Michael Jordan recently made the declaration that Kobe Bryant was better than LeBron James in the great of all-time argument.

“There’s something about five that beats three. Now he may be better than that, but Kobe won five championships. LeBron won three,” MJ said, when asked during his Flight School camp in Santa Barbara, Calif. recently.

Well, Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman debated this on a recent episode of ESPN’s First Take.

While Kellerman argued for LeBron, claiming his numbers are just far superior to that of Kobe, Smith brought up Kobe’s killer instinct when it comes to closing out a game.

Watch the debate above. Who do you think is better?
