Default One-uping Jordan again?

Quote:
Bryant will be wearing No. 10 this summer when he makes his debut in international competition for Team USA. And if you're into being the first on your block with Bryant's No. 10 in white or in blue, get out your $75. Word from USA Basketball, however, is that there are no guarantees about what number Bryant will wear next summer on the grand stage of the Olympics. Chris Paul wore No. 10 last summer, but isn't playing this summer because of foot surgery -- so Bryant was issued No. 10 for the upcoming FIBA Americas Championship. In international play, players wear Nos. 4-15. Orange County Register

Ok, not trying to hate or anything...
This is kinda funny

He switches numbers to #24 (one more than #23 for you math majors out there)
Then is issued #10 for Olympic play, one more than Jordan's #9

Its probably all coincidence, but it is pretty funny

I thought you didn't get to choose the number you want in USA Basketball.

Still a funny coincidence though. Chill out. It's not like it's unbelievable. The major Kobe fanatics are so sensitive. God forbid anything close to negative is said about him. They slit their wrists.

Is it really that big of a coincidence to the point we need a thread? What kind of responses were you expecting to get?
"Wow that is funny, I wish I had more to say about this well worthy thread but it is still funny. I mean it is like your like your thread title, he is one-uping Jordan, like wow how funny."

That would be hilarious if he really was doing that on purpose though.

If anyone tells you otherwise they are lying. It is obvious he did it for the sales.

I can't imagine it's a coincidence. I mean, c'mon, 97 other numbers to choose from in each situation, and he happens to go with the ones that follow BOTH of Jordan's numbers. Not that I care either way, I've never been a fan of Kobe the person.

What do you mean "both" of Jordan's numbers?
