Say Good Bye to the Kobe = MJ comparisons

Skip Bayless: LeBron's closer to MJ than Kobe

"In Saturday night's Game 7, Kobe basically tried to outscore the Suns by himself -- and you had the halftime feeling that he would at least make it crazy close. But the rpm was too hot, especially in Phoenix. Although Kobe had looked unstoppable in scoring 23 in the first half, Phoenix was on pace to score 120 and led by 15.


So when the Suns came out even hotter in the third quarter, Kobe basically quit. For sure, he quit shooting. He scored one more point -- on a technical-foul free throw.


Jordan never would have done that.


Deep down, Kobe is still the spoiled brat.


Nash summed up Kobe Bryant by saying: "I don't know what to expect of him. Sometimes it's a little strange."


When the blowout ended, Kobe trotted straight to the locker room. Sure, the blood had been bad between these teams. But at least he could have shaken Nash's hand, or Shawn Marion's. But no. No class."

"Kobe won't even get close [to Jordan]."

u guys r rite. its time for the kobe maichael comparison to stop. Jordan would never do anything lyk that.

what jordan would do is completly abandon his team to play baseball, being so careless that he doesnt even care

what jordan would do is threaten them that he would retire if, they let phil jackson go.

what jordan would do is threaten that he would retire if mcGrady was being traded to the bulls for some other players.

so whos fault is it that bulls suck so much? i bet u know now

A quote from "The Hoya," a Georgetown University newspaper:

"I think Kobe Bryant was staring in the mirror too long and fell in love with himself, because he seems to think he’s Michael Jordan. Memo to Kobe: You’re not. Kobe is good, no doubt, and at least he doesn’t play hoops like Jordan plays baseball, but he’s not the man."

Skip Bayless is mostly right, except for when he says kobe is a better shooter. Jordan shot 50 percent for his career while kobe shoots 45 percent. Plus i always thought jordan had the most graceful shot ever. Who created the fade? Jordan. Who stole it and half-asses it? Kobe. Jordan was a million times more athletic than kobe, alot faster, was like a race horse that worked up in a lather and just going faster and faster. Kobe is only 28 but he looks like old jordan. Jordan is the greatest. you can't just all of a sudden become jordan, from day one you have to piss on the league like he did. Something about his career is divine. Lebron will be the closet, just wish he had jordans fiery and played alot better Defense.

Jordan wouldn't abandon his team in the middle of a game you jackasses. Jordan left cuz his father died you insensitive pr*cks. MJ carried his teams throughout the playoffs. let me give some examples. 55 against the suns to give them a 3-2 lead. back to back 50 point games including "The Shot" against the cavs to adavance in the playoffs. Jordan had the flu and carried his team in a pivotal game when the series was tied 2-2(game winning 3 pointer). jordan carrying the team with 45 when pippen was out of the game with a bad back, and jordan got the game winner for sixth championship. 35 in a half for a playoff game. 63 against one of the best teams of all-time, the boston celtics. So don't tell me jordan is like kobe in terms of quitting on his team. Kobe showed no leadership, where was the never die attitude, jordan would of been in a frenzy trying to win the game. kobe just gave up. showed no optimism. The comparision is over, thank the lord. The greatest day ever, finally mostly everyone in the media is acknowledging that kobe is in fact no where near jordan. I've been saying this for years. you can't be jordan for just one game. How about 82 games and playoffs. Jordan worked his ass off every single game, never took a night off, played every practice. he is the true definition of greatness.

Why do you guys defend kobe. im not talking to the people who run this just the weird kobe fans. How can you like him, hes such a primadonna. hes a jerk. jordan is the basketball God. Lebron is already better than kobe, and lebron is already 21, and kobe is 28. Kobe should as much maturity as a two year old. just sitting there crying. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT KOBE! YOUR TEAM IS DOWN AND ITS GAME 7, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO RESPOND, BE A MAN AND FIGHT TO THE LAST SECOND OF THE GAME! Unbelievable. BY the way im the one who posted the last three, you can tell because of how i like jordan and hate kobe.

Why do you guys defend kobe. im not talking to the people who run this just the weird kobe fans. How can you like him,

how can we lyk him, hes loyal and he leads our favorite team thats y.
Let me ask u this, what about Tracy McGrady, did he stay loyal, no HE QUit in OrlanDo, asked an automatic trade. he did the same thing in Toronto. So raptors and magics fan, if u lyk him how can u. how can u say this isint an arrogant, selfish man?

what about vince carter, he even admitted to qutting during his final year, saying he didnt give it his full potentiol. how can u say kobe is such an arrogant man, making a blog about how bad he is, what about vince and tracy????

look, laker fans aint saying that kobe is better then jordan, but when it comes to arrogance, selfishness, jordan is the same thing. JOrdan fans cant say thats not true.

Kobe stays loyal to his team, unlike tracy and vince. they were whining like babies when there team sukked. they were whining.
there more lyk dobermen.

what did kobe do when his team didnt make the playoffs and people lyk u laker haters criticized him, he sukked it up and starting working his ass off in the offseason.

Now his team made it to the playofffs and went 7 games, more than any loser seeded teams.

Now VInce and Tracy wouldnt do that now would they??

thats not what leaders do.

how can kobe be a arrogant ignorant man when vince and tracy arent?

sure, kobe is not close to jordan, but no one is. Lebron James? Oh cum on, third year in nba but first year in playoffs??

N pls, Mr James has better teammates den kobe and plays in the weaker ass east.

Ok,im not tryin to put lebron down, hes a great player, i like him too, but why bash kobe in order to lift lebron?

If kobe aint a threat in the first place, y do haters bash him? N seriously, if u saes in terms of passing and rebounding, Lebron is closer to mj than kobe, i agree. But in terms of scoring, defense and killer instinct, its hands down kobe.

If u're goin to use tt above statement to sae tt kobe is a selfish player, u r jus tryin to find excuses to back up ur weak ass arguments

Thats not true about jordan!!!! Accolades came to jordan, not the other way around. jordan was not arrogant. He was genuine, unlike kobe who just seems to watch jordan speeches and models his voice and speech after jordan. Jordan was not arrogant, he wasn't smug. He just went out there and kick some major ass every single god damn night unlike kobe's sorry ass. Jordan played to win while kobe strives to be the greatest, a plateu which is now completely out of grasp for him considering his age and what has happened for his career. kobe had 16,000 pts in ten years! jordan had 29,000 in 12. And stop bringing up tracy mcgrady and vince carter, no one cares about them. and lebron does have the same team as kobe. lamar odom is a great player, and lebron has larry hughes who is hit or miss every night.

By the way, in an interview some one asked kobe something to the effect of being the greatest, kobe smiled and said it gives me chills. That means he actually thinks about that. And how about that beating of the chest, how mature.

By the way, whoever keeps writing lyk instead of like is annoying. You also don't bring up good points. In the other forum you said jordan needed another player. You're refering to pippen. Let me tell you a story that many have forgotten. When pippen first came in the league he was garbage, didn't know how to shoot. Jordan saw the potential and taught pippen how to play, sure pippen helped jordan win, but without jordan pippen would of faded away into history. Need I remind you too that during the playoffs, on many occasions that i've listed already on this blog, jordan carried the team. Flu game, 63 pts, 35 in a half in finals, "the shot," game six of finals(pippen out with back spasms), 56 against miami and so on. So don't give me jordan needed another player to win. kobe needed shaq, and not the other way around, they would of won without kobe. Phil and shaq are unstoppable, kobe and phil is like putting ketchup on oatmeal, just doesn't work. kobe's defense is overrated, 1.8 steals a game is not terrific, just average. and i don't think i've seen a lakers game where kobe shut down another guy.

Kobe could NOT carry Jordan's Jock-Strap if Kobe's life depended on it. At 28, Jordan was beginning to win championships, he was dunking on 7-footers like Patrick Ewing, and he was making a bunch average players STARS. Oh, and he never ever QUIT on his team, specially on game 7.

Kobe has never won a ring, the ones that Shaq got him don't count, he's tries way too hard to be Jordan, which he will never be, he doesn't know how to milk good talent like Lamar Odom, and every player that has left the Lakers hates his ass.

In fact, notice how NONE of the Lakers came to Kobe's defense when Raja Bell put Kobe in his place. Oh, if Kobe were a man, he would have gotten up and charged Raja, Jordan was not only a million times better, but he was respected by everyone.

Just mentioning Kobe and Jordan on the same sentence is an insult to Jordan.

All of you Kobe Lovers go read what half of ESPN is saying about Kobe. Not only are they saying that he's a quitter, but also that he must have mental issues to quit on his team. Can you imagine anyone writing that about Jordan? no way.

Kobe's record speaks for itself. He had his fame riding Shaq's cape, but now that he chased Shaq out of LA, he's a mere scorer, which is different than being a winner.

Kobe does not suck, but he's soooo overrated, it's not even funny.

Who are you again? and what makes you qualified to judge the best player in a sport you couldnt play in during the special olympics? Kobe CARRIED a team into the playoffs that nobody else could have. And the suns won that series, regardless of how Kobe played. Comparing MJ to anyone is just dumb, btw, so dont do it; they are different players in different situations. When kobe gets a Pippen to play with, THEN start making comparisons.

And anyone saying lebron is better than kobe is an idiot and should try watching some basketball. Kobe has 3 rings, shoots a higher%, and PLAYS DEFENSE! in fact, he's been first and second team all-defense several times. Lebron has made it to the playoffs ONCE, and with a much better team than kobe has.

Oh, and remind me when the last time Lebron scored 81? Yeah, and then he woke up.

how much did lebron score in the 2nd half of game 1 vs pistons?? Y didnt anyone bash him on tt? Oh yeah, i know y cos hes trying to play team ball when passing whereas kobe is trying to quit when hes passing, rite?

Cum on, enough of bullshit, lebron is good but not great, and is not even on par wif kobe.

N yeah i noe he scores 30pts, grab 14 rebs 7 dimes, but pls, 2nd half was garbage time for them. U tink the pistons will care? More importantly, like wat asorto and teamplayer implies, winning is the most important. Did cavs win? No, period!

Jordan left cuz his father died you insensitive pr*cks.

His father was murdered and, in my opinion, I bet it was because of an upaid betting debt that Jordan owed big time. Jordan probably sold his dad's soul and Jordan has to live with that. Jordan is the worst son of all. I would never leave my father to murderers who I would owe money to. I doubt Kobe would either. And one more time. Jordan is not the greatest. He is just one of the greatest. If there is a greatest it would be Bill Russell with 11 rings and 8 straight. Jordan didnt even come close to 11 rings and he gave up on his team to play baseball for two seasons which more than likely would have given them 8 straight. Nice going Jordan to give up on the Bulls. I can't respect that.

WOW, are you on crack dude? we're talking about facts such as the fact that Kobe has never won a championship ever since Shaq left, etc etc, and YOU are talking about speculations. How do you know that Jordan's dad was murdered b/c of unpaid gambling debts by Jordan? (what you're saying is called, talking out of your ass).

And even if it were true, are so cold blooded that you actually think that your father's death is not a reason to stop playing b-ball? are you kidding me? the point of the previous anonymous' posting is not that what led Jordan to retire, it's the fact that his father's death affected him so much that he stop playing, but he did it after the end of the season, NOT during an elimination game.

Kobe stop playing Ball in the 2nd half of game 7, and it sure wasn't b/c there was a death in his family.

If you're gonna argue something at least argue with real facts. Sure, other players have more rings that Jordan, that's a good fact, but you can't bust on the man b/c his father died (the cause of his death is irrelevant).

Oh, and by the way, given how many gazzzillions of dollars Jordan has, do you really thing that he can't afford to pay his gambling debts? are you serious dude, get real.

O little did u know that jordan was exacctly like kobe in his early years. he was exactly like kobe. it was until he realized that he cant win it by himself. And dont u think thats not true. its 100 percent true.

jordan did want to be the best. he did had an attitude. u guys dont realize that?

how can u prove that. i never saw shaq without a big important player. shaq is nothin when he doesnt have anyone with him.

dont u say that jordan didnt need pippen. u stupid ass if it wasnt for pippen, he would have never won.

pippen deserves as much credit as jordan. when jordan left the team, everybody thought that the bulls were over. without jordan, pippen would have been nothin? yea right. the season when they lost jordan, pippen carried the team to 55 wins u stupid. they went all the way to the conference finals. where was the all mighty jordan. o, he was stinkin in the minor league baseball league, beggin his ass to forgive him for leavin. im suprised they did let him back.
