I want to get an honest opinion on who's ers had the better deffenders on the perimeter. If i forgot anyone please add.


Kobe Defenders:

Durant 6''9
Lebron 6''9
AK47: 6''9
Prince 6''9
Battier 6''8
Chandler 6'8
Outlaw: 6''8
Marion 6''8
Pierce: 6''8
Posey 6''8
Johnson: 6''8
Harrington: 6''8
Bowen 6''7
Artest: 6''7
K.Martin 6''8
Bell: 6''5
Davis: 6''4


Jordan Defenders:

Russell 6''7
Ehlo: 6''6
Payton: 6''4
Ainge: 6''4
Dumars: 6'3
Starks 6"3

Kobe faces better more bigger, stronger, athletic players night in and night out against zone defenses (illegal in Jordan's day). All the elite defenders of the 80s were 6'4" and under.


Typical SG's jordan faced 6''2 -6''5, alot more white players
Typical SG Kobe faces 6''5-6''9, alot less white defenders

MJ faced the likes of Craig Ehlo, Byron Scott, Danny Ainge, Jeff Hornacek, Jeff Malone, Ron Harper, Ricky Pierce, Clyde Drexler, John Starks, Voshon Lenard, Eddie Jones, Vinny Del Negro, Rolando Blackman, Sleepy Floyd, Reggie Lewis, Joe Dumars, Mitch Richmond, Reggie Miller, Penny Hardaway,
Mitch Richmond, John Starks, Steve Smith, Gerald Wilkins, Bernard King, Reggie Theus, Ricky Pierce, Reggie Miller, Joe Dumars, Rex Chapman, Reggie Lewis, Hersey Hawkins, Willie Anderson, Jeff Malone, Vernon Maxwell, Nick Anderson, Tony Campbell, Rolando Blackmon, Reggie Williams, Jeff Hornacek, Vinny Del Negro, Nate McMillan, Ron Harper, Rory Sparrow, Kendall Gill, Stacy Augmon, Dan Majerle, Eddie Jones, David Wesley, Rex Walters, Jim Jackson, J.R. Rider, Calbert Cheaney, Kerry Kittles, and Bobby Phills, etc


Kobe faces likes of Dwyane Wade, Lebron James, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Ray Allen, Cuttino Mobley, Corey Maggette, Carmleo Anthony, Jason Richardson, Manu Ginobili, Reggie Miller (post prime), Raja Bell, Allen Iverson, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Scottie Pippen (post prime), Richard Jefferson, Rip Hamilton, J.R Smith, Shawn Marion, James Posey, Bruce Bowen, Ron Artest, Raja Bell, Tayshawn Prince, Shane battier, Andre Kirelinko, Brandon Roy, Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler, Bo Outlaw, Kenyon Martin, Chanucey Billups, Jason Kidd, Josh Howard, etc

What is your point with this thread exactly? If you are trying to say that Kobe is better than MJ, then you, my friend are :crazy:

The best 4 each of them faced:

Kobe: Doug Christie, Bowen, Artest, Battier

Jordan: Payton, Ehlo, Russell, Dumars

I would say overall Kobe's faced the better defenders. Jordan saw more of Payton, the toughest of the bunch, than Kobe, but overall I think Kobe's defenders have been better.

Not sure what the point of this thread it is though.

Its no question, Jordan had a tougher time and just simply made it look easy
