I'm not a Lakers or Kobe fan, but it gets tiresome how any time Kobe is performing well people bring up MJ.

We know, MJ was better. Better at every age. It's time to just start respecting Kobe for being arguably the 2nd best SG of all-time, and show some appreciating for his level of play at the ripe age of 34.

The dude was so athletic even at that age.

He has 4 rings in that video.
I don't know what that means by ISH logic, but probably something stupid.

Cmon now, im not hating or anything, but defense on this video is simply laughable. Better defense is played today in all star games than in this video.

That Bulls teams signature was defense which this Lakers team's clearly is not. Completely different styles of play. It's not a straight up comparison.

Don't dismiss the fact that MJ took a sabbatical in 94-95, plus MJ at 34 was younger in seasons.

1997 playoffs. GOAT. Just ridiculous. What you see in this vid is like if D-Wade was a little taller and had better hops, with Kobe's skill.

Look how easily he still gets to the basket, and look how much separation he gets on his fade.

@2:13 and @2:59 looks like classic D-Wade.

When Nas - Hate Me Now starts is when the vid shows his post game, look how much faster he does everything than Kobe.

I know MJ is the GOAT and better than Kobe, but to be fair to Kobe, he played more games than MJ. He's been in the playoffs since his early years and it's very impressive to see him doing the thing he does right now.
