Also for the stats you posted earlier.. I realize Jordan had a Higher fg% and was abetted player than Kobe, who's arguing that..

But honesty those number can be very misleading.

For instance, "games under 50% shooing" how many of those games did Kobe shoot 49% 48% 47%?

How many of those games where Kobe shot under 40% and under 30% were games from his first 2 years where he might have gone 1 for 4 and then was pulled and not put back in the game?

Not only that, but late 90's/early 00's defense/pace waaaaay different than the majority of Jordans career. But what do you expect from someone who probably never saw the majority of Jordans career?
