A star ignites: « Kobe is the GOAT, it’s Jordan on steroids »


The GOAT debate should open up more and more with LeBron James’ all-time leading scorer record, the arrival of the Curry generation, etc. Moreover, a young star of the league has just made the buzz with a rather unique opinion on the question of the greatest player of all time.

NBA players have a very different vision of the league than ordinary fans. They know the underside of this environment, know the ingredients to succeed in a great career and dominate, and they can also compare the best players directly on the field. A few days ago, for example, Cam Reddish gave a rather surprising opinion in the GOAT debate.

I faced the best player of all time to be honest. It was nice. But difficult, because Steph Curry never stops moving.

For Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kobe is the GOAT

If the elders swear by Michael Jordan, newer generations have far more diverse answers in the perennial GOAT title debate. The proof with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s viral tirade, which explains why Kobe Bryant also deserves to be at the top of the all-time hierarchy, ahead of LeBron James then the Bulls’ No. 23. He also praises Kevin Durant…

Kobe Bryant is Michael Jordan, but on steroids. He has 5 rings, and if we talk about the full game, Kobe is better than Jordan. And if we only talk about talent, natural qualities to play basketball, Kevin Durant is No. 1 all-time. He’s 2.10m tall, and can do anything Steph Curry does. But either way Kobe is the GOAT, LeBron is second and Michael Jordan third.

For Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kobe Bryant would be a 2.0 version of Michael Jordan, his update who can do everything, only better. Because he also had 5 rings and a unique mentality, the Thunder point guard believes that Kobe deserves the title of GOAT. He also places LeBron James between the two on his podium, which did not fail to make the fans react, totally shocked.

My god, my idol don’t know anything about basketball

The more time passes, the more debate on the GOAT will open. Young people don’t necessarily have the exploits of Michael Jordan in mind anymore, so they more easily turn to players like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, with whom they grew up.
