Jordan thinks Bryant deserves to be compared to him more than any other player

Published on January 18, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   1 Comment

Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever to set face on this planet. A lot of people try to compare other star players to Jordan, and most don’t belong in his league. There is no player currently that has Jordan’s talent but if there have to be one player it’s a no brainer.

That player is Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. LeBron James is not even close to Jordan league.

Roland Lazenby is one of the best basketball writers out there. Now he is working on a book about Jordan and has spoken to him. Jordan thinks Bryant deserves to be compared to him more than any other player out there. Lazenby tweeted some interesting tweets lately.

Kobe’s ultimate competition is MJ. That’s why MJ watches him. MJ made people think what he was doing wasn’t human. Ditto the Kobester.

I never said Kobe was better than MJ. MJ just told me Kobe’s the only one to have done the work, to deserve comparison.

I agree with Jordan; Bryant is the only player than you can compare to him. They both have the rings and that fire in their eyes. Both want the ball at the end of the games, they have both hit their share of clutch shots. Both players are super competitive and will do whatever it takes to win.

That being said Jordan is ten times better than Bryant, but just for now you should still enjoy watching Bryant because he is one of the all the time greats.  Jordan was a better overall player that had better skills.
