Kobe had the athleticism to physically dominate virtually every player he came up against like Jordan did. Booker can on limited occasions but neither as consistently nor as completely as those two.How is it that Kobe played like Jordan
Booker plays like Kobe but Booker does not play like Jordan
I am a fan of all 3 but it's odd to me
Don't forget the defensive end. Booker is at least 2 steps down on Jordan / Kobe on that end. Could be about the athleticism that Ouchie mentioned but I don't think Booker will ever get to those guys' level defensively.
Here you go:
The dude was just sickening. Sometimes I watch old school greats and wonder if they'd be as great playing in today's game. I watch Jordan and just think, "That's not fair". Nobody played like young Jordan. There's no comparison.
Some David Thompson highlights. Maybe I'm bias in favor of Jordan, but it's not close at all for me.
tonight's Nets game epitomizes why i want out of Booker. he hasn't got the bb-iq to lead a team to a championship and never will
he's been bumbling the ball all season trying to break through double teams in crunch time
unless he can learn from Paul and the Suns become real contenders, i'd trade him for a young, solid star or a top pick when Paul leaves.
oh, and Booker's leadership flaw may be why the refs don't seem to respect him. he certainly doesn't get the abundance of calls that other aggressive stars get, and when the refs do blow the whistle it's too often an offensive foul on him.
