    Kobe vs Jordan

    I'm not much of a basketball fan, but I found this video to be pretty cool:

    Kobe Bryant, because he is very smart and very good, plays a lot like Michael Jordan (VIDEO) | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports

    It would be cool if they could put the plays side by side, they seem so similar to each other.

    The author claims he is a Bulls Fan but I have my doubts. The video is clearly made by a Laker Fan and the author of the article seems to honk way too much for Kobe. The reason I say this is because there is absolutely no mention of the advanced stats in his article.

    Jordan shot a much better % for his career than Kobe did from 3. And when you look at the advanced stats you see that Jordan clearly had the better all-around game. Jordan grabbed more rebounds, dished a higher % of assists and did so using a higher % of the offense. The most amazing thing about Jordan was that he had an amazing efficiency while using a third of his team's possessions. You knew Jordan was gonna have the ball and he still made you pay.

    Kobe is good, but he is no Jordan

    I feel like a lot of people who have or will play in the NBA have made 25 plays in their career that look very similar to Jordan.

    I don't know why they always have to find "the next MJ." There will always only be one Michael Jordan...period.

    They were always trying to find the next Gretzky too... Lemieux, lindros, Crosby... It has to be tough being the next Jordan or Gretzky...

    Re: Kobe vs Jordan

    If I was a great basketball player I would hate to be compared to Jordan, why can't they just be Kobe or Lebron. Let them be individuals and great on their own merit
