Michael Jordan Takes Shots At “King James”… Would Never Have Called Up His Competitors To Build Team

Michael Jordan and Lebron James

His Airness Michael Jordan recently gave his opinion on Lebron James’ decision to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and it wasn’t exactly positive. Words from the NBA great and flicks of King James’ vacay when you …

In an interview after playing in a charity golf event in Nevada, Jordan questioned LeBron James’ decision to join the Miami Heat after seven years in Cleveland.

“There’s no way, with hindsight, I would’ve ever called up Larry, called up Magic and said, ‘Hey, look, let’s get together and play on one team. But that’s … things are different. I can’t say that’s a bad thing. It’s an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys.”

Jordan won six titles with the Chicago Bulls, before moving on to play for the Wizards and work in their front office. He now is the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

His good friend and fellow former NBA great, Charles Barkley, bashed the move earlier in the week to the Arizona Republic.

“Mike and I are in 100 percent agreement on this. If you’re the two-time defending NBA MVP, you don’t leave anywhere. They come to you. That’s ridiculous. I like LeBron. He’s a great player. But I don’t think in the history of sports you can find a two-time defending MVP leaving to go play with other people.”

We think it’s hilarious that Jordan said he’d never have done it, but then tried to neutralize the comment by saying “I can’t say that’s a bad thing” while Charles made sure to let the world know that Mike agrees with him that Lebron’s move was “ridiculous”.

Clearly the NBA vets hold a different philosophy than BronBron and his Heatmates…

Only time will tell who is right…

In the meantime, Lebron doesn’t seem to be trippin’ off all this talk. Check out some shots of him and his girl Savannah cold chillin’ in the Bahamas this weekend:

    Michael was great “in his day”. Charles was OK, I guess. But they should let LeBron find his own way, not what “they would have done”. They don’t know what motivated him to leave. There were probably other factors involved. LeBron and Savannah make a nice couple too.

  • why

    I totally agree with Michael.
    @New Day
    If Charles was ok and Michael was just great I would hate to see what you consider good. These guys where athletes, not crybabies

    MJ need to stop foolin himself…he gotta realize if he didn’t have scotty pippen to play alongside him all those years, he would probably have left after the first three years on the bulls. I’m shocked lebron stayed as long as he did with that sorry azz team master Gilbert left him with.

  • There iit is!!!!


  • serene

    I respect bron bron’s decision cuz it was his right…but it doesn’t mean folks can’t critique the decision

    I agree with your airness. I think it would of been better for bronie to win a ring in cleveland…it would be better for his legacy. If he wins with miami…to me its like…he better win with all those guys around him. But I concur with mike and the vets.

  • Man, I just don't care™

    Straight from the REAL KING’S mouth! LeBron gave up! Pure and simple.

    It’s funny, LeBron WORSHIPS this man and Jordan couldn’t think LeBron could be more overrated than he already is.

    LeBron wanted to not only give up his number 23, but get every other player with the number 23 to give it up “in honor” of Jordan.

    Yet, Jordan stated this week that Kobe is better than him (which is true).

  • There iit is!!!!
