Exclusive: Kobe Says That He’s The 2nd Best Player In NBA History
A lot of people like to claim that Kobe is the best ever (present company not included) but where does the Black Mamba think he ranks in the debate?
Our cameras picked up this conversation between Kobe and NBA journeyman Marcus Banks during Kobe’s one-and-only appearance this past Summer at the famed Drew League in Los Angeles.
During a stoppage in play, Kobe casually walks over to the bench to do a little boasting to Banks, who wasn’t in the game at the time.
Kobe gives his list for the greatest of all times and surprisingly he puts hall of famer and fellow Philly native Wilt Chamberlain at the top, followed by himself and then Michael Jordan, proceeding to note that, “it’s a short list.”
Whilst we definitely respect Kobe’s opinion, we also respectfully disagree with his GOAT list, as the Black Mamba fails to mention either of his Laker brethren in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and/or Magic Johnson, not to mention the current best player in the NBA LeBron James.
