Here’s What Michael Jordan Said About Kobe In 1998

Cameron LeBlanc

Turns out, Michael Jordan thought Kobe Bryant was the jam way back in the day.


Before the 1998 NBA All-Star game, Michael Jordan shot the shit with his Eastern Conference teammates. It would be his final All-Star appearance as a Chicago Bull, but the topic of conversation isn’t All-Star weekends past or the goings-on in the NBA that year. Instead, Jordan shared his thoughts on the 19-year-old Laker making his All-Star game debut that night.

Kobe Bryant might have been the youngest player in the NBA at the time, but a clip from the fifth episode of The Last Dance proves that he’d earned the attention of the best player in the league.
