We see how Kobe was able to put his ego aside, reduce his scoring and start facilitating a whole lot more. It's something I quite honestly would have never thought possible for one of the game's greatest scorers ever.

Do you think that if Jordan was in his position, he'd be able to put everything aside, and start facilitating? And more importantly, would he facilitate with as much success as Kobe?

MJ and Kobe are winners even more so then they are scorers. MJ would've found a way.

Its always hard comparing Kobe and Jordan in any aspect. Although if you ask me Kobe despite maybe not having 6 rings and several other accomplishments that Jordan has achieved, the era Kobe has played in and dominated is much much much more competitive and tougher then that of Jordan. Kobe has always been able to facilitate and is an exceptional passer at his position. I don't think Jordan would ever accept that role being that he was such an amazing scorer.

What many people may forget is that Jordan played near and within the era of NBA "expansion teams". Look up more on them if you don't know but I feel like that was one of the reasons for the Bulls great success.

In 1989 Jordan did the same thing actually, I posted about it a while back. He was averaging a near triple double around the end of the season.

It's not about ego, its about doing what you think you need to do to help your team win.

Kobe shouldn't have to spoonfeed everyone but it seems he does. So instead of being a pure scorer playing his true position, he's doing a lot more facilitating...

And yeah , Jordan would be just as willing to do what it takes to win.

no, Jordan is a real deal

He doesn't have to change his style to win the game.
