INFOGRAPHIC: Kobe, 8 vs 24
MANILA, Philippines - 8 vs 24.
Kobe Bryant will always be compared to Michael Jordan and LeBron James. All three are great players in their own way, in their own time.
With the Black Mamba visiting the Philippines for the 6th time, we stack him up against himself. The younger, more athletic Kobe who wore jersey number 8, and the older but still deadly Kobe who now wears jersey number 24.
