Chris Palmer will take Kobe over Jordan any day…
Monday night, ESPN NBA analyst, Chris Palmer, tweeted the question “Who’s Better: Kevin Durant or Kobe Bryant?” In response to replies to his tweet, Palmer said, “I like so much more about Durant’s game right now. But last 2 minutes I’ll take Kobe over anyone.”
Palmer followed up that tweet with this gem. “I’ll take Kobe over Jordan in the clutch. No question.“ Hmm that’s interesting Chris. Just wondering, did you ever see Jordan play? You know, the best player in NBA history? The best player on the best team in NBA history? Maybe you should check your facts before sending out a ridiculous claim like that.
Here are a few stats…MJ won 6 titles as the best player on his team. He also won 5 MVPs and 6 NBA Final MVPs. Kobe has 5 titles, 3 of which were with Shaq. He also won only 1 MVP and 2 NBA Final MVPs.
And just for good measure, take a look at one of the most clutch plays in NBA history….courtesy of Mr. Jordan. Game winner against the Utah Jazz, game 6 of the NBA finals.
