Top 10 NBA Players of All Time That Would Have the Best Chance of Defeating Michael JordanThese 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
Bro where Javale? - 9713524179
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. - Bronson
GOAT...everyone says that lebron is only better than mj for stats...
Lebron should be 1st
Not voting for him just heres a funny nickname for him... Kraft Dinner, Kevin Durant. Same initials. Thank me later
A chance if they played a 100 times.durant may win once but that's if Jordan wasn't feeling well and was injured
Jordan would beat KD like I beat my five year old nephew
KD has length and shooting range over MJ. He would pull up from 30 with a hand in his face all day.
Could - Munknjet
He should be in the top 3 at least
Yup but number 2
He don't play no defense y he even heer - 9713524179
He was his teammate no one knows his weaknesses better
Mj has no weakness
Actually MJ isn't a great shooter & is a bit of a ballhog.But he's still the goat
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.
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.
Way back in the day, Kareem played against Julius Erving in a charity one-on-one match.
It was not even close; Kareem just backed Dr. J down, and skyhooked over him every time, and I think the final score was 22-6.
Yes MJ was perhaps a tiny bit better than Dr. J, but only just a little, and certainly not enough to overcome such an advantage.
A legitimate 7-foot plus monster who can play is in a different league.
Remember that most of the "7-footers" in MJ's time were really only 6-9 to 6-11 due to the change in how players are measured.
Kareem or Wilt would destroy Jordan in short order, and Russell might possibly be able to defend him well enough to eke out a win.
Yeah your a real idiot seriously Kareem is good but guess what a they are too slow plus Michael has a better shot then Julius and Kareem isn't a defender so don't go around saying stuff you don't know a thing about - 2storm
Kareem will beat KD and Wilt - 2storm
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 is better than everybody on here
Boi he NICE!
He literally did stop Jordan until 1991 - 9713524179
He did beat Jordan from 1988-1990 - BUETBU91
He is the most dominant player the NBA will ever see.
He beat Jordan in the late 80's in the playoffs. - BUETBU91
Because the both trash talk and have big ego's
He did beat Jordan in the late 80's in the playoffs. - BUETBU91
He is awesome.
He will be like theirs a swish here a swish there a swish everywhere
Vote for kyrie
The greatest team player in history- look at the NBA titles(Boston won when he started to play) but still scored well, rebounds (a lot), had assists(checkout centers do not have assists except of Russell.},bottom line a champiuon-Boston and USF.
Elgin Baylor had the highest-ever season scoring average by somebody not named Wilt Chamberlain.
Oscar has a good chance - 2storm
If punching is allowed, all of the other players would simply run away when they saw Wilt Chamberlain coming. If Metta World Peace was too stupid to take off with them, all of the other players would return later to attend his funeral.
Ron Artest would win because he would punch Jordan in the stands, "Extreme Rules Match"
One of the best centers ever and he isn't on the list? - BUETBU91
