Brandon Jennings says Kobe Bryant is the GOAT

Don’t let Brandon Jennings’ choice of t-shirts fool you.

The Detroit Pistons point guard got people on Twitter talking today when he stated that Michael Jordan had more “help” than Kobe Bryant over the years, meaning that the Black Mamba should be considered as the greatest player of all time.

The Kobe-Jordan debate will never end – especially when we see videos showing us just how similar their games are – and there will always be people who say Shaquille O’Neal carried Bryant, while others will point out that Scottie Pippen was a lot better than people seemed to think.

However, at the end of the day, the GOAT discussion really is just a matter of preference. For some, the GOAT is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Wilt Chamberlain or even LeBron James, so Jennings is well within his rights to consider Bryant the greatest to ever do it.
