In a new poll, ESPN gave NBA fans 17 categories . . . covering both on- and off-the-court stuff . . . and MJ beat LeBron in EVERY SINGLE ONE.

For example, when asked who has the better sneaker for fashion, 79% chose Jordan, 21% for LeBron.  For the better sneaker to BALL in, 77% went with Jordan, 23% sided with LeBron.

The fans’ pick “for a game-winning shot” would be Jordan 76% to 24% . . . the “better player overall” was Jordan 73% to 27% . . . who’d win “one-on-one to 21” was MJ 67% to 33% . . . and the top pick to “start a team” is MJ 66% to 34%.

Somewhat surprisingly, fans would even prefer Michael to “have a drink with,” 65% to 35% . . . as well as positive impact off the court, 62% to 38%.

The tightest race was in the “who you’d trust to pass you the ball” category . . . which makes sense because LeBron can be a great passer.  But MJ still won that one 57% to 43%.

And another win for MJ, the Last Dance documentary on ESPN was the highest rated doc ever on the channel.
