Not really. Back then when MJ shot the turn around fade away from the post, that sh*t was automatic. You knew it was going in as soon as he shot it. You were actually more shocked when he missed.
Kobe's fade away jumper from the post is a little suspect. As good as Kobe is, he's not automatic like Mike was.
this is true beyond words....
this video takes me back to bein young
its tough to explain some of the intangibles MJ had that Kobe lacks (no diss at all, if you watched both play you'll know exactly what im saying)
MJ had the ability to will his team to win, you knew that sh*t was going down, you knew he was gonna go to his back down fadeaway and you knew there was nothing the other team was gonna do to stop that sh*t.... MJ was stronger in the post than Kobe, and had slightly better footwork
there are some qualities that MJ had that will never be replicated in another player, and that is what made him truly special to watch
