There will always be continuous comparisons between Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James. Each amazing player has their own faction of fans who will argue why their favorite player is the best.
The comparisons between Kobe and Jordan have been ongoing for years now, and it makes sense as the two share a number of traits. In an interview from his basketball camp with Fox News Alabama, Boston Celtics forward Gerald Wallace spoke about how one of those traits separates them from James:
I think the only thing that separates LeBron from Kobe and Michael Jordan right now is that he doesn’t have the attitude or the fight that those guys had. For me, he’s not willing to take over games […] right now I don’t think he has that and that’s what Michael Jordan and even Kobe has.
This has long been a criticism of James’ game and he has shown the ability at times to be able to take over games. But the fire that Kobe and Jordan had are unlike any other.
The comparison between all three will rage on regardless of what anyone says. People simply want to know who’s the best.
