Kobe is the closest one to Jordan.....and in some aspects, he's more superior

i fail to see that conclusion. How is Kobe superior to Jordan? scoring 81 points?

Quote:
If nothing else, he's a hell of a lot more interesting than D-Wade and Lebron.

i'd rather see a guy get better in a NBA game using his OWN style of play. like Iverson, Wade, and LeBron.
sure all of these guys idolized Jordan, but all of their plays aren't Jordanequse.

i'd rather see a guy get better in a NBA game using any style of play that proves to fit the best for him like Kobe, Iverson, Wade, and Lebron etc.

Whatever works for Kobe, Kobe should do. What works for Iverson, Iverson should do etc. All of those guys strive to win and further their game. I dont understand whats wrong with making plays that some people will call "jordanesque". If anything, isnt that a huge compliment to compare someones game to the greatest basketball player of all time?

BTW I heard the term "jordanesque" thrown out when Iverson was in the Finals. Wade last years Finals. And Lebron this year in the ECF. Im just failing to see your point.

God shut up about it, Kobe is not trying to be like MJ, and even if he was so what?

24 was Kobe's high school number.

I don't think it's anything related to Jordan. I guess the more important question is why he didn't choose #24 when he first entered the league if the number had so much significance for him. There's probably some siimilar reasons for choosing #8, though.

24 was his first high school number, idiot.



If you want to talk about a wanna-be Jordan, let's look at LBJ and his #23.


In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with wearing a legends number. Heck, when I played b-ball in high school everyone wanted #'s 23, 33, 34, 32, etc.


I actually think Kobe changed his # so he could turn a knew leaf after Shaq left. A new era, a new number... makes sense to me.
