    • He was great but he wasn't going to out-do MJ. He wasn't a quick or as athletic or as efficient and not the defender MJ was either.

  • Captain Jack once said the only difference between me and kobe is kobe got Ring's. He then that next game against Kobe dropped 31 on his head and hit 6 3s.😂😂. That was when he played for the bobcats.

  • one thing i noticed when players met MJ for the first time. from Tmac to KG, Lebron, AI. the way they described it was like they saw Jesus or something because they all said he had that aura, glow or something. that was interesting

  • Having T-Mac on reminded me how stacked the SG position was after MJ retired in 98. T Mac, Kobe, Ray, Vince, the Truth, my goddddd 90s b ball was awesome but 2000s b ball was no joke as well.

    • @Chiggsy Nah, not THAT much. Not to take anything away from Durant but I'll still take a 6'6" MJ, a 6'8" Bird because of their skill, IQ and competitive drive that can more than make up for a few inches.

    • spiidey1 Kobe won without Shaq. Pau was 0-12 in the play offs before playing with Kobe. He made 3 straight finals without Shaq. Won back to back. Tmac played with Yao Ming. A beast center, hall of famer. Kobe is definitely better than Tmac.

    • @young city Nah. Kobe was lucky to play with prime Shaq. Meanwhile Tmac played with prime Andrew Declerq.

    • ​@SanAntoBalla MJ could still give it back too though. In 1 game, he outscored TMac as he had 32/6/8 and 1 turnover while TMac had 31/6/5 with 4 turnovers. >>>

      jtremaine23jtremaine233 ай мурун
    • @Jhustine Provido That's because MJ got injured. He was the leading MVP candidate at the All star break before the injuries came. And that's after sitting out 3 full years.

    • This is absurd, McGrady was taking a 1,000 shots like kobe was in 2006. Kobe was luckier for playing for the lakers being coached by jackson playing with shaq. Kobe is the alpha though, he had more heart. If they were a duo kobe would've been the leader lol. Kobe was damn near running the team when they had shaq, I think jackson just wouldn't allow him to completely be the leader.
