As Roo said, I'd take Kareem over Jordan. As much as it pains me, I'd say Jordan was better than Kobe, but I gotta throw this in: Kobe at his best (in the zone) is better than Jordan at his best. Kobe got hotter and stayed there longer than anyone. I think Phil was even quoted as saying this once and everyone loves a good Phil quote.
The whole Jordan vs Kobe thing is interesting. No one compared Wade to Jordan. But Kobe haters are always the first to bring up Jordan when bashing Kobe. Kobe might be Jordan, but he's the closest thing to him.
Lastly, I think Kobe said it best when he said, "different career paths."

however, i wanted to get a feel of:
1) did you watch jordan's prime (90-98)?
2) do you think jordan has reached an unattainable status due to the myth/legend growing larger via the media and as time passes?
3) why isn't there a big man equivalent of jordan? some might say russell, kaj, wilt, etc as the greatest big man of all time, but jordan is hands down the greatest wing of all time.
