I agree some skills are more effective than others, but if IMO I can't see MJ as the better scorer. Kobe had more in his arsenal.

exactly, I dont think we will ever see another player who can and will get buckets in any way possible like kobe did

 

dude tore his shoulder and would end up missing the rest of the season but he came out of a time out and threw in a shot with his left hand :x

 

no one comes close to being able to take and make the level of difficulty of kobe's shots.

I see what the next ten years of NT is going to be like now

Instead of Kobe vs. Lebron or MJ vs. Kobe or Lebron comparisons

We're going to get Curry vs ___

or Could Curry dominate in the 90s, 80s, etc.

I get your point but I really don't trust defensive stats. You can play flawless defense and your man goes off for 40. Or you can leave a dude wide open or otherwise not really bother him and some stat says you locked him up when really he was just off. The only thing you can gather is that defensive rating in the 90's was lower than it is now. That's the only "fact", the rest is up for interpretation.

I don't think Kobe took tougher shots. They may have looked tougher compared to MJ. But like I said before, MJ's game looked much smoother.

So by the sound of it, it looks like the Bulls plan to use the cap space they're going to get from when Pau, Noah, etc. come off the books, to resign Pau again

I can somewhat agree with this. I've always thought a big difference kobe and Mike is that kobe made the game look difficult. Like when you watch mj you feel like you can run in the backyard and pull off all his moves. With kobe it's like...I'm gonna need to practice for a couple hours first.

I think kobe did take/make tougher shots tho, it's just his dna. I've seen so many times where he'll play a basic game in the first half and be shooting 50, 60+% from the field. Then he'll come out in the second half and start taking all these wtf type shots and finish the game at 45%. He lived for the highlight reel.

Vince carter had the best arsenal of circus shots around the rim next to mj tho

MJ knew how to make his shot attempts easier for himself

When Kobe was at his best, he was just really good at taking and making tough shots

I just enjoy talking about the historical aspect of the NBA. Realistically only 4-6 teams matter and all are just playing for fun. That's why I very rarely chime in about some random team like Pistons.

I enjoy most all aspects of the NFL thread besides the live posting part.

kobe would always catch the ball with space to shoot, wait for the defender to close out, then shoot it anyways :lol

 

I would say MJ is better around the rim though

 

Kobe/VC/Tmac are the last generation of guards who would frequently try to dunk on shotblockers in halfcourt sets. we just dont see it happen much anymore

^Exactly. Veteran MJ has some games that are just straight up boring to watch. Just getting to his sweet spots and running the same moves time after time, not taking any risks. Kg was like that. Kg's game is just as boring as tim duncan imo, if not moreso. Like really bruh...you're just gonna do the same 3 moves your whole career huh.

When you lose the athleticism to pull that off, then you just start sucking

no mentally stable human being that understands the game of basketball should be taking let alone making shots like this

who cares about what he looks like now?

 

he played at a super high level for 14 years, thats longer than most players play at any level 

 

MJ played 15 seasons total. 

 

lakers fans have witnessed more championships in the past 20 years than any other non spurs fan and a lot of it has to do with kobe. do you really think we care about how he's sucking in 2016?

 

plus the same entertaining recklessness that got us championships is now getting us draft picks :hat

No I agree. But that's what makes kobe kobe. That's his mystique and why you can't bring up stats when talking to a kobe fan. He didn't give a damn about stats, he was a thrill seeker, a daredevil. If he wanted he could've been just as efficient as anyone but he's not wired that way.

Yup. That's the essence of kobe. I think it was the rudy t season when he hit this running jumper from behind and over the top of the backboard that was nuts. But he had tried that shot like 2 or 3 times in different games before finally making it laugh.gif. Just a different type of player

Yep

Some people are confusing being a better tough shot maker with being a better scorer.

Im still trying to figure out how Kobe was a better scorer. Is it because he scored 81 points?

Not really sure how much Kobe now really makes a difference.

He's not only old which automatically tanks efficiency of wing players. But you factor in a torn Achilles, broken knee cap, and separate shoulder which is still bothering him.

He was playing at an elite level up until his Achilles injury. That was his 17th season.

What is now, it really makes no difference to how great he was.
