Kobe Bryant vs Michael Jordan – Identical Plays (Video)

The who is the next Michael Jordan debate has fueled ever since his second retirement. Is it LeBron James, is it Kobe Bryant? Well, one YouTuber compiled a videos of plays from Michael Jordan’s career and mixed them with plays from Kobe Bryant’s career to compare the two.

The similarities are stunning.

The video starts with various people comparing the two saying they have similar mentalities. It goes back and forth showing plays from Michael Jordan’s career and eerily similar plays from Kobe Bryant. Not only to incredible shots made on the court, or what looks like mirror image dunks. They show matching dribbling flashes, matching juke moves.

The video ends with Michael Jordan pumping his fist as confetti falls and switches to Kobe Bryant celebrating almost identically as confetti falls on him.

The plays look so identical that it almost appears as if the similarities were intentional. Say like a previous Michael Jordan commercial that shows kids replicating his most famous plays.
