Jordan vs Kobe: the After 15 Seasons Series: FG%

1 of 18

    This is the first installment in the After 15 Seasons Series. This fun, exciting, debate-inducing series examines Michael vs Kobe in each category year, by year, by year.

    Since Kobe just finished his 15th season this is an optimal time to have fun by comparing their stats in every category. Michael also played in 15 different seasons. In two of those seasons (his third and 10th) Jordan played less than 18 games. In his last two he was age 39 and 40. 

    It's just fun to compare these guys. The guy that wins the slide gets the photo.
