Nick Van Exel also gave his Bryant-Jordan anecdote, saying that he lent highlight VHS tapes of Jordan to Bryant, who wanted to get his hands on anything

Everything that MJ did, Kobe did, like chewing the gum, the walking, the moves, the footwork. I used to have VHS tapes back in the day full of highlights of Michael Jordan. Kobe asked to borrow them, and Ive never seen those tapes again, Van Exel said.

Much like Jordan, Van Exel said he immediately saw the swag and confidence that Bryant had at just 18 years old when hebroke into the NBA.

Though many still believe Jordan to be the best player in NBA history, Bryant has been brought up in that conversation.

In 20 NBA seasons, Bryant collected 18 All-Star Game bids, including 17 straight from 1999 to his final year in 2015. Hes a five-time NBA champion with the Lakers, 15-time All-NBA selection, the 2007-08 MVP, two-time Finals MVP and two-time scoring champion, just to name a few accolades.

However, Jordan has Bryant beat by one ring, never losing in an NBA Finals series over his career. Jordan was also MVP of the league five times to Bryants one, though Bryant has him beat in All-NBA nods (Jordan had 11).

Theres no doubting the similarities in their game play, though, as Van Exel pointed out the mannerism even being the same let alone the moves on the court.

Jordan was a role model to many, but Bryant is his most accomplished in the NBA to date.

Jordan would speak at Bryants memorial in Los Angeles following his death and the death of his daughter, Gianna, in a helicopter accident.

In the game of basketball, in life as a parent, Kobe left nothing in the tank. He left it all on the floor. Maybe it surprised people that Kobe and I were very close friends. But we were very close friends. Kobe was my dear friend, he was like a little brother. Everyone always wanted to talk about the comparison between he and I. I just wanted to talk about Kobe, he said.
