Earlier in the year, Kobe Bryant was a guest on Max & Marcellus when he was asked who he thought the best player in the league was. Here was Kobe’s answer:
[pullquote]”Come on. I’m not going to say it’s somebody else. Are you kidding me? It’s entertaining for people to discuss that sort of stuff and you know “who’s the best?” and this, that and the other. I know what I feel and I know what I think. When my career’s all said and done then everybody can go ahead and discuss and see what’s what.”[/pullquote]
Of course, Kobe is never going to say that another player is better than him. In fact, not many players in the league will: the reason they are so great is because they have a huge ego, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It gives them their drive and confidence to play at the extremely high level that they do.
Kobe thinks he’s the best and nobody should fault him for doing so.
