    So if MJ is only slightly better than kobe why are they repeatedly disrespecting Kobe?

  • Kyle Jett  (1 day ago))

    Jordan might have the better resume on paper but I think we can all agree that Kobe faced stiffer competition. For years and years all the Western Conference playoff teams were championship quality teams. Kobe beat all of them.

    +Joseph Imbang I don't know if he is better than Jordan but Kobe made shots that nobody makes!!!

  • Trey Bens  (Dec 7, 2018))

    LeBron better hope he could get Shaq type love at BEST. Kobe and Magic are untouchables in L.A. Like Jordan is an untouchable in Basketball

    lebron is essentially a guest in LA. Its never gonna really have the same feel, especially since he is retired now. kobe got it i think he is honestly the most loved laker by lakers fans ever period. u cant be better than kobe in l.a. unless your last name is jordan

  • Pablo Alvarado  (Dec 10, 2018))

    This should even be a conversation cause Kobe was loyal to the lakers 20 years never went to another team even when he had bums on his side he still stood with the lakers lebron is not loyal so he never be Kobe in los angels never

    +SNEEK19 "Almost left" is not the same as leaving. It's not even close to being the same thing.

  • Pournflakes  (Dec 10, 2018))
