Kobe Bryant says players steal his moves, just like he stole Michael Jordan’s


Earlier today, NBA legend Michael Jordan made some waves in a promotional video for NBA 2K where he suggested that he would beat LeBron James on-on-one, though, wasn’t sure about Kobe Bryant, playfully suggesting that Bryant has stolen his moves.

Never one to back down, Bryant took to his Twitter this afternoon, fully admitting that he did steal some of Jordan’s famed maneuvers, though, suggested the current generation is doing the same to him:

Domino effect. I stole some of his..this generation stole some of mine #thecycle

Truthfully, I’m not really sure where Bryant was going with this as Jordan seemed to be almost complimenting Bryant, though, just added a ribbing jab with the stolen moves comments. Bryant on the other hand appeared to be a little more serious in his response, though, I don’t think the conversation will halt any dinner plans the two may have in the near future. Maybe Kobe was wishing for a Jordan admission that he couldn’t handle Black Mamba.

Fact is, they’re both correct – and imitation is the greatest form of flattery, right?
