This Mashup With Jordan and LeBron James Is Too Funny

Jordan destroys James with laughter

This is too good to not pass on: somebody had the bright idea of mashing up the clip from “The Last Dance” where Michael Jordan laughed at Gary Payton (when Payton said he had controlled #23) with LeBron James saying he was the greatest player in the world.

The funny thing about it is, at least for people who saw Jordan’s incredible desire to beat everyone, is how small James seems when Jordan laughs. It’s almost like he’s a little kid boasting. You know how this would have ended.

We saw a Steve Kerr story today where he talked about how Jordan dominated not just the NBA courts but the minds of the NBA players. Everyone respected him but everyone, at least outside of Chicago, feared him (and a lot of them feared him too).

LeBron would have been no exception. He would have crumbled under Jordan’s ferocious will too.
