better than everybody on here
I will admit that Wilt Chamberlain, as well as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell are possibly in the top 5 players of all time, but no center will come close to beating Michael Jordan in a one on one match. - Bronson
Are you kidding me? Of course Wilt could defend Jordan. Wilt was exceptionally athletic which is uncharacteristic of a 7 ft big man. He could jump so high, run really fast, and push everyone out of his way. He would not let MJ shoot at all. There's an old story that Wilt once showed up to a gym in UCLA way after retirement to play a pickup game with Magic, Worthy, and Scott and simply said "There will be no more layups in this gym", as as a result he blocked every shot!
Most unstoppable force the nba has ever seen. Only player I can see containing him is maybe Dennis Rodman.V 2 Comments
Because the both trash talk and have big ego's
This list is reversed, it should be "who would have the best chance to defeat Kareem or Wilt? "
The truth is nobody else would have a chance against those two monsters, neither Russell's defense nor LeBron's offense would even be in the running.
Even a precision 3-point bomber like Curry would miss a shot at some point, and then with "winner's outs" rules, he would probably never touch the ball again.
He will be like theirs a swish here a swish there a swish everywhereV 1 Comment
Elgin Baylor had the highest-ever season scoring average by somebody not named Wilt Chamberlain.
