During a meandering conversation on The Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, Reggie Miller made the claim that Michael Jordan was a much, much better basketball player than Kobe Bryant could ever hope to be (skip ahead to the 5:16 mark in the video clip above.)
Miller paid his respects to Bryant earlier in the week when he passed MJ for third on the NBA’s all-time scoring list:
Congrats to the Black Mamba (Kobe) on passing the Black Cat (MJ), two of the best to ever do it.. #GreatnessPersonified

Reggie and Kobe have some history, of course, famously throwing down following a Pacers-Lakers game back in 2002.
(The ever-combative Miller also brawled with Mike in 1993.)
