However one feels about the Kobe vs MJ discussion, Kobe does have a point here. MJ and Kobe played the majority of their respective careers under vastly different circumstances.

What's wrong with comparing apples to oranges?

Kobe acts like playing with Shaq was a burden on him?
Bitch he carried you for 3 titles.

If MJ played with Shaq there would be no comparison between Kobe and MJ. Kobe would have maybe 1 or 2 rings while MJ would have atleast 7.

I never get that saying because people compare them all the time when it comes to a better fruit.

An apple's an apple and an orange is an orange. Kobe's a shooting guard and Michael was a shooting guard. Good one Kobe.

I doubt I'd be too offended if someone implied Michael Jordan was better than me.

What point is he trying to make with Shaq, exactly? If he didn't play with Shaq he'd have 2 rings and even less people would compare him with MJ.

And Kobe is a fcuking idiot for saying the comparisons are apples to oranges, they are as fcuking close to apples to apples as you can get.

- Same height (6'6")
- Same position (SG)
- Stacked teams (Pippen/Shaq)
- Same HC (Phil Jackson)

The only difference is that Kobe wasn't the best player on his stacked team, where Jordan was... And Michael would still be the best player if Shaq was his teammate.

I don't understand what kobe is getting at...if jordan had had a shaq-like player from 87-89 he would have 3 more rings most likely. Jordan is in a totally different league to kobe. (not that that's disrespcting kobe, it's just how great jordan was).

Maybe you were born in 01 or 02 so you probably don't know about the playoff series verses the Spurs those years.
