Previously on TNLP, we posted a story where NBA legend Michael Jordan commented that Lakers star Kobe Bryant stole some of his moves when coming into the league.
Recently, Kobe was on LA’s Power 106 FM and when being interviewed by host Big Boy, Bryant states that he believes that Michael stole some of his famous moves from other NBA legends:
“I’m a student of the game, you know, so I know the history; I know where Michael’s moves came from,’ said Bryant about stealing moves. ‘I know they came from David Thompson. I know they came from Dr. J. I know they came from, in particular, Jerry West. So Michael didn’t invent the wheel. He stole a lot of moves from a lot of great players. I just so happened to steal some moves from him, and I just probably stole them better than anybody else has. You have to learn from the greats that came before you, that’s how it should be done.’
