Yochi1up

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

LeBron has a substantial size advantage, this would be a good matchup.

Your very good at BASKETball dude?

#1 Michael Jordan!

How could anyone beat a master of NBA it is extremely hard to have broken sooo many records such as getting 60 points in a basketball game

2 Wilt Chamberlain Wilt Chamberlain Wilton Norman "Wilt" Chamberlain was an American basketball player . He was born on August 21, 1936 in Philadelphia and died on October 12, 1999 in Los Angeles due to heart failure . ...read more.

Wilt has a 6-inch height advantage and an 8-inch wingspan advantage, plus a huge strength advantage.
Assuming the referees allow Wilt to take 4 steps when driving to the basket like they do for LeBron, the matchup would end early, as LeBron would be badly injured.

How many times did LeBron have 60 points and 40 rebounds in a single game? Wilt did it 6 different times, topped by a 78 point, 43 rebound game.

Wilt the Stilt gonna beat him one on one

3 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.

And your 100 times better than LeBron James!

Kobe is the beast.He is fundamentally stronger than lebron

Kobe is better than mj

4 Kevin Durant Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. He was MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals.

Everyone knows that he's a scoring machine but they underrate his defense. He gets plenty of blocks and can shut down players with his massive wingspan.

What! He already dominated James in the 2017 NBA finials

They are rivals but friends too. - EpicJake

Nice,man.

5 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

Stephen is the goat of 2014-I don't know

Beating lebron like nothing

He can beat lebron easily

10 Magic Johnson Magic Johnson Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. is a retired American professional basketball player who played point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association for 13 seasons.

Gotta pick LeBron in this faceoff, its just not what Magic does best. HOWEVER in a 2-on-2 game with evenly-matched teammates, whatever team has Magic on it is going to win easily.

The Contenders

20 Bill Walton

Walton was great for a very brief period before his body gave out, and perhaps the only other big man besides Tim Duncan to be so fundamentally sound, due to Walton's playing for 4 years under legendary coach John Wooden. Walton was plagued with injuries throughout his career, he probably could not withstand LeBron's punishment.
