Man... it was crazy, I remember it all. When Kobe drove for that layup, I knew he wasn't going to be blocked and it was going in... the boy went hella high off the glass, swish. When he came down the court, drove to his right and faded.... I knew it was a swish. Game. I was screamin like a bi*ch son.
Kobe surpassed Larry in every facet in the game of basketball.
The only people who can argue with this are either stuck in the past, or love the Larry vs. Magic storyline too much to concede.
Kobe is my Fave player of all time...but to say he's surpassed bird in Every facet is a bit of hyperbole...Bird is a Better Rebounder and a Better Passer ( Vision for Angles and Willingness to actually pass) Than Kobe Ever will be he also became a Leader much faster than Kobe did He's a better shooter obviously. They are pretty equal when it comes to having the k!ller Instinct...Its close and Kobe has done it for a longer Period of time but im still on the side of Larry for a few more years but im sure that by the Time Bean Retires he will have surpassed him...
