Kobe with the big hands like MJ had.. they'd be a dead lock other than the obvious hops advantage MJ had early on. Kobe certainly could fly though.
Yeah MJ with the bigger hands was a better finisher I think around the basket. Kobe, however, is a far more creative and explosive player around the basket. Kobe's smaller hands along with his unquestionable work ethic I think make him the better shooter as well as Jackie Mcmillen said in the video.
I was talking to my friend a while back and I said "Kobe is the better scorer than Jordan" and he said no, look at their efficiency. Jordan is on average far more efficient than Kobe is.
He's right of course and that got me thinking. I think Kobe is the better shooter from distance, yes. But as far as scoring goes I think Kobe is better when he gets hot. When Kobe is hot, I've never seen anything like it. He's untouchable. Even Jordan couldn't compare to Kobe's absolutely stunning scoring runs.
