Kobe Bryant vs. Michael Jordan. The debate will rage on for quite sometime. I know people love to throw LeBron James in the mix but truthfully, a better comparison for him would be Magic Johnson. Through the wonders of modern technology, we get to examine how close Kobe is to his Airness.
Check out this video of Jordan and the Black Mamba executing almost identical plays. For some, it will fuel the thought process that Kobe simply mimics Jordan. I say to that, what player growing up in his era didn’t. Doesn’t mean they were successful at it and it absolutely doesn’t mean that it leads to the accomplishments Kobe has made.
But it’s still fun to watch.
