It’s a timeless debate that never gets old among NBA fans: Kobe Bryant or LeBron James—which superstar will finish his career closer to Michael Jordan?

There is nothing like a good, healthy debate of the merits of two of the greatest players to ever play in the NBA, especially when you’re talking about which one will wind up closer to the greatest to ever play this game in Jordan.

Watch as NBA Assistant Editors Ethan Norof and Joel Cordes go head to head in the debate to determine which star will finish his playing days with more MJ comparisons.
