Michael Jordan: No Way I Would Have Called Bird, Magic

New, comments

Earlier this week, Charles Barkley said LeBron James' decision to leave Cleveland for Miami was proof that he would never live up to Michael Jordan's legacy.  Sunday, Jordan himself finally chimed in and basically echoed that same sentiment.

"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 finishing tied for 22nd in the American Century Championship golf tournament in Stateline, Nev. "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 did his best to reel things in at the end there but consider his opinion stated.  Add that to the top of the complaint pile, LeBron.
