I have to agree, MJ all day!!
I think Kobe did everything he could to emulate Michael. A lot of people knock him for that, but how could it be a bad thing? He definitely carries the swagger and mental attitude that MJ had. If anything, MJ was more critical of his teammates than Kobe. A big difference however, is that Kobe would constantly do so in public.
Just a few thoughts for you!
