Default Did Kobe choose the number 24 because he thinks he's the coming of Jordan?

It's pretty obvious with his obsession to look like Mike on every move and play. From the way he walks and talks, mannerisms, his desire to play in Chicago. Mike's number 23 and Kobe chooses 24? Is this guy obsessed or what? Why he can't he just come out of the closet already?

Why is Kobe penalized because of his success and talents. Get over it, he is the best in the league.

He isn't penalized because of his talents and 'success'.

It's because he's a Class-A asswipe.

He's also a Jordan wannabe. His obsession with Jordan is well known. Phil even said so in his book. His obsession with Jordan probably started way before high school so who knows why he went from 24 to 8 but I stand behind why he chose to change from 8 to 24.

He got to pick his number in high school too . Mike was the best player in the league when Kobe was in High School.When asked why he picked it by classmates he said
" one up MJ"

If he really wanted to be like Mike so bad, why didn't he just pick 23?

Haha. Jordan whined and moaned and demanded trades and demanded old GM's be hired back because he couldn't get it done by himself? Jordan raped girls? Did he? Did Jordan elbow people and gain suspensions because of it?

I don't think so.

That would be too obvious. Kobe is too arrogant to admit he lurves Jordan but even his own coach, the man who coached the great one documented it in his book.
