Kobe Bryant has been compared to Michael Jordan for his entire career. He even measures his own greatness to that of MJ’s. There has been a heated debate over the past few years if these two should even be compared, but nobody can dispute the fact that Kobe is the closest thing we’ll probably ever see to Jordan.
MJ even seems to think so according to Roland Lazenby, who is working on writing a book for Michael Jordan. In a series of tweets earlier this year, Roland stated:
“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.”
Whether you think Kobe doesn’t even compare, or if you think that Kobe may even be better than Jordan, no matter how you feel, the similarities in the way they walk, talk, shoot, and even chew their gum are extremely eerie.
Here is an amazing video that exemplifies those eerie similarities. If this doesn’t send chills up your spine, then I don’t know what will.
