Default SIAP, Kobe tells you the 5 greatest....

Larry Bird is money in Kobe Bryants book.

When asked to name the five greatest NBA players of all-time, Bryant didnt miss a beat.

Its not very difficult for me, Bryant said. Id go Magic, Jordan, Bird, Russell and Jabbar.

the real top 5 GOATs. Kobe knows Wilt doesn't belong in the top 5 and it's the truth.

That's a starting 5 that would be impossible to beat.
Russell would dominate defensively while KAJ scores and also dominates defensively. Oh, MJ played good defense too.

Ball movement would be insane with Magic, Bird and Russell (who was a great passer in his own right).

and Kobe knows Kobe doesn't belong in the top-5, despite Magic saying that Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time (which is typical Magic-speak, not to be taken seriously).

well that's hard to say. No one's gonna name themselves when asked who's the greatest, except if you are MJ.

No. It was not a starting-5 list.
It was greatest of all time list.
Kobe values rings.
btw, MANY former players and pundits consider Russell to be THE GOAT...over Kareem and MJ.
