NBA: Charlotte Bobcats-Press Conference

Four-and-a-half years and two more LeBron James championships haven’t changed Michael Jordan’s opinion that Kobe Bryant was better than James. In February 2013, Jordan told NBA TV that Bryant’s five championship rings put him above James, who had one at that time. Speaking at his Flight School in Santa Barbara, California, on Monday, Jordan said that logic still stands.

“Would I rank LeBron over Kobe? In terms of best of all time? No,” he said, in response to a question from a camper. “There’s something about five that beats three. … Kobe won five championships. LeBron won three — although he’s been to seven [consecutive] Finals,” Jordan said.
