When the Lakers took on the Hornets on Feb. 4, Kobe Bryant played in his 1,072 career regular season game. Michael Jordan played 1,072 career regular season games.
Kobe is in the midst of his 15th season and Jordan played in 15 different seasons (over a 19-year span).
This is the absolute perfect time to compare the two players' career numbers.
We will compare the two players' numbers in 21 different categories, and they are: Games Played, Games Started, Minutes Played, Field Goals Made, Field Goals Attempted, Field Goal Percentage, Free Throws Made, Free Throws Attempted, Free Throw Percentage, Three-Pointers Made, Three-Pointers Attempted, Three-Point Percentage, Offensive Rebounds, Defensive Rebounds, Total Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, Turnovers, Personal Fouls and Total Points.
This way, we will see how close Bryant got to his idol at up to 1,072 games played.
