    I never watched Jordan play, but man, after seeing this, there's no way Kobe's his equal. Look at the man JUMP! His shots seem to be even crazier too. Jordan seems to be easily able to sink shots while looking the other way.

    I don't think I'm well placed to comment on basketball, but some players are good, others are class, some are legends. And ability alone does not make you a legend.

    Not only was he freakishly athletic,

    And the greatest offensive force the world of basketball has ever seen, but he was also one of the greatest defensive players.

    Its not fair to compare Kobe, or anybody to MJ, not even LeBron (he is still young but he is no where near where MJ was when he was the same age). There is a reason why he is labeled as the GOAT.

    I think sometimes people forget over time how great some athletes were. I was watching some old highlights of Larry Bird recently. Man, I had almost forgotten how great he was. I wouldn't even put Kobe in his class never mind Jordan who was the greatest of all time.

    You should have seen Oscar Robertson, The Big O, play.
