Because they're losers in real life and need to live their lives through Jordan. I'd understand if they said that Kobe's not better than Jordan but as of right now he's the closest one, but instead they launch mostly insane diatribes as to why they personally dislike Kobe.
Every time someone brings something up about Kobe they all rush full speed to make sure they talk him down. I don't get it, if MJ is better than Kobe than why do you all try to downplay Kobe whenever you can?
why ask this on ISH....do you see wut's being posted today and yesterday? lol
