Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant
Debate Rounds (4)
Micheal Jordan- http://espn.go.com...
Kobe Bryant- http://espn.go.com...
A. Highest Points per game list by season. (with Field Goal Percentage)
1. 35.4, 45% 3005-2006
2. 31.6, 46.3% 2006-2007
3. 30.0, 45.1% 2002-2003
1. 37.1, 48.2% 1986-1987
2. 35.0, 53.5% 1987-1988
3. 33.6, 52.6 1989-1990
Just from this you can tell Micheal Jordan was a better shooter. In addition Micheal Jordan's career scoring average is 30.1 Points per game, while in Kobe's 3rd highest scoring year he averaged 30.0 points Per Game, not to forgot Jordan shot 49.7% while Kobe has currently shot 45.4% in his career.
In total Micheal Jordan averaged 6.3 rebounds per game, while Kobe only averaged 5.2. Some say this is only because Micheal Jordan is taller, I think not because he also averaged less turnovers per game despite being the taller player. ( MJ= 2.7 KB- 3)
Pro has already stated all of Micheal Jordan's good teammates, but Rodman also played alongside Kobe Bryant.
Had amazing talent alongside through his career that led him to championships.

Pro argues that Kobe is better because he won more awards, but Kobe skipped college and went straight to the NBA while Micheal Played for North Carolina for 2 years. In addition Micheal Jordan left the NBA for 2 years while in pursuit of a Baseball career to avenge his father's death.
So in reality Jordan could have won more awards if he played in NBA while in college and played in the NBA while playing Baseball. I would also like to suggest that we have a 3 round debate and list a closing sentence in round 4.
You also mentioned that Kobe had talent around him on the court, and you even had a list. First, Glen Rice was only good in college (Michigan). Second, Dennis Rodman wasn't on the Lakers. Yes, I agree with Derek Fisher, but Pau Gasol has slumped, Lamar Odom was always involved with he Kardashians. So, basically Kobe has been by himself mentally on the court. Just him and Phil Jackson.
And, by the way you misspelled Michael every time.
"So in reality Jordan could have won more awards if he played in NBA"
Jordan didn't need to be dominant as a Wizard, he had nothing left to prove to the world he won 6 titles in NBA finals appearances, however he did much better than decent, even in his final year he averaged 20.0 Points per game, 44.5% shooting, 82.1% from the free Throw line, 6.1 rebounds per game, and only 2.1 turnovers which was the lowest in his career. I wonder how you call this decent at the age of 40 in a league dominated by shooting guards who all wanted to be like Mike. ( Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, Tracy Mcgrady, Allan Houston, Reggie Miller, Vince Carter, Larry Hughes, ETC.)
1. Glen Rice averaged 18.3 points per game in his career, to put that into perspective Pippen averaged 16.1 a game.

2. Dennis Rodman did play for the Lakers for 1 season and was a big influence to Kobe Bryant and averaged 1.2 Rebounds per game as a Laker below you will find 2 highlight videos.
3. wow, you didn't even refute Derek Fisher.
4. Paul Gasol has averages 18.4 points and 9.2 Rebounds per game, and even now he had a bad year only because of injuries, and Earl Clark taking some of his playing time. ( 13.7 points per game, 8.6 rebounds per game)
5. Lamar Odom is one of Kobe's closest friends and has always been available mentally for Kobe
6. I would like a reply to my round suggestion,
7. Spelling and Grammar errors are easy to find, I'll use a quote from you for an example.
"Good points and you brought great facts. But, you mentioned Michael Jordan could've done better if he didn't go to college or go to the MLB?"
you should have said-
Good points and you brought great facts, but you mentioned Michael Jordan could've done better if he didn't go to college and/or the MLB?

in point 2, I meant to say Dennis Rodman averaged 11.2 Rebounds per game, not 1.2. I would hope voters can tell who proved who was better than who, in short
