Kobe Bryant vs Michael Jordan – Stats



Both Kobe and Michael have are very similar players. The type of game they play is very similar, both won their championships under the great Phil Jackson, and both are and were the best of their decade. For my entire life Michael Jordan was my favorite player and I will choose him over anyone in any toss up. Now I am not blind to real talent because Jordan is and will always be my guy. I still truly beleive he is the better basketball player. So enough with the talk, this post is meant to compare two of the games greatest in a statistical manor.

Pick of the Night

Posted by mvetack on December 15, 2009

Los Angeles Lakers -10 at Chicago Bulls

Phil Jackson helped build both of these teams dynasties but it is the Lakers that are enjoying success in the league lately. The defending champion Lakers could be the best team in the NBA right now and face off against the very underachieving Bulls. The Bulls look closer to a lottery pick than a playoff spot and have little chance of winning this game. As much as I love my Bulls, I got to go with Kobe and his Lakers even with the Bulls getting 10 points.

Lakers over Bulls – Scuttlebutt Record – (8-7)
Last pick, Uconn -1 over Kentucky, resulted in a loss with the Wildcats winning 64-61
