Remember the talks who is better – Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant? Well, MJ thought that Kobe could never be that great.
Gilbert Arenas told The No Chill Podcast that Michael Jordan said to Kobe after a Wizards/Lakers game that he could wear the shoes but “never fill them.”
According to Arenas, Kobe got so mad at Jordan’s comment that he didn’t speak to teammates for two weeks.
When the Lakers played the Wizards again, Kobe dropped 55 points.
