I think this is the first time anyone asked...

but, no, he is not.

At least not to this point in his career. He is only 32, though, and probably has several more years left. Still, it is highly doubtful that he can surpass all of MJ's accomplishments.

As good a player? Maybe.

Will he ever have MJs accompishments? No.

I agree. He can't have MJ's accomplishments, as those are MJ's, not Kobe's. Thou shalt not steal other's accomplishments is the 11th commandment.

However, Kobe still can have his own accomplishments. Ones MJ can't have, see my reasoning above.

Closest to mj and as good as him are 2 different things. Bird and Magic weren't anything like mj but I have them both better than Kobe. Kobe's style of play is the closest to mj though.
