  • Ajoutée 20 mars 2019
  • Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman react to Kobe Bryant's exclusive sit down with Mike Greenberg on the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers and more. Kobe also admits he doesn't care about the GOAT debate between NBA greats like LeBron James, Michael Jordan and others, because he's simply "moved on."

    Kobe don't care, he knows he's great, he don't care what anybody thinks about him, that what's makes him great, anybody that knocks Kobe Bryant says he's not a great basketball player, they're just jealous of Kobe's greatness, now just deal with it, and change your diaper

    Reading comments.....How does Lebron James never play defense when he is a 5× all defensive first team? 2009 came in 2nd for DPOY and the cavs won 66 games.

    what really the Meaning of Michael 2.0. it means the mentality of playing the ball in the court. Michael is the 1st GOAT. Kobe come as 2.0 being 2nd GOAT of the NBA. Never Talk about Lebron in the GOAT thing watch this first

    Idc about the goat debate neither kobe is and will always be my favorite athlete of all time and as an objective honest fan I can admit Jordan is greater but people need to stop lying kobe is just as skilled as any player if not the most skilled player I've ever seen live and on tv anything Jordan can do SKILL WISE kobe can do and make it look sexier lol he was an artist he wasn't obsessed with statistics because once upon a time we didn't judge players based on stats he just wanted to win and that got him 5 out of 7 rings

    Lebron is a beast! He's much bigger and stronger, so he should plow through players. Kobe was smaller, he used leverage. Both of these dudes are great players, both can play the game. Jordan is the best of his time. Kobe is the best of his time. Lebron is great, but Durant/Westbrook/Curry are right up there with him. You see, when Kobe played, there wasn't anyone to really compare to him with. It was always a Kobe vs Jordan type conversation. Durant/Westbrook/Curry/James were never part of that conversation when Kobe was playing. Everyone sort of already knew they were witnessing history when they watched him play. However, I don't know squat about football, so..

    No way can lebron be like kobe. You should watch lebrons plays vs kobes. Kobe is an all around scorer. Bad thing about lebron he cant do post ups and one on one. Hes stronger than kobe but even a small guard or point guard can guard him in the paint or outside the paint. Lebron likes to flop its not what a high lvl legend player does. Most of kobes 3 points are contested why coz they know its gonna go in.

    What LBJ did in his era? he joined the stars.

    actually you might say kobe had it cushier than lebron, he had the best franchise of all time, the best coach of all time debatebly the best center of all time debatably at a very young age. that first lakers team could have won three rings without kobe. he really earned the second two rings imo however.

    Why do people say because Kobe wore 24 he was trying to be like Jordan when he wore 8 first. Lebron wears 23 and when he fist came in the league everyone was saying he wasnt trying to be like Jordan, he was doing it his own way. Now he trying to be like Jordan. come on now. Plus why does everyone say Lebron is a 4-5 way player when Lebron cant play in the post at all especially against bigger better defensive players. Lebron on posts up people way smaller than him. And even then he always fades away.

    we all respect Kobe's approach to the game and his 'mamba mentality', but the fact is, we dont think he's the goat because what he's done....WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN..ONLY BETTER IN MJ!

    carbon copies never get the same love and recognition as the original! **shrug**

    kobe isnt worried about the goat debate because he was never in the debate to begin with. there are certain skills and achievements that lebron has over jordan, but there is NOTHING kobe has over jordan. he’s just a poor man’s MJ, a little worse in every single aspect
