This is amazing. And, while it won't do anything to quell the Michael Jordan vs. Kobe Bryant debate that's been going on for years now, it will show MJ and Kobe fans just how similar these two played on the basketball court over the years. We'd also like to point out that the guy who edited this clip together deserves some sort of award. He must have spent entire days of his life watching clips of both guys just to find the nearly identical plays that you see here. Very well done.
