Eh, whatever. Seeing as how I don't have Kobe, I'm not gonna get into defending him too hard. I'll just say for now that these statments... kobe, as far as i've been able to see for most of his career, didn't. but he sees himself as the GOAT (still find that hilarious), which means everyone's below him and not due his respect. ... are just straight-up, 100% false. Incorrect. Not true. Has he been a perfect player and teammate throughout his career (or really, ever in his career)? Hell no. But that nonsense up there is, well, just that. Nonsense.
