In order to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. In order to beat the best, you’ve got to have better moves than the best.

Kobe Bryant understands exactly that, so while growing up he followed the foot steps of none other than Michael Jordan – the greatest to ever step on a hard court.

In a recent interview, Jordan talked about who he could beat in a game of one-on-one. Out of all the greats, he only mentioned Bryant as the one who could give him a run for his money. The reason? Simply put, “because he steals all of my moves.”

The GOAT is a smooth operator. If there is one thing he’s still got, it’s the trash talking game.

Upon hearing Jordan’s statement, Bryant wasted no time in taking to Twitter on Tuesday, providing fans with one of the most honest tweets you will ever see.

It is, in fact, a domino effect. One player busts a move, then the next player tries to do it better. As humans, we are always striving for greatness.

    Wow! Kobe has become a most diplomatic guy in his later years. Kudos to him for being honest notwithstanding the fact that MJ only made these comments to keep himself “relevant.” He(Jordan) is wise enough to know that he still has a product to sale so why not go after the currant NBA stars…thus keeping himself RELEVANT!!!
