Michael Jordan still ranks Kobe Bryant ahead of LeBron James

  Michael Jordan still ranks Kobe Bryant ahead of LeBron James Michael Jordan was asked if LeBron James has passed Kobe Bryant among the all-time greatest players in NBA history. Jordan’s simple answer? “No.” Jordan was speaking at his Flight School Camp in Santa Barbara, Calif., where he was asked by a camper if he thought James ranked ahead of Bryant all time. His answer cut straight to the point.“Would I rank LeBron over Kobe, best of all time? No. It’s something about five that beats three. Now he (James) might be mad with me now but Kobe won five championships.

Good on Lonzo for saying what he believed rather than appeasing Lakers fans with a PR answer.

Now, No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz has those same qualities. To a degree, he's an even better scorer and shooter than Ball, and he's probably a more skilled pick-and-roll ball-handler.The difference between the two top picks comes on the defensive end of the floor. Both have the physical tools to become phenomenal defenders at the point guard position. They're tall, long, and move exceptionally well from side-to-side.One player is actually engaged on defense, however, while the other looks completely disinterested. Can you guess which is which?Here's a hint — the lackadaisical defender's team went 9-22 during the 2016-17 college basketball season and spent the NCAA Tournament watching the games from the couch.Fultz showed up when Washington played UCLA, outperforming Ball in that one game. But one game doesn't make an NBA career, and the fact that Fultz only wanted to get up for the biggest competition is a glaring mark against the first pick.
