Numbers don't lie
Kobe- 29.5 ppg 5.2 rpg 5.0 apg 47.7% FG 38.1 3pt% 1.6 spg
MJ- 28.7 ppg 5.8 rpg 3.5 apg 46.5% FG 23.8 3pt% 1.7 spg
Both are great.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
You're comparing Jordan's whole season to Kobe's 26 games.
MJ's trophy case at 34<<< Kobe's trophy case at 34
Numbers don't lie..

Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
How about win/loss record through the first 26 games?
Guess who leads the league in shots taken?

Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
How about playing the entire season without your starting PF and PG? And guess who's shooting 47%?

Will you give Kobe his just props if he finishes the season with those numbers?
Rubbish....Kobe's age 34 season is still in progress.
Thread is irrelevant then..
Even if Kobe were to get another ring this year....and we all know that's not likely to happen...and even if he were to get finals MVP, he's still three behind MJ.
Kobe is and has been a great player. But you just come across as a retarded fanboy trying g to make the case that can't be made: that he's as good as or better than MJ
This fact is never going to change: MJ>>>>Kobe.
Damn Jordan was a shitty 3 point shooter
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Were your parents related? I never said Kobe was better than Jordan, moron. I said Kobe at age 34 is having a better season than Jordan at 34.....what they did prior to age 34 is irrelevant to this thread.
Your stats are so off it's almost comical

The Lakers suck and Kobe is a has been. Maybe eventually he won't take 40 shots a game
And Derek Fisher scored 11.9 more ppg at age 30 than MJ did.
I mean as long as we're talking utterly meaningless shit that's apropos of nothing
I think for you all to be shooting this down as if it couldn't even be possible is far more ignorant than what the OP is saying. What Kobe is doing this season is incredible, especially when you look at the metric stats. Their PER's are about the same, but Kobe's shooting has been through the roof, 60% true shooting percentage is just silly for a guard who takes as many shots as Kobe. Jordan's usage was actually higher also which resulted in much better assist percentage but 1. no knowledgable basketball fan would ever compare MJ's passing with Kobe's and 2. MJ's team was better than Kobe's to this point at least. Its yet to be seen if Kobe can prolong this but if he can I think I might actually agree with the OP on an individual basis.
This is outrageous. They didn't both enter the league at the same time. Do it by season. Also. Kobe has had more talent around him than Micheal ever did. Especially interior talent, which is one of the most important pieces to winning championships. Get out of here with this argument. It's silly
Teein' Off on Links
Wasn't Jordan playing baseball at 34?
Didnt mean to downvote. Stupid phone.
No. He was 34 during the 97-98 season, his last with the Bulls.
Wouldn't Kobe entering the league at a much earlier age actually be an argument in his favor?
Look, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. I don't think anyone would argue that. I just think its silly that it's sacreligious to say anyone could have been better than Mike at any thing at any time. All the OP is saying is that at 34, Kobe is playing better than MJ was at 34. It's highly debatable, and an argument that can only truly be measured after Kobe's season, but on an individual basis so far what Kobe is doing is nothing short of spectacular.
The guy is top ten all time, I don't think that's debatable.
kobe is not as close to jordan as many of you think. This age idea doesnt make sense. Kobe is a top 5 guard already, and is approaching top 10 GOAT if he has continued success. I respect the guy but this arguement gets on my nerves because its cause is to say that "oh look, maybe if kobe keeps playing well he'll catch MJ. And quite simply, statistically that is going to be near impossible. Its not that i'm an "MJ" guy, i just love history and when i see posts like this i feel like they somehow distort the real story.
If you want a great statistical analysis of the two, click the link below. Sorry, i'm not trying to s**t on anyone, just trying to put things in perspective like everyone else is.

Jordan didn't have the benefit of going to Germany to get crazy treatments done to his knee.
An aging star and the new procedure that could revolutionize sports medicine.

Thanks for that
Frankly the tale of the tape on reg season stats is kinda ”whatever”
But what seperates them by a fairly substantal margin is finals mvp's and clutch perormances....not even close.
I'd hate Kobe too if I was an MJ fanboy.
