Kobe Bryant vs Michael Jordan - Identical Plays: The Last Dance (Part III)
For the past two summers, YouTuber Youssef Hannoun has released mashup videos comparing the moves of two of the best basketball players in history, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
On Wednesday, Youssef released the part three of the series entitled “Kobe Bryant vs. Michael Jordan - Identical Plays: The Last Dance.” After watching the two-minute video, it’s even more clear how eerily similar their playing styles are to one another.
We all know that Kobe modeled his game after the six-time NBA Finals champion; I mean, who wouldn’t want to emulate the guy who's unanimously known as the greatest player to touch a basketball?
But in this case, the similarities are scary and almost supernatural.
Watching the video montage is actually like watching a game of H-O-R-S-E between the guys who are generally considered the top two players to ever play the game. It features highlights of Jordan making a shot, followed by footage of Bryant making the exact same move, with the exact same result.
Not even just once… over and over, and over. Kobe is even seen sticking his tongue out in signature Jordan fashion.
Last October, M.J. jokingly accused Kobe of stealing his moves. When asked who would win a game of one-on-one, he cheekily replied, "I don't think I'd lose other than Kobe Bryant because he steals all my moves."
You might be on to something there Mike...
