Laker fans love the finger point. But that isn't even close to his overall legacy. Someone mentioned that the fadeaway is associated with MJ, and to a degree it is. But Kobe made it a MAJOR part of his game. MJ is also associated with Great D, dunking and rings. Doesn't mean that other people can't have that too. When I think of Jordan I think of him DUNKING ON people like Ewing. Kobe, I think off a double pump and a beautiful fadeaway. I think most people around the world would see it the same. The finger point is just a great LAKER moment. Only Laker fans really appreciate that. 50 years from now, kids should see that fade away in the front with Kareem.
