Kobe: Just How Good Is He?

People have been comparing Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan ever since he first appeared in the NBA, but it’s only been fairly recently that I’ve started to hear people actually suggest that Bryant is the better player.

This is shocking to me. I know that Kobe is great, and one of a handful of players all time who can legitimately be compared to MJ, but really, I don’t think it’s even very close. Then I saw a statistical comparison of the two players, and as it turns out, Kobe is better—at least, at free throw shooting.

Jordan dominates pretty much every other category.

Don’t get me wrong, Kobe Bryant is a stud. He’s one of the best players of all time and unless and until LeBron James learns how to play defense, he’ll be the best player in the league.

But until he wins several championships without having a Hall of Fame center to shoulder the load, let’s give this debate a rest, okay?
