Kobe also said that Michael is the only one who has truly perfected the game.

I'm a huge Kobe Bryant fan, always have been and always will be. I'm always pulling for him, hoping that the Lakers would win the west, etc. A few days ago I started looking up NBA videos on youtube, and I was shocked to learn that so many, probably 14 year olds not only put him on the same level as Michael, but actually think that Kobe is better. I mean I guess I understand it, since they never saw Jordan play, and they have no reference. Isolated youtube clips don't even do Michael Jordan justice, its basically an era that you have to actually live through to completely understand how dominant Michael Jordan was. His mind and drive is what set him apart. As great as he was, he just went to the next level in like the last 4 minutes of every game. He's what I call the ultimate alpha male. I cannot explain the fear, the vibe that there was when Jordan was playing against your team. I'm at a lost for words and I really cant describe it, it's actually an era that you have you have to live through to understand. I wasn't a Jordan fan during those days. I mean I liked him, but I was always pulling against him, because I lived in NY and I was a Knicks fan. In NY the only people who liked Jordan were people who basically jumped on the bandwagon, because the Bulls were the best team. (They didn't watch basketball, else they would have been Knicks fans, since those are games shown on local television, and reported on the news.) But anyway, I wasn't a Jordan fan, but I remember his last game as Bull. Typical Jordan, there's like less than a minute left in the game, he steals the ball from Karl Malone, doesn't even call time out. He just sets up Russell, does a move that Ive never seen before, a penetrating jab step, step back Jumper, and as he's releasing the ball I'm thinking "8 years of this already, he just has to finally miss this." (Actually 7 years of me watching basketball) I was so sure he was going to miss it, because enough is enough already, but after seeing that live, the way he ended that game, his history, you realize that he's literally not a typical human being. And by that I mean mentally. Bottom line, when Kobe retires, they're not going to be comparing the next great to Kobe Bryant, they are going to be comparing the next great to Michael Jordan. So it almost doesn't matter. In other words future NBA fans are going to know about Jordan, but very little about Kobe Bryant. It's what happens when time moves on. Also, the future teenager are also probably going to consider who ever the best of that era is to be the greatest of all time, even if Kobe Bryant was obviously better.
