Kobe's style of play is certainly not like Jordan's. Maybe 34 year old Jordan...

Jordan was a much more aggressive player than Kobe. I agree that Kobe is the best perimeter player in the league just like Jordan was, but he's not nearly the indisputable best player in the league like Jordan was.

Kobe is to Jordan as Nowitski is to Bird.

Kobe is to LA LAKERS as Lebron is to the Cavaliers.

First, get rid of the Kobe & Jordan Drama. Jordan has done his job and moved on. Let Jordan go people! It's been 9 to 11 years since the Bulls split up and how come people can't get over it? Kobe don't want to be in MJ's shadow. Kobe is Kobe, that's how Kobe want it to be. Blame the media- Don't Believe The Hype! Odom compared to Pippen? I don't see it nor I don't care. I see Odom out on the court playing good basketball, not a Pippen shadow. Leave the greats of the past in the past and let todays stars build there own chapter.

That's a good analogy, actually. Kobe's a bit closer to Jordan than Dirk is to Bird, however, because of his defense and clutchness.

Nope. If Nowitski=Bird, then Kobe=Jordan.

Not, if Nowitski + defense + clutch = Bird, then Kobe = Jordan. The comparisons are not that far apart.

Wait, you were actually under the impression that Dirk = Bird? I thought you were using the (certain) difference between them in terms of impact/play and comparing that to the (certain) difference between Kobe and Jordan.

All in all, It's unclear what you're trying to say.

The only thing Dirk has in common with Larry is that they're both white and ugly. The comparisons end there.

I've seen Bird play since he entered the league. Seen almost every Laker game since Magic entered the league. I hated Bird because he was the only player I was scared to see play The Lakers. Wasn't a great athlete, but made himself one of the greatest basketball players ever. Appreciated Bird's greatness later on in life when I took a step back as a rabid Laker fan and saw how Bird did everything to try to win. Bird made his teammates play their best and pushed them to even play better when it mattered. Just like Magic. Just like Jordan.


So I believe I can make this comparison...If Kobe = Jordan, then Nowitski = Bird. You can take it any way you want, but this is what i think. Because I think Kobe is as close to MJ, as Nowitski is as close to Bird.

I thought I was clear in what I was trying to point out. Kobe is as close to Jordan as a basketball player as Nowitski is to Bird. I just forgot to mention that Nowitski may crack the top 50 or top 40 of all time (his career ain't over yet), but Birds entrenched in the top 10.

Which is to say, then, not really close.
