I was too young to watch Michael Jordan but in that video he reminds me a lot of prime Kobe. Didn't think he can do those moves like Kobe.
The Difference is That Whatever Move Kobe Does Jordan Did it Quicker, Faster, Stronger, More Potent, More Agil, More Hang Time. Jordan was Also A Lot Stronger Physically and a Better Post Player and Mid Range Shooter than Kobe. Kobe Was a Better Better Pure Shooter and Far Range Shooter but Jordan did Everything Else Better. Not to Mention Jordan was a TRUE Defensive Force (thanks to his athletic ability) with a Very Low DRT (Top 10 for acouple of seasons and right there with Big Men) and Top 30 something in DWS...unlike Kobe.
At 5:56 ....Kobe Could Never Make That Acrobatic Move

The move he does against the Lakers in the Finals of 1991 (6:56), I never understood why he changed hands. Was it because he expected somebody to jump? Did he want to show off? Did he find it easier to shoot with his left hand?
