Bro stop bringing up Jordans sidekick please. Kobe Bryant is the best basketball player on this earth we have today. We've never said that about Scottie so you really should think about what your arguing about.
I think we are all getting out of subject here. In 2001 Kobe Bryant wasn't even a top ten player let alone the best player on earth.
well itd be a great series but bulls are just too good chicago in 6 or 7 in a great series. Kobe and Shaq is of course the best duo of all time history in basketball but bulls had something lakers never had Michael Jordan
bro when shaq or pippen score 81 points , when shaq or pippen score 50 plus points 5-6 games in a row...... then we can compare them to Kobe. Bro if you dont agree that Kobe is the best player in the league right now..... then You obviously dont know nun about the league
What kind of idiot talks like this? Bro, bro, bro. What are you Cuban? Idiot.
Some serious BS being spouted in this thread. It would be a close close series. The 2001 lakers were a machine in the playoffs and Kobe was a MANSTER all through the playoffs until we played the sixers and he turned his game down and smartly so to increase shaq's touches. The 1996 Bulls had everything apart from shaq. I would possibly sacrifice the next 5 years of NBA finals just to watch this series.
PS.People who think Pippen was a better player then the 2001 Kobe get the fuck outta here. Anyone who has actually watched the game for longer then 5 years, played it and loves it should know Kobe is the better player. Pippen was amazing but seriously a rebound and an assist doesn't equate to 8 points or whatever Kobe was giving you at that point and that's purely from a statistical perspective. Watch the game kids.
That's a tough one ... though I still take Jordan to win out. I can't bet against him. No way, no how. Guy's insane. He would drive himself up the wall to prove he was better then the "new guy" aka KB8.
Yup. And Jordan was still having his way w/ folks that series. And was still probably the best player in the game, and he didn't even have his swag back. He dunked on Shaq two or three times during that series. Check this ...
Jordan was NEVER intimidated by Shaq. In fact, I felt the complete opposite. I think Shaq was intimidated by MJ. Though he'd never admit it. Shaq wasn't crowned MDE until he played against the downfall of the Center era. Shaq routinely got *****ed by Hakeem when they went at it back in the day. So no way in hell is Shaq MDE, when Olajawoun was the better player. Let alone MJ.
