Six time NBA champion, 10 scoring titles and a five time MVP—Michael Jordan.
Five time NBA champion (three were not even led by him), two time scoring champion, one MVP, and a terrible performance in the 2010 finals shooting 6-24—Kobe Bryant.
No NBA titles: LeBron James.
There is really no comparison when comparing so-called superstars LeBron James and Kobe Bryant to the greatest player in basketball history.
Going by raw statistics, Jordan has a career field goal percentage of .497, while Kobe and LeBron have .455 and .475. He averaged 2.3 steals, but Kobe and LeBron only averaged 1.5 and 1.7.
Michael was also able to be clutch in the playoffs, where he averaged 33.4 points and had six finals MVP's. Kobe only averaged 25.5.
LeBron only averages 29.3 and is not clutch when it matters because he has yet to win a title.
Michael Jordan was so good that he was able to retire, play minor league baseball, come back and win three more titles. I don't see Kobe or LeBron swinging a bat then winning three titles in a row.
I know I'm comparing someone who's already finished his career and two that aren't even close, but even when there careers are over, there still won't even be an argument.
