Ex teammate of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, John Salley, stopped by the SportsNation set to tell some interesting stories about Kobe’s work ethic and desire to be the greatest and then participated in a game of MJ vs Kobe.
As for my picks,
Best Dunk: Kobe’s on Dwight is a better dunk than MJ’s 38th (I’m exaggerating) time dunking on Ewing but the MJ dunk was a better and more memorable play.
Best Fight: It’s a draw. Neither could fight.
Best Block: MJ easily but the clip in the video wont do the highlight justice. This play came during the preseason as MJ, now a Wizard, was taking on his old team. After he blocked Ron Mercer he shouted at him as Mercer ran down the court and the Chicago crowd acted as if the players were on opposite teams.
Worst Outfit: Kobe’s was funnier but it was for a photoshoot. MJ bought and put on his outfit. Not only is MJ the GOAT of basketball but he arguably has the GOAT collection of bad baggy jeans with holes in them.
