    Default How can anyone have Kobe as GOAT?

    RIP Black Mamba, pure respect for his game forever...but how can anyone have him as GOAT when he doesn't have GOAT level production OR accolades?

    I mean yeah, the guy was a wizard at scoring...but being extremely versatile/skilled at scoring only gets you so far. Not only that, but the actual GOAT (MJ) is literally a better version of Kobe. Kobe copied MJ's game so we actually have the EASIEST MJ comparison possible compared to guys like Lebron, Kareem, Larry Bird...and MJ comes out ahead on production in the regular season, playoffs, and finals. Also has more MVPs, FMVPS, etc.

    I don't see what most people just say "Kobe is my favorite player" and leave it at that?

    He's in the 5-8 range for me. Third tier GOAT level.

    Most people don't even have Kobe as their "GOAT". And most media outlets barely have him in their top 10.

    What are you on about?

    You guys are ignorant as hell. Kobe is the second most popular basketball player ever...and because the NBA has the most ignorant, casual fan base of all major sports, then you should realize that among a LOT of basketball fans, popularity = best. So, there are a TON of people who think Kobe is the best player ever, or the second best player at worse.

    Basically no one who played before MJ is brought up as GOAT by people 40 and under. And most people who have basketball discussions online are certainly under 40. So, GOAT discussions for a lot of people start with basketball in the 90's/early 2000s and onward, which leads Kobe to get a ton of spotlight compared to his most accurate all time nba ranking (which is between 5-8 in the top 10). There are plenty of large social media personalities with huge followings who insist Kobe is the GOAT.

    You're literally making up shit lol

    Kobe does have a lot of fans. Or "stans" who shouldn't even be taken seriously. Point is they're outweighed by the majority (common sense) and the majority don't have him as GOAT.

    Neither do sports media.

    Way more people rank Kobe ahead of Shaq and Magic. Even though it's wrong to have Kobe ahead of them...the majority/consensus is that he is ahead. In fact, most casual basketball fans (aka 95% of NBA fans), will have Kobe as a top three player of all time.

    So no, I am not making anything up.
