MICHAEL JORDAN is widely considered the greatest player in basketball history.
But the NBA and Space Jam icon has someone hot on his heels - LeBron James.
The Los Angeles Lakers star, still just 35, is already seen as the second best player of all-time with plenty of his fans claiming he has already surpassed Jordan.
Now the billionaire owner of the Charlotte Hornets, Jordan was in Europe to see his team take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
The NBA is back in Europe but after a decade of playing in London's O2 Arena, the league has set up camp at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France.
Jordan faced the global media in a rare press conference and was, inevitably, compared to LeBron.
The six-time NBA champion and two-time Olympic champion was not overly impressed with being put on the spot and although tried to be as diplomatic as possible, the fiery competitiveness that defined his career came to the surface.

Jordan said: "We play in different eras.
"He's one of the best players in the world. It's a natural tendency to compare eras to eras and it's going to continue.
"I'm a fan of his, I think he's made his mark and he will continue to do so.
"But when you start the comparisons - I think it is what it is.
"It’s just a standup measurement, I take it with a grain of salt."
