Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant didn't get along too well during Howard's stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, but that hasn't impacted Howard's view of Kobe as a player. In fact, Dwight believe Kobe is better than Michael Jordan.

During an appearance on Gilbert Arenas' "The No Chill Gil" podcast, Howard shared his opinion that "everything Jordan did on the basketball court, Kobe did better." 

Of course, Howard's opinion isn't factually correct, at all. Although Kobe has more career points than MJ, His Airness has the Black Mamba beat in almost every category including championships (6 > 5), MVP Awards (4 > 1) and scoring titles (10 > 2), as well as career points per game, assists per game, rebounds per game and steals per game.

That's not to say Kobe isn't one of the greatest players and a first ballot Hall of Famer, because he is, but saying he did "everything" better than MJ is delusional. Maybe Dwight is just still trying to get on Kobe's good side.
