A YouTube user just finished the final instalment of a three-part series of short videos that highlight the play-by-play similarities between Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. It’s incredible to see just how much Kobe adopted from Jordan’s game.

Not only has Kobe clearly modelled his moves off of Jordan’s arsenal — he’s mimicked his mannerisms, too. Everything from finger pointing, to sticking out his tongue while dunking, to talking the exact same trash, if Jordan did it, Kobe’s done it, too.
Here are a few GIFs from the third instalment of the series:
