When Kobe played equal amount of playoff games as Jordan (179 games) he had only 4381 points to Jordans 5943...
Jordan needed only ~120 games compared to Kobes 179 get 4381 points...
Jordan needed only ~160 games compared to Kobes 213 to get Kobes current 5436 points...
Kobe needs 23+ more playoff games at his current scoring rate to match Jordans 5943 points and considering Kobe has played an average of 7 games these past two seasons in the playoffs it will take him an estimated 3-4 years (when he is 36-37 years old) to match Jordans career playoff points...
A longevity record for Kobe, thats all, which will probably be destroyed by Lebron & Durant anyways....
I know its fun as a Kobe fan to compare him to Jordan.... but i hope you understand that Jordan was just on a whole different level....
Jordan's first playoffs were when he was 21. Kobe's was when he was 18.
Jordan's playoff total from age 21-32: 4,717
Kobe's playoff total from age 21-32: 4,952
