Who is Like Mike?
« on: March 17, 2005, 07:46:37 AM »
Many comparisons. Lotsa HYPE. But who most resembles His Airness??


His classic commercial: http://rapidshare.de/files/829596/jordan_fail_succeed.mov.html

Kobe? Dwayne "Flash" Wade? Or Lebron James?



My pick goes to ... DUH Kobe You must watch this mix video by LakeShow (5:26 ~ 33 MB DivX - Mike vs Kobe):

I have no suggestion but of the 3 suggested, I'd say Kobe.

Anyways I think Wade least resembles MJ because he doesn't really have range.  I find he mostly drives and does runners, layups or dunk.

I'll say Kobe, and Le Bron a close second.

Wade doesn't have the shooting range....yet.

Kobe. Because of the shoot first mentality and his killer instinct. LeBron's game is only similar to Jordan only in the fact that they can both jump out of the building.

No flavor of the month this time at the Compound.

During the few times that he's NOT injured...I'd say Vince Carter.   I still remember seeing him during the Sydney Olympics when he jumped COMPLETELY over some European guy and dunked a basket!

None. No one can compare with his majesty.

Anyway Kobe is an incredible player but my favourite is AI. It's just incredible how he can compete with 2m tall and 110kg players...

After watching the games on the weekend...it's tough huh?



Watching Bron-Bron chew his nails ERRR choke against the Nuggets and Lakers, and he even admitted to not having the killer instincts like Kobe. WOW. he likes to share the ball, but when the fuckin game is on the line, even Magic Johnson goes for the game winner - not clanking his free throws. Stealing his #23. King James. His Nike commercials are lame too. At least Jordan was funny.



D-Wade has some of that killer instincts, he has had many clutch games. He's more of a hybrid Allen Iverson-Kobe Bryant.

Here's a "View" from ESPN. Yeah, no one can be Jordan but Kobe and Wade are better replicas than the past crop of wannabes.

After THIS happened, along with that recent streak of games where he had 40+ points per, I'm almost tempted to switch my vote to Kobe.

None. No one even comes close to dominating the game the way MJ and the Bulls did.

More importantly, MJ defined the public perception of the game. No other player is anywhere near as iconic.

Man, 81 points in one game is absolutely nuts.  I mean, there are games when a whole TEAM couldn't get that many points.

JPH!P :heart:'s Fushigidane, ChrNo, Jab & marimari. Always.

MJ could've scored 81 pts too if the hand check rule was put in effect during his reign.

I think MJ could have 50+ pts per game for a season and could easily score over 80+ pts in a game if he was a goddamn selfish player.  Fortunately MJ was not and that's why he had his succeed in his career.

Kobe Bryant is most similar to Michael Jordan due to similar skillsets.  Biggest difference is Kobe is a little bit better shooter and Michael Jordan is a better defender, had bigger hands and was more efficient.
