SHARE 34 percent of ‘NBA fans’ think Michael Jordan could beat LeBron James now

In a recent NBA poll on Public Policy Polling,NBA fans think Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time and one other thing…Michael Jordan can beat LeBron James in a one-on-one pickup game.

There’s no such division when it comes to who NBA fans think is the best player of all time. 77% pick Michael Jordan on that question to only 14% who think it’s LeBron James. In fact despite his being 52 years old, 34% of NBA fans think Jordan could beat James one on one now- as in the year 2015- to just 54% who think James would win despite being in the prime of his career.

Thirty-four percent of NBA fans think Michael Jordan, at age 52, can beat the best player in the NBA LeBron James. Fifty-four percent of NBA fans say James would win. This means 12 percent of voters weren’t sure who would win the pickup game of the century. This is crazy considering James is 22 years younger than Jordan.

Jordan has played one-on-one against NBA talent a lot younger than him. The Bulls legend played Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo in a pickup game when Mayo was still in high school.

When Jordan was 49, he played then-rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in one-on-one, and Jordan beat him. Kidd-Gilchrist said Jordan is the greatest man to ever play the game.
