Jordan Files #5 – vs. Kobe 1998 ASG

It just wouldn’t be the Jordan Files without a dual with Kobe Bryant. While Jordan is still considered the greatest of all-time, there’s no doubt a few (deluded) fans actually put Kobe at the top of the heap.

While it’s truly impossible to compare players from (even partially) different eras, this is a fun video for all who enjoy this “debate”. The 1998 NBA All Star Game was a fun one and it featured an undertone of MJ vs. Kobe.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a young Kobe Bryant vs. wise and not yet too old Michael Jordan.

Just for fun, note the reaction from Bryant when Jordan practically coughs up a lung early in this video.
