Michael Jordan currently views Kobe Bryant as having the more successful career to this point than LeBron James.
"If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice," Jordan, now owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, told NBATV’s Ahmad Rashad, "but five beats one every time I look at it."
Bryant has won five championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, with James winning his first NBA title with the Miami Heat last June.
"And not that he won't get five," Jordan said of James. "He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one."
