Roland Lazenby is a legendary writer and is currently working on a new Michael Jordan book. This is what he had to say about Michael Jordan comparisons and Kobe Bryant.
“Kobe’s ultimate competition is MJ. That’s why MJ watches him. MJ made people think what he was doing wasn’t human. Ditto the Kobester.”
“I never said Kobe was better than MJ. MJ just told me Kobe’s the only one to have done the work, to deserve comparison.”
