Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley bash LeBron James for teaming with Wade and Bosh with Miami Heat
Michael Jordan wasn't just a six-time champion who ended up on the NBA's Mount Rushmore. He left a legacy of being one of the greatest competitors in professional sports history.
Jordan wanted to beat the competition every time, whether it was Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Isiah Thomas, Patrick Ewing or whomever he faced on a basketball court. So it's no surprise that the Chicago Bulls' immortal didn't exactly endorse LeBron James' stunning decision to leave Cleveland to go to Miami to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
"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,'" Jordan said after playing in a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada over the weekend. "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."
Once Jordan and the Bulls finally solved his chief nemesis, and their archrivals, Thomas' Pistons, in 1991, Jordan did beat all comers in the '90s, with the Bulls winning six titles over eight seasons.
