VIDEO: Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant making identical plays

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

We're always finding a way to compare a new superstar with Michael Jordan, who is widely accepted as the greatest basketball player anybody has ever seen. The most common comparison is future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. They have similar looking games, similar movements, and a similar will on the court that often brings about the comparison.

While some people still debate whether or not Kobe Bryant can reach Michael Jordan's level of greatness over a career by possibly winning a sixth championship, we can at least check out video mashups of these two greats making plays in almost mirror images of one another. Youssef Hannoun created a video last year with the comparisons but the video above is his second go-round with such an attempt.

Enjoy.
