    Don't ever put lebron in a convo with these 2. You can talk stats all you want but stat chasing doesn't win rings james has 3 rings in NINE tries, jordan never lost in the finals and kobe was 5-2. Clutch and just downright unstoppable once they got going.

        It’s simple. The only reason MJ says Kobe deserves the comparison is not because he copied his moves or plays the same way. It’s because Kobe had the same determination and drive and Michael saw in him and it reminded him of himself. I’ve seen other athletes from Jordan’s time who said that Michael didn’t pay attention to anyone or give anyone the time of day if he felt like you weren’t worth it. I guess Kobe was. And that’s saying a lot.

                    Maybe Kobe used number 24 to be noticed being next generation of Jordan who used 23.

                                          I get it now... The next MJ was Kobe Bryant. #Classic only Kobe was able to mastered the Jordan Moves.
