After Michael Jordan finally quits NBA- the search is on if who will be his successor of his throne. Many players are considered to replace his throne, but until this time no one stands out in the league like what Michael Jordan did in his time in NBA. Fans are tired of looking and stop searching, instead looking for some with similarly dominant player.
LeBron James used Jordan’s jersey 23 when he was drafted in the League. But he was considered as failure. Because he did not meet the example set by Michael Jordan. Lebron’s talent was criticized and ruined by last year season when Miami Heat failed to win the championship title.
These days there are copiousness of great players in the NBA, but no one of them directly compared to Michael Jordan. However, the skywalker Jordan says only one player comes enough to his greatness to worth his comparison. With out surprise, that player is Kobe Bryant. This information comes from Roland Lazenby, a great writer presently working on a Jordan book.
Below are Roland Lazenby’s tweets:
Kobe’s ultimate competition is MJ. That’s why MJ watches him. MJ made people think what he was doing wasn’t human. Ditto the Kobester.
I never said Kobe was better than MJ. MJ just told me Kobe’s the only one to have done the work, to deserve comparison.
Job well-done Kobe: Your hard work has meant something. All the time spent on mimicking Jordan’s movement and skills has paid off. Good thing the skywalker acknowledges you. You mad it. Keep on doing Kobe.
