  • Michael Jordan Endorses Kobe Bryant

    Michael Jordan thinks only Kobe Bryant deserves comparisons | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports

    I remember in the 1990s, players that were deemed the next Michael Jordan: Harold Miner, Anfernee Hardaway, Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, and Vince Carter. Harold Miner was even nicknamed Baby Jordan. The funniest quote I ever read about Harold Miner was someone calling him Baby Huey. LOL!

    There are many great players in the NBA these days, most of whom have never been directly compared to Jordan. Nevertheless, His Airness says only one player comes close enough to his greatness to merit the comparison. Not surprisingly, that player is Kobe Bryant. Here's what Roland Lazenby, a great writer currently working on a Jordan book, tweeted on Sunday (via PBT): 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.

              Although I love to hate Kobe, he is an awesome player, you have to give him that.

              I did not say he compares to Jordan, but he is the most skilled player in the game, currently.

              Did I just say that??

                I still see Kobe as a rapist, but on the court, he's had a spectacular career and he's been a warrior playing out of his mind with injuries these past few seasons. You can tell he really wanted that 6th championship, too bad chances are slim unless either Bynum stays healthy all season and becomes unstoppable or change up the team roster a little bit.

                  Huge Kobe fan... but on the court, there's only one MJ. Although... it's nice to see Kobe receiving some love from the G.O.A.T.
