Lakers coach Phil Jackson compared Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan on Tuesday night, noting the differences between the two offensively.

"They're two of a kind competitively," Jackson, who has coached both to championships, said. "Kobe's probably a better outside shooter, Michael a better post-up player."

Has Phil forgotten those Jordan heroics so quick? I mean it's not even close, why would he say Kobe is a better shooter? In my opinion, Jordan is a better shooter.

Kobe is the better shooter. However, Jordan was the better post up player, better penetrator and better overall offensive player.

Um, okay, what does it matter if Jordan was still way better in just about everything?

Jordan was CLUTCH... I don't care about %'s he was flat out the better shooter

MJ made the shots when the team needed them.... people need to stop comparing the two including Phil Jackson. MJ was great and Kobe is great now...

MJ is a Legend but Kobe is a Legend in the making

I think Kobe had more range, but Jordan was just pure clutch.

maybe a better three point shooter kobe is but as charles barkley once said, jordan never needed that aspect of the game to succeed. if he needed it he would of developed it more. jordan was definitely the better mid range shooter, driver, and defensively was way better. the comparisons need to stop cause no one in the league right now iwll ever amount up to what jordan did or ever will. kobe needs to even win a championship by himself without shaq to even beable to even mentioned one of the greatest ever.

Phil is a master motivator. He will say whatever he needs to in order to instill confidence in his players, whether it is true or not. I think they are similar shooters, MJ was a much, much better finisher, and a better defender
