It's the 4th quarter with 3 seconds left, you need the next shot to win the game, would you put the ball in Jordan's hands... or kobe's hands?
i'm going with jordan.
Jordan. end of discussion.
im a huge kobe fan but jordan has a knack for making game winners kobe made alot of them but miss alot to but at least kobe got heart to take the shot miss or make. But im goin to go with jordan
Im Going With Jordan But Anything Less Then That Im Going With Derek Fisher
Kobe has missed quite a few in the past few years.
Jordan is known for making that shot
Its Jordan we r talking about tha most clutch player tha nba has ever saw, kobe has missed a lot of game winners recently but he also also clutch... but its gotta b MJ all tha way
Im goin wit Magic
he either gon take it (which he can)
or quick playmakin skills for a easy bucket
or kicking it out to big shot bob(robert Horry)
staying on topic would be a pretty cool thing to do here jbickart14
This is too easy of a question, people need to stop the Kobe-Jordan comparisons for a few years. We all know Jordan is the best and Kobe is great, but not Jordan great.
Jordan if we need a two Kobe if we need a three.
If its between those two I'll take Jordon, Can't forget his buzzer beater against the Jazz in 1997
Good post lol. Kobe has probably been the NBA's best clutch player since Jordan retired, but this is easy for me... I'm going with MJ all day. Not only could MJ sink the buzzer beater, he could also make the RIGHT PASS.
Let's make this fair. If I'm choosing for todays current game/style then its easily Kobe. Remember all the scrubs that used to guard Jordan back in the day, his two most famous shots are over guys who are below average athletes. I can't think of a single time when Kobe was guarded by a less than average athlete. Jordan was great in his era, but you guys act like he put up these numbers against guys with similar athleicism. Each year that goes bye, Jordans legacy/legendary status expands to a new level, because you guys keep thinking he would dominate TODAYS game like he would his own era. Todays "average athlete" at the two would be more athletic than 90 percent of Jordans era, that should mean something to any of you who actually play and understand the game. Me personally, I would much rather have a more inteligent lesser athlete guarding me, rather than a guy who is more athletic than me guarding me. Whatever though, you guys keep living in fantasy land, thats obvisously what makes you happy.
In that case, I think its harder to get a shot off when the hand check rule is in place and when does athleticism make a person a good defender??? Thats why players that come in the league lack basketball intelligence (especially on the defense side of the ball) because they think that they can get away with just being a good/great athlete.... Maybe you arent old enough to have watched the physical brand of basketball played in the late 80's and early 90's.....
Plus one Billyk... I agree. IMO the players are more athletic today, but not as smart. They lack a lot of fundamentals and awareness. Jordan was not only explosive and athletic... He was SMART. He knew a player's defensive tendencies better than they did.
hey, look at Battier , Bowen , and Bell
3 below avg athletes 3 of the best on D
Jordan, especially if its in the playoffs, greatest playoff performer ever
Just ask Craig Ehlo and Byron Russel who they would pick to take the last shot.
