One of the most fierce debates amongst NBA fans revolves around two of the greatest to ever play the game, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Though most would concede that Kobe is the closest thing anyone has seen to matching Jordan, things get very heated when people say that Kobe is equal to or even better than MJ.

Many have weighed in on this debate and the latest to do so is former Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas who broke down the comparison in a lengthy description on his Instagram page.

What will Kobe Bryant make this season? Find out here!

According to Arenas, Kobe wasn’t quite as physically gifted as Jordan. Arenas then uses this as a way to commend Kobe for his outstanding work ethic saying that the fact that Kobe has made it as close as he has to Jordan is proof that no one works harder. In the end, Arenas proclaims Jordan ‘the G.O.A.T.’ while Kobe is ‘the G.O.A.T. of Hardwork.’

While Arenas gives the edge to Jordan in the head-to-head comparison, this is a debate that will continue to rage on for a very long time.
