There’s really no arguing that Michael Jordan is the greatest of all-time. None. And if you even try to talk down the baddest man that ever held a basketball, I’m not even hearing you. Not at all. That all said, the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant is right up there with Jordan when it comes to straight-up swag on the court. Arguably, he’s the second-greatest shooting guard ever and his five rings helps make that argument.
It’s no secret that Kobe modeled his game after Air, and even if Bryant would never say it, there is some irrefutable evidence that Kobe did. And you know what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with trying to be like the G.O.A.T., especially when it comes to that killer instinct Jordan had, trying to punish the opposing team like they stole money from his mom.
In any case, if you want to see some identical plays between these two players, peep the video below and get ready to nod your head and smile at the similarities.
Props to 2012Mamba on YouTube for putting that together because as a dude old enough to have seen both Jordan and Kobe in their primes, the video above is something special. No question!
