different time and a different era, who was Jordan's 2nd place competition through his career in the 90's? Hmm let see, Clyde Drexler and thats it! During Kobe's era, there was, who, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady,Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson, im sure im missing a few 2-3's in there. Lets also not forget that Kobe's pretty much always had to guard the best guy on th other team when thy were playing top tier teams. Jordan didnt have too, yes, he could, but why tire him out even more when you could have Scottie do it better.
90's are so ****ing over rated. Yes, JOrdan is the greatest, but he didnt have to go up against the level of competition that the game had had for about 10 years now. Now days you got players coming from all over that are really good.
