Lakers News: Michael Jordan Says Kobe Deserves Comparisons

Michael Jordan is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player to have ever lived and there have been numerous players who have been claimed the so-called “Next Jordan.” However, Roland Lazenby spoke to Jordan while working on his book, and asked him about being compared to players.

Roland Lazenby Twitter: “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.”

Michael Jordan has racked up six championships in his career and Kobe Bryant already has five with a few years left ahead of him. Although Jordan dominated the league unlike anyone else, Kobe matches and could possibly even beat Jordan in terms of toughness and a passion to win.

Both of these players were the faces of the NBA and no doubt the best of their generations. No one may ever surpass Jordan as the best player, but no one has come closer thus far than Kobe Bryant.
