In NBA today , Kobe Bryant is the best player , and he is the player the most like Michael Jordan . Many people always like discuss whos is better between Kobe and jordan . Recently , when Kobe answered some reporter the same question , Kobe said that he really want to beat the young Jordan , such as 1993′s Jordan and 1998′s Jordan , but it is impossible . Kobe still mention that he learn so much from Michael Jordan , when he was a boy , he begin learn Michael Jordan’s skills from TV and VCD . In all Jordan’s skills , Jordan’s shooting skill is the most important ability , though many experts thought that Jordan’s shooting is too weak , for example Jordan’s flat arc of jumpshot .
Kobe learn Michael Jordan’s shooting movement several years , Kobe’s shooting movement is the most like MJ’s in the NBA now . I just remember that when Kobe first join NBA , I was notice him , not only because he VS. MJ in 1998′s NBA all-star game , but also for Kobe’s movement like MJ’s so much . Though he was too young , MJ beat Kobe fully , but Kobe’s fighting will I still remember clearly today , I know Kobe would be a super star in future .
In 1999 , NBA in the wage storm , all players have much time just because the season was shorter than before . Many players fall down because of lazy , Shawn Kemp for example . But in this year , Kobe was work hard with T-mac in the court of Kobe’s house . Kobe was progress much in the time . He borrowed 2 VCD disks from Gary Payton in the summer, when Gary Payton got back the disks after 3 months , he found the VCD dicks cannot be play just because Kobe watched them too much times .
Kobe’s shooting skills and movement is enhanced year by year , even in this year , Kobe is still improve his shooting movement .
But though Kobe work so hard to learn from MJ , even he is older than 30 , he still have many points cannot catch up MJ . I will show you the most clear and important differences between MJ and Kobe , and I will show you why I said that Kobe still cannot keep pace with Michael Jordan .
The first point : Left arm
Just see the pic below :
As the Pic shows , Kobe’s left arm moved a long distance when he was shooting . Just begin of the ball up to his head , and shoot the ball out , his left arm moved forward much .
Next , let’s check MJ’s shooting pic , to compare with Kobe’s :
On this photo , we can see MJ’s left arm almost stay , just move a little . This two pics just Static Figure , now let us see the Dynamic Image :
In these two gif pics , we can see the differences clearly between Jordan and Kobe’s shooting movement . We can see that MJ’s left arm really just move little , nearly stay , but Kobe’s left arm really move much forward .
Now let me explain why this point so important . As we know , the modern basketball shooting is one hand shooting , it means we just use one hand to shoot a ball , the other hand just support the ball to make it stay on the right hand . Why we use one hand to shoot ? This just because one hand is better to shoot the ball in a line , just as we play darts .
So we just need one arm make power to shoot a basketball . But in the modern NBA , the most basketball players are used to catch the ball with two hands , that’s all right , but because of this , gradually , all players are have the same problem , almost all players the second hand always give the ball a power when they are shooting .
Because of this , some smart NBA players has always improve their second hand movement and skill , to make the second arm disturb the one hand shooting as less as they can . Here are many methods to done this , I will show you in my posts here in future . Now we just learn how to check the correct movement . In these pics , you can see , the left arm was turn forward after shooting , this depend the distance of the left arm turn forward . The left arm turn to the front more length , that means the left arm use more power , then it should be disturb your shooting more .
Let’s check the pics again , you can see them carefully , MJ’s left arm really moved forward less than Kobe’s , you can see Kobe’s left arm really give the ball a big power when shooting , so the ball will be not a pure straight trajectory . So in the same status , Jordan’s shooting field goal percentage will higher than Kobe’s .
Just because this , Kobe should still work hard to improve the left arm movement and skills , to enhance the field goal percentage . But to improve this point is really hard , though he is Kobe , he will take much time to do this .
The second point : Waist
This is also a important point , but no need too much words , just let me show you the deficiency .
First let us see the two pics below :
You can see the green lines on the pics , Kobe’s back formed a “<"pattern , Jordan's is ">” . This means Kobe’s upper body is backwards too much , this is always because the player dodge a block . This may be not really can dodge a block , but make you lose your own center of gravity , then he will feel more difficult to make power than the normal status .
If you use this movement too much , even in your shooting training , your right elbow will rise too much length when shooting , then you will hard to shooting a ball with a straight trajectory .
Let us see MJ’s waist , you can find Michael Jordan really done perfect , you will easy to shoot a basketball with straight trajectory and high arc . You will have a good field percentage in a basketball game .
This post I just stop here , I think after read these words , you can know why I said Kobe has not catch up Michael Jordan .
In my next post , I will tell you the top secret of Kobe and MJ’s wrist band . Just wait .
