Lakers News: Kobe Opens Up About Trash Talking Michael Jordan

Very few players have ever accomplished enough in their NBA careers to be compared to Michael Jordan. Perhaps no player has come as close to equaling Jordan as Kobe Bryant himself.

Other than their similar physical attributes and accomplishments, the two are also very similar mentally, pushing themselves to great limits when no one thinks they have anything left.

Phil Jackson coached both great players and had shared a story about Kobe meeting Jordan and saying that he would beat him one-on-one. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Bryant didn’t completely dispute the story, and according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, did have some words for Jordan later in their careers:

The game Bryant is referring to is from March of 2003 in their final game against each other. Bryant scored 42 in the first half, and 55 points total, in the Lakers 108-94 win over the Washington Wizards. Jordan scored 23 in the game.

Jordan is well known for his trash talk and he has almost definitely given Kobe a lot of grief over previous games between the two. Jordan is not the type to forget games like this, so it’s likely that Bryant will be able to remind Jordan of this for a long time.

Magic Johnson may prefer Jordan over Kobe and Phil Jackson may agree, but it was Kobe who got the last laugh between the two, and he has no problem reminding Jordan of that.

    42 in one half! Some players struggle to score 42 in a whole game! Kobe is one of the best to ever put the ball in the hoop that’s forsure

    • TrueLakersFan

      Yep, Kobe is only known for scoring. Name me one player that wanted to play with him? That’s why he has only 1 MVP. Kobe is on the decline and can’t even crack 50 anymore. Change your name to Kobe4life, there’s a difference between being a Lakers fan and a Kobe ONLY fan. Give me the next Lakers star!

      • purp& goldpride

        Kobehas played in 7 finals, and has led his team in assit each of those finals appearances. Not bad. And while your so busy pushing him out, there is no guarantee that it next “star” is a fraction of what Kobe has been to this franchise. 2 years left. Better enjoy it. A once in a generation player.

        • purp& goldpride

          He also has amassed more assit than any of the current top 5 all time scoring. All while being only one of the two guards in the top 10 all time scoring (the other, Jordan)

          • psedog

            All that while being called a ball hog the entire time.

          • Lazky

            He is a SHOOTING gaurd that passes more than any other sg lol

          • Daydamond0711

            And turns the ball over more too

        • Daydamond0711

          Also led in TO’s..

      • NaughtyProfessor

        Thank you Sir for putting it so eloquently. I’ve ALWAYS felt this dude was one of the most overrated stars in the HISTORY of sports….!!! The Lakers will still be shining in the sun long after your obsolete dude……!

        • Gianni Kensenhuis

          he is not overrated.. he is was very very good.. just not as good as jordan

        • tech

          Dude, you’re obviously a Kobe hater. Maybe if you didn’t waste like half a day replying to everyone just to express your personal hate on him, MAYBE then it wouldn’t be so damn obvious. Regardless of what you say on some comments over the internet, Kobe Bryant remains one of the legends of the game, while you remain just a little guy that talks a lot of sh*t about legends, on the internet.

          • Al Haldie

            Ya he is just a wanta-be.

        • James Cooper

          Over-rated is the best way to describe that rapist Kobe.

          • Al Haldie

            This is really DUMB-everyone has an OPINION -their just like ass holes everyone has one.

      • ShutIt

        You are such a hater! To answer your question, “Pau Gasol” Now can you name a player that said he won’t play with Kobe?

      • lakers4life

        TrueLAKERSFAN: I’ll rep lakers4life and as long as kobe is on the laker team ill support him..he brought 5 rings to the lakers with that being said when kobe retire you will see his jersey on the wall. You say kobe you also are saying laker..kobe and lakers go hand and hand you jackass..so don’t say im an only kobe fan when im giving props to kobe…go somewhere else and shut up little boy and your not a true laker fan if your a kobe hater

        • James Cooper

          Like someone else said, 3 of those 5 rings that Kobe has were gifts from Shaq the 2nd best center to play in the NBA after Wilt.

          • JuicyFruit

            Some People say 3 of those 4 Rings that Shaq has where gifts from Kobe. And the other one was a gift from Wade.

          • James Cooper

            Probably retards like you. When Shaq played with Wade Wade was the MVP and therefore rightly deserved it and yes Wade won it from Shaq just like Shaq won 3 for this dumb piece of shit Kobe. Get that into your thick head!

      • haha

        well, because he’s old lol…but the way he plays is GREAT…scoring only?hell no…research first boy before saying things that aint true…

      • James Cooper

        Spoken like a true Laker fan. Respect!!!

      • http://google.com Levi Trudeau-Syrette

        Kobe accomplished what no one other has been able to… YOU CAN HATE ALL YOU WANT…. NO ONE will be able to do this for a LONG TIME COMING… LeBron even played pretty much every minute of every quarter and couldn’t punch those kind of numbers in ONE QUARTER…. SO GO AHEAD KEEP HATING LOL JUST KEEP HATING IT WONT CHANGE A FUCKING THING… KEEP BITCHING AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS AND THAT BUT ALL YOU CAN DO IS HATE

        • James Cooper

          Ok keep the Caps lock on and type: Kobe is an over-rated piece of shit!

          • that one guy

            lol… why u so mad James? You care an awful lot. Kobe is a great player regardless of how many times you call him a piece of shit, it won’t change anything. His fans will still back him (and they should), the NBA will still love him, and when he retires he’ll be inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame.

            “get that through your thick skull”.

        • Daydamond0711

          What has he accomplished exactly?

      • Lazky

        cp3 until stern took him

      • Sean Korb

        Kobe was an elite defender most of his career and is still not half bad on defense. He has had many big playoff games where he has acted as facilitator for 2-3 quarters before going into scoring mode. II don’t even like the guy, but to say he’s only known for scoring shows that you don’t know basketball very well at all. It’s a staggeringly ignorant statement

      • Aaron agee

        Kobe only had 1mvp because of the trouble he got into… calm down we all know he deserves at least two more… easy

    • Gianni Kensenhuis

      compare the age.. kobe was pretty young and micheal was very old when that game happened..

    • James Cooper

      Best ever to not give the ball to anyone else.

      • psedog

        Check the assist stats. You are wrong and so is everyone else saying he never passes. Why is everyone so ignorant?

    • James Cooper

      Yeah one of the best ever to not give the ball to anyone else.

      • Al Haldie

        You sound like you have trouble with BALLS.

        • James Cooper

          So does your mum

  • Patrick Jackson

    I don’t think you could consider it a last laugh.had he done it in 97 or 98? yes. if i was kobe i wouldn’t count it.

  • NaughtyProfessor

    I had to weigh in on this one. I 100% agree with Patrick Johnson(below). Michael Jordan was like 40 years old at the time. 40 KOBE! Just go to Wikipedia, look at MJ’s accomplishments/awards and PLEASE SHUT YOUR TRAP!!!

    • Pope Chuck Paul

      i’d still brag about it though. it’s mj lol

      • NaughtyProfessor

        Hey pope, if you feel that way, then power to ya brother… Did you see Jordan do that chase down block + possession on the Wizards at 40?

        • James Cooper

          Even at 39 and 40 the dude was putting up some ridiculous numbers including a 50 point game and many 40 point games, game winners and what have you. Even defensively despite his advanced age he was terrific.

          • NaughtyProfessor

            James a lot of these teens or guys in their early 20′s are oblivious to that… They just see Kobe and are clueless to the fact that Kobe modelled EVERYTHING in his game in homage to Jordan- fist pump, the jog, his interviews, the signature fade jumper…, etc… Thankfully some of us know HISTORY!

  • NaughtyProfessor

    For a guy who presents himself as this eloquent and polished gentleman, he sure Sats a lot of dumb and insensitive crap at times….. Example: the Miami Heat stand on Trayvon when he welcomed the support of black America during his rape trial, his flip flop afterwards about Frederick Douglass, his remarks on D’Antoni and constantly berating teammates who have good motives and sincerely want the TEAM to succeed… Calling his own loyal fans of LA “dumb & stupid”- aren’t those two words synonymous Kobe’s? Guess you didn’t pick that up in grammar son……

    • James Cooper

      Couldn’t agree more!

  • EmperorKing

    Kobe is simply the best!!!!!

    • NaughtyProfessor

      Hey King, just out of curiosity…, how do YOU measure “THE BEST”- rings, MVPS, Stats, what his peers and others in the fiekd think or just your opinion?

      • EmperorKing

        In my opinion men he is the best prof. understand I dont care about the thoughts of everyone but for me its Kobe ok..

        • NaughtyProfessor

          Ok, you don’t care about the thoughts of everyone, but you post YOUR thoughts for everyone to see- makes sense…

          • EmperorKing

            yeah because for me Kobe is the best..

  • Shoaib Mohamed

    Wow this joker Kobe who won 3 of his 5 championships while piggybacking on Shaq (who was the best player and finals MVP in all 3 of those Laker Championship years including the post season and finals) talking about scoring big on a 40 year old Michael Jordan playing on one knee. The bigger question is how the hell did a 40 year old Jordan playing on one knee score 23 against someone half of his age in that condition? Kobe should be a shamed of himself just for that. If Kobe had an ounce of intelligence (which he clearly doesn’t) he would be embarrassed to talk about what he did against a 40 year old Jordan playing on one knee, We all saw how a 35 year old Jordan took a 18 year old Kobe to school in 1998. If you want bragging rights take him on at his best and beat him at his best but no one did. No one can ever say they beat Michael Jordan to win a NBA Championship cause Jordan is 6 for 6 for 6 in NBA finals and that is a record no one, not Kobe, not Lebron and I mean no one can claim or even come close to and that is why Jordan is and always will be the G.O.A.T. Also, you earn the right to brag when you destroy an all time great player when that player is in his prime. Roll back the years to 1986 and we remember how a young Michael Jordan in just his second season scored 63 points in the playoffs (most points ever scored in a play-off game in NBA history) against Larry Bird and the iconic Boston Celtics team in their prime and at their very best. Now that’s how you earn bragging rights!!!

    • Joeyskillz75

      Shalolib or whatever the fuck your name is shut the fuck up.. kobe and shaq had similar numbers.. look at the stats of 2001, the year they won a ring same points per game. No disrespect to Jordan but you dumb ass can’t disrespect kobe.. There ain’t no one in the game that can’t stay as hot as kobe once he’s on.. even Phil Jackson says it.. read before you talk.. Jordan never outscored a whole team by himself in 4 quarters. 62 to 61 against the mavericks. . Never had 81.. Jordan only won with pippen who is possibly the greatest small forward besides lebron.. pippen is a beast look at the numbers .. everybody needs helps even Jordan so don’t say shit.. no one

      player can win a ring solo..

      • NaughtyProfessor

        Easy dude… What’s with the vitriol? It’s just a debate…. Calm down you! FACTS: More MVPS, MORE TITLES, GREATER LEGACY, MORE WIDELY DISTINGUISHED AND RECOGNIZED BY PEERS AND FORMER GREATS.., A SHOE THAT IS A GLOBAL BRAND, SONGS NAMED AFTER HIM “BE LIKE MIKE”….. Even your boy Kobe grew up idolizing that and singing that very song everyday in the shower… In that 81-point game- he played the Raptors who guarded him like 95yr. Old on skates… Kobe refused to take himself out of that game- Jordan’s coach DID! Kobe is widely known as a ball-hog dude… So tell me this: how hard is it to put up stellar numbers when you put up an astronomical amount of shots and tell your teammates “screw you”…. Better leader, better legacy, more decorated in awards by the league, sports writers and colleagues….. And shoes that STILL COMMAND $300-$400 a pair… Holler at me when Kobe reaches such heights!

        • Carl Lee Bonner II

          Who cares! Everyone knows Jordan is better, say something new. I hate when people like you try to hate on Kobe’s 81 point game. He did that $hit against an NBA team who point blank! Statistically, or any other way besides a few nice highlights, we all know Jordan trumps Kobe. Get off that bullshit and give credit where it’s due..

          • NaughtyProfessor

            If you’d learn to read dude, I never discredited him as a great player, or even one of the greatest of all time….. What I do gave issue with is punks like you giving this dude props for going on TV to brag about schooling a 40-yr old Jordan well past his prime……… You got it?

        • Shoaib Mohamed

          Well said!

        • Laker4life

          That was just a movie, he acted a cartoon movie, space jam it was, and I believe that’s when that song came out. I want to be like mike, stop acting like some one made songs about it , it was just for that movie for little kids to star liking MJ, and he ain’t the only one that has a shoe brand after him, ok he was good no question about it but don’t make it bigger than it really is.

          • MikstaLK46

            Actually the song is from the ’91 or ’92 Gatorade Commercial, not for the Movie ;)

          • James Cooper

            @Laker4life – Are you out of your fucking mind? MJ made US$ 90 million last year which was the 2nd most by an athlete after Floyd M. A bulk of thise earnings came from the Jordan brand earnings. As at end of 2013 the Jordan brand had 54% of the US shoe market. Again this is a shoe named after a guy who has not played in the NBA for more than 10 years meaning a 15 year old wearing a pair of Air Jordans would have never seen him play, certainly not at his prime with the Bulls. That is magic of Michael Jordan. 5 of the 6 highest rated and most watched NBA finals on TV were those that involved Michael Jordan and the Bulls and THE highest rated and THE most watches was the 1998 NBA finals. 16 years after taking that iconic shot to win the 1998 championship every mother’s son in the NBA is still desperately trying to be like Mike. He is the standard that every athlete in every sport wants to mesaure up to. When an athelete in another sport puts in a remarkable performance the highest accolodae given to him by his team-mates, coach and the media is “He is the Michael Jordan of………” That itself tells you that Michael Jordan is the standard by which greatness in any sport or pretty much anything is measured and you and some other fools here want to compare Kobe to Mike. What the fuck is wrong with you? Kobe is great but he will never even come close to Michael Jordan’s undisputed standing as THE G.O.A.T!

        • rnesunga

          I would agree that Jordan is probably the GOAT…better than Kobe, Magic, Larry, Dr. J, Wilt, Bill Russell, etc. But one thing people need to remember is that Jordan was a ballhog as a young player and during his prime also. He did not really learn to pass the ball until defenses figured how to stop him. Also, talking about taking shots at folks, I guess people already forgot Jordan’s HOF speech…that is as public as you can get. Kobe has many flaws…and so do everybody else. More people like Jordan than Kobe, but I am just surprised how many are posting their dislike of Kobe in a Laker page.

          • NaughtyProfessor

            Messing a, if agree with just about EVERYTHING you just said, which tells me you’re a deep thinker and insightful. Jordans hall of fame speech was ridiculous and shocking in some parts.. I personally think Rodman’s HOF speech was far superior and think of how Rodman was widely viewed by others(silly, crazy, off the wall, etc). Anyways, I digress…… What I STILL vehemently disagree with is Jordan being a ball hog when he was younger. Go bag please and view his CAREER ASSISTS vs Kobe’s…. Not to mention fellow teammates like Kerr, Kukoc, Pippen, Rodman, Harper, Armstrong and others who openly speak about his unselfish leadership. THAT my friend is a strong component of greatness!!!

      • James Cooper

        Joeysucksdick or whatever the fuck your sorry ass name is, you need to get your head out of Kobe’ass and who knows your brain (assuming you do have one) might then re-boot and start to function again and then you might stop uttering dumb ass shit like your post above. No one with half a brain will even think about equating a piece of shit like Kobe with MJ. This piece of shit got swept in the Western conference semis by Dallas 4-0 in his prime. what a fucking joke!

        • NaughtyProfessor

          James, you know BASKETBALL, even BETTER-You know HISTORY & your articulate enough to present powerful arguments….. Fantastic Sir!!!

    • KB>MJ

      And he lost. Even got swept if i remember right! 63 points means nothing in a loss.

      • MJ > Coat tailing Shaq ak Kobe

        It doesnt but nothing to brag about with that 81 pts against one of the worst defenses dieing that year ( toronto raptors) during REGULAR season game. Rather score 63 in a playoff game against a very well coached and best defenses during that era.

    • NaughtyProfessor

      Shall obi, ignore these fools…. They think it’s a major feat for Kobe to play a 40 year old man whose best days were CLEARLY behind him…… Put your fingers in your ears bra.., ignore the noise!!!

      • Lakers4life

        You guys think about this topic next time you guys bring James vrs Kobe, saying that James is the best player, ok is the same difference Jordan was older than Kobe, Kobe is older than James. You could be the best player but you never going to be as good against a raising star when you are almost at the end of your career, mo matter how many MVP’s rings you got, you can’t compete with age, no matter if you were the best player ever. So if you guys think that MJ was and is the best player ever, he would be the only player in the hall of fame. You talking about that the points that Kobe score against Toronto don’t mean a thing because it was a bad team, so is it fair to say that when MJ scored 62 points agains a bad team those points don’t mean nothing because it was a bad team.? Remember the rule of the game is you are a winner if you beat your opponent by 1 point or 100, is the same thing Kobe score 81 points more than MJ, so Kobe has more points than MJ, Kobe has more points in a single game against Jordan, it doesn’t mean Kobe is better than Jordan or vice vers, stop that shit, Jordan was the best on his prime something Kobe, you have to argue this when you talking almost same age players. And who cares if Kobe say something about MJ, is not like MJ never brag about the same thing.

    • Lakers4life

      How many more rings shaqtus won after he left LA LAKERS.? 1 and it wasn’t by him self, wade help him. Like it or not Kobe has 1 up on shaq,

      • James Cooper

        He was injury plagued. But fact remains that Shaq was the finals MVP in 3 of those 5 Laker championship teams and Kobe was the 2nd best players in the side. The Jordan comparisons end right there for Jordan was 6 for 6 for 6 as someone else said. NEVER beaten in the finals and finals MVP in each of those 6 championship years. Stop embarrasing yourself by mentioning Kobe’s name in the same sentence as Michael Jordan.

        • Robert Shore

          Mr. Cooper, I have read all the takes, comments and I have to say you sound like a moron, very little objectivity, are you sure your name isn’t Mrs. Jordan Lol.. anyway.. there could be a great argument for Kobe or Jordan as the.. best ever.. they do look the best ever playing the game, don’t forget Magic and Kareem in that argument..

          • James Cooper

            You are most definitely an oxi moron for even using the phrase “best ever” and the name of that rapist Kobe in the same senetence. You too like other fucked up kobe fans need to get your head out of Kobe’s ass and then maybe your brain will re-boot and start to work again and ensure that you never make dumb ass comments like the one above.

    • NaughtyProfessor

      Are all you idiots listening to the PURE LOGIC that Shoalib is dropping here? Please refute his arguments if you can? PLEASE!

  • Daniel

    I don’t think it’s fair to draw too many comparisons between the two. Jordan and Kobe played against different teams in different era’s.

    I think most people agree that Jordan is the best of all time (offense and defense). And I’m a die-hard Kobe fan since he came off the bench his first year in the league. Both are epic.The only problem Jordan had was that he was on the wrong team. Let’s get just get back to winning.

    BTW what’s up with Magic? Bring some of that big investment capital, sway with players, and some of that magic to the Lakers where it belongs. We Bleed Purple and Gold!

  • NaughtyProfessor

    My bad Gianni, I was pissed…. Yeah he was very good and I agreed with ya….

  • Carl Lee Bonner II

    Some comments people say on this site are asinine to say the least! The object of the article was trash talking between two of the greatest to ever lace em up. Not how old Jordan was or if the Lakers went to the playoffs that year. The first thing the article references is the comment Kobe made to Jordan about him killing him one on one when they first met. And yes, regardless of what any of you say, Kobe Bryant is top 10 all time! Just ask Michael and Magic and Larry and Doc and Chuck and Kareem and Dominic and etc etc etc…

  • Edrosel Ricaplaza Encontro-naw

    Kobe is Lakers! Lakers is Kobe!

  • Chris Ross

    Jordan had no business being on the floor that day. Kobe reminded him that day too. By scoring 55 points. Defend MJ all you want, he’s still one of the best I’ve seen in my life time and you’re lying to yourself if you say you can’t say the same about Kobe. Even MJ respects his game.

  • Shoaib Mohamed

    When Jordan joined Chicago Bulls 1984-85, the team was just coming off a season in which they had they 2nd worst record in the NBA with 27 wins and 55 losses. This is the team that Michael Jordan would transform into a World Champion team just 7 years later and in the years that ensued immediately after, he would elevate this team to become one of the greatest sporting dynasties (if not the greatest) of all time in sports history. In the process he would relentlessly push his average team-mates to become better ball players and convert some of them into superstars as well. Every knows what an incredible scorer Jordan was and how he lifted his play to another level like never seen before (or will again) in the post season and how he converted the NBA finals into his own personal
    showpiece. What is remarkable though is the impact he had on the defensive end while dropping 30 plus a night in the regular season and 33 a night in the post season.

    Jordan is the only play in NBA history to record over a 100 steals and 100 blocks in two separate seasons and he did so while dropping 37 points per game in one of those seasons and 35 points per game in the other season. Jordan played on a team where no other player was frequently double teamed (Like Shaq in LA or Wade in Miami). In fact Jordan was the only player in the Bulls team that was almost always double and triple teamed as opponents fearlessly dared the other Bulls to beat them.

    When Kobe won his 1st Championship he was being coached by a coach that had already won 6 world championships with the greatest player of all time and Kobe also had the luxury of hiding behind one of the top two big men ever in NBA history and the best big man in the league at the time in Shaq (Finals MVP in 3 of Kobe’s 5 championships and regular season MVP in one of those Championships that Shaq delivered for him) who had already taken a team to the NBA final and was the reason why Kobe won 3 of those 5 championships and if that was not enough they also were loaded with 3 point snipers like Fischer, Horry (already a NBA champion), Shaw, Glen Rice etc, etc and on the bench were Ron Harper, Horrace Grant and John Salley all of whom were multiple NBA champions. Lebron constipated in Cleveland for 9 years failed to get the job done and abandoned his city and joined another Super Team which already had a NBA champion and finals MVP in Dwayne Wade in addition to Bosh, Allen and so on.

    Like I mentioned before Jordan came into a team that had the 2nd worse record in the NBA and was surrounded by average (at best) players that he pushed and converted into top players. Scottie “Migraine” Pippen grew a pair and became a great all round player thanks to Jordan and that is what Jordan did to his other team mates as well. They were nobody’s when then joined him but by playing alongside him they all became better ball players and some even great ball players. Phil Jackson was a coach that had proved nothing when he took over the Bulls but all that changed as he sat and watched on the side lines greatest ever player in sports history carry his team on his back and win, win and win. That is the set-up from which Michael Jordan began his journey in the golden era of basketball when the game was still a man’s game with a far more physical style of play on show and put the Bulls and the NBA on the world map.

    The above is just a sneak peak of Michael Jordan’s phenomenal resume that is simply and utterly incomparable not just in NBA history but in all of sports as well. Hence, the reason why Michael Jordan is not just the greatest basketball player of all time but also the greatest ever to play any sport. It is fricking blasphemous for anyone to be compared to Michael Jordan let alone a joker like Kobe. Deluded Kobe fans instead of resorting to cowardice tactics such as smashing their keyboards and abusing in raw filth those that say what their pee brains find hard to comprehend, need to worry more about a like for like comparison such as the Lebron James comparison with Kobe and the fact that pretty much the entire world in unison agrees that Lebron is a better player than Kobe.

      Jordan’s the GOAT. But you have to give credit to whom credit is due. Even Jordan himself respected Kobe’s game. I hate Lebron as a person, but that doesn’t stop me from acknowledging he’s a monster on the court.

      Be rational, man.

      Game, set and match!!!! Brilliant said! That’s as good as one can put it and I urge all the dumb ass Kobe lovers to give themselves an education by reading the above assuming of course they are capable of reading.
