Replace prime kobe with MJ on bulls 91-93 (no trolling upon entry!)
 
Do the bulls win 3 titles? Can kobe turn a team game into a one man team like mj did in the 93 finals and win?

Hell while we're at it put prime mj on the lakers do they win? Does shaq get the ball enough? And would MJ let shaq win mvp? :p

:violin:

Honestly I say everything stays the same. Kobe and Jordan played similar almost identical roles on their respective teams and they are very similar in skillset.

Bulls = 3 Peat
Lakers = 3 Peat

3peat, no question

One ring, max. But most likely none. Kobe just can't carry his team in the playoffs like Michael Jordan.

I think the results would be similar; kobe would probably pull out a 3peat with the bulls providing it was a mature kobe/one that was used to Phil's ways and I think MJ wins the 3peat and possibly the 4th.:cheers:

They may not even make it to the Finals in '92 and '93, and may not beat the Suns in '93 if they did.

And even if they did manage to win 3 (which I doubt), Kobe's performance in the playoffs wouldn't be close to Jordan's.

Don't forget we're talking prime Kobe here '05-'07 AND he has the same team MJ had. I think that equals 3 Peat. He wouldn't have to carry them he would have another top 10 player next to him along with a top 5 rebounder and defender and a G.O.A.T. coach

Don't know. Kobe would've played differently in the early 90s.

I dunno. Similar players to a degree, but Jordan was more efficient. I'm not sure how much of a role that will play.

I don't think they would've won it in 93 with Kobe though, but you'll never know.

Defiantly.

You could actually even replace Jordan with a player from that time period like Clyde Drexler or Dominique Wilkins back then and they would still 3-peat.

They definitely don't win in 93, the difference in talent is just to big. 92 and 91 are questionable, but I think he'd be able to pull off those two if he was as good as he was in 06 or healthy 07 both years.

Nope, he would be lucky if he got one. Not to downplay the Bulls supporting cast at all (they were really strong), but Jordan had some pretty epic performances in the finals and playoffs. There's just no way in my mind that Kobe could perform at the level Jordan did when everything was on the line.

I'd like to hear you explain how they'd win with Drexler or Dominique.

they dont get past the pistons/lakers/ or the knicks because kobe cant stand physical play

1 title.

the over-rating of kobe continues. kobe couldn't carry a team the way jordan could. no way in hell the bulls were winning some of those games/series if jordan had shot kobe's standard 41% in the finals.

take a look at the 92 finals:

39 points on 59%
39 points on 50%
26 points on 50%
32 points on 42%
46 points 61%
33 points on 54%

jordan's worst game in the 92 finals was better than kobe's career average in the finals. LOL. and that series went six and was actually pretty close.

kobe simply wasn't ever good enough to do the above consistently. factor in jordan's far superior defensive dominance at that stage in his career as well.

93 finals:

jordan shot over 50% in all but one game again. 44% was his worst game of the series and he averaged around 40 points for the finals that year. again...kobe could not do that. the bulls won in 6 and it was a very close series.

so i see kobe potentially winning the 91 finals (assuming he makes it there) with little to no chance of winning in 92 or 93 (probably doesn't make the finals either year).
