Kobe better than MJ? Really???

16

Kickerblogger has a good post up about the arguement of Kobe vs MJ. To me there is no arguement, MJ was flat out better, and the stats and rings show it. (As does this weekends blow out loss to the Rockets) The poster, uses per36 min stats to compare the two players, an he gap between them is very very apparent. But I was interested in seeing how D. Wade's season compared, because I felt he had a much better season that Kobe, and only just below LBJ. Wade p/36 pts 28.2 blk 1.3 stls 2.0 asts 7.0 rebs 4.7 ts% 57.4 eFG% 51.6 FGA 20.5 3PA 3.3 FTA 9.1 FT% 76.5 3P% 31.7 They still don't match or exceed MJ's stats from when he was Wade's age, (27) but they are much closer than Kobe's are. When will people who should know something about basketball, stop talking about Kobe like he is as good or even better than MJ? Maybe never, which is sad because he never was, and never will be like Mike.
