Sports Report 360:
Michael Jordan versus Kobe Bryant. Air versus the evolution of Bean into the modern day Black Mamba. Over the course of his 16 year Bryant has not only reminded the world just how ahead of his time Jordan was on the hardwood, but also on January 22th, 2006, he proved no player in NBA history can go into a prolonged shooting zone like he did with a scintillating 81 point performance against the Toronto Raptors. While the debate will continue to rage on as to who was the better player, undeniably both men left fans equally amazed with their on court exploits. By watching this video you get a chance to eliminate all biases by letting the visual evidence speak for itself. Is imitation just a form of flattery or does it prove just how similar these players are? Maybe both. You decide and enjoy the show.
