It's not even the game style that's similar

Look at the way they pull up, follow through, and even fall back/back pedal after the shot. It's all so similar.

Kobe is a stalker.

Who knows how much tape/video he's watched of his idol.

Anyone a psychologist?

I copied MJ's game too growing up, and so did a lot of others, so I relate. I will say, however, I think Kobe is the Michael Jordan of copying Michael Jordan.

Jordan played with just a little bit more poise and control than Kobe; his moves look smoother, more efficient and effortless.

Kobe does a great MJ impression, but there is only one Jordan.

Players are too dumb to play like Jordan. Jordan's game was poetry in motion. A testament to hard and innovative work, particularly his later years.

Kyrie Irving (offensively) gives me hope that at least some young guys coming up are intelligent enough to understand the game isn't just all handles and jump shots.

Similar, except for the most important fact. Jordan was a far more efficient scorer.

It's pretty common knowledge that kobe mimic'd Jordan's game. This isn't just coincidence, he did it on purpose.

What? Kobe's health been amazing, few nicks here and there. The Achilles was truly his first real injury. The knees was up and down but for the most part he faced a little better luck on that knee department compared to other super athletic guards. Of course alot of is due to his work ethic.

The reason why you say his health has been amazing is because he plays through it and still at an elite level. Lets just go back to his finger injuries (torn ligaments leading to arthritis), most players would get surgery immediately or there play would suffer immediately...Most players cannot adjust on the fly...
