    Jordan vs. Kobe

    And no not for who is better. For this play. Michael's play is always talked about as one of the greats of all time. Last night Kobe made a play that was down right disgusting. Over and around Dwight Howard none the less.

    Reminded me of MJ's because they both switched hands mid air

    Which one is your pick for the coolest play? FYI Kobe's takes place at the 55 second mark

    Kobe's shot would've been more impressive if he hadn't traveled before it.

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    His pass to Gasol on the break in Game 4 was much better than that play.

    He took like 3 or 4 steps before he shot it.

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    Try counting guys. He dribbled and than took 2 steps. It's clear as day that he didn't travel. Back to the question. Vote on which one was better.

    yeah, and I'm sure he never commits a foul...


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    It's hard to tell on YouTube, but I'm pretty sure he took four steps there. Plus he was pushing off on Lee.

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    kobe's was way more difficult....jordan's looked cool, but since nobody was even contesting the shot i never understand why everyone thinks that shot is so spectacular.

    Wow the Laker hate is strong as ever! I get a comment on how Kobe never commits a foul (even though that was never even mentioned) and how he pushes off.

    All this when I am just asking about which play people like better. Wow!

    FYI, AIT. You can see in the second clip of the play that Kobe picks up the dribble and takes 2 steps

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    Jordan was better....then again, watching him on tv while I was a youngster may have influenced my vote.

    Whenever I watch Kobe play, I wonder if he was guilty of those rape allegations years ago. Great basketball player, just hard for me to give him much respect.

    Yeah that play is better than both for sure. Did you see Lamar Odom do his own version of that last night? Not as great as Dr. J's but it was still pretty sweet

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    Yes, Jordan never pushed off. Think the infamous shot he made against Utah.

    Re: Jordan vs. Kobe

    i bet if you asked jordan himself he could come up with several hundred more difficult shots he hit in his career.
