If Kobe Bryant can win a sixth title, he'll match Michael Jordan's count.
While the debate of who is the best player of all time is quite subjective, it's fun to mull over.
Jordan added a little fuel to the fire with his comments promoting the NBA 2K14 video game, according to the Associated Press.
How would Jordan fare playing one-on-one against players like Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Bryant?
"I don't think I would lose," said Jordan, "other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all my moves."
Bryant gave a quick response on Twitter.
Domino effect. I stole some of his..this generation stole some of mine #thecycle

Bryant also tweeted a response to the Lakers' ranking by ESPN as 12th in the Western Conference.
