Looks like he's trying to wrestle him to the ground

They have similar post-games. Jordan's fadeaway was pretty much stuck on automatic during the 2nd threepeat. Visually their post-moves are very similar, I think Jordan got better separation when he faded away and didn't have to pump-fake 2-3 times like you see Kobe do often.

Agreed, MJs post moves were more basic but effective...with Kobe u see more foot work in action and deadly pump fakes

Exactly, and MJ had way better offensive awareness. He always made the right choice when the double came.

Not as much as you think.

There's more to playing the post than having footwork.

A. Yes Kobe has 'comparable' footwork to MJ's
B. Yes Kobe has 'comparable' moves to MJ's

But he lacks several key attributes:

Court awareness
Decision making
Consistency

And that's not even including physical features in which that alone would put MJ over the edge if they were equals (which they're not).

MJ happens to be stronger, quicker, jump higher and has bigger hands which aid him.

MJ is also technically better and more consistent, he's also more versatile since he can go to either shoulder and finish with more consistency. And of course, there's the even more obvious fact that MJ gets better separation than Kobe ever has on a more consistent basis.

I guess one of the key words here is 'consistency' because YES Kobe can and has done some of these things (so have others btw), but he isn't as consistent as Mj has, specially when we compare 2nd 3peat MJ, who was almost automatic from the post and basically lived there.

But Kobe may arguably be the best perimeter post up player since MJ, I'll give him that. He is very 'similar' to MJ in his mechanics, footwork, balance.

I hate long replies...anyway I agree and dont agree with the things u said like court awarness and decsion making, Kobe is great in those aspects, he hardly creates turn overs from the post and usually finds the open guy and as far as consistency goes, its difficult for Kobe to contantly play in the post with 7 footers who live in the post, Im sure if he had bo offensive bigs u could very well run the offense through him down low.

That falls under the decision making category. Maybe his team would be more successful if he'd actually feed his big men.

U also pointed out their physical differense, I agree that MJ is better physically but u cannot say Kobe is not fast, or strong he can and has posted way bigger players like Iggy, Lebron, Wade, Artest, Melo and Crash very effectivly. I dont understand how much stronger u need him to be.
