Big fan of sports and basketball, the rapper Lil Wayne has already been asked several times to name the best player in the history of the NBA. But each time, the answer seems different. The proof with his positions in 2018.
At the end of 2018, Lil Wayne launched his show « The Bumbu Room » with the aim of answering fans’ questions. From the first episode, the rapper had to answer the classic dilemma of the GOAT, the best player who never played in the NBA.
However, Weezy didn’t have to choose between Michael Jordan and LeBron James, as tradition would have it, but between His Airness and Kobe Bryant. And his answer surprised many:
Oooof. Jordan or Kobe? Goodness. You just gave me a headache.
Man, that’s a really, really tough question. These days, people think the tough question is around Jordan and LeBron. No, it’s around Jordan and Kobe.
May God have mercy, may he forgive me. Jordan, forgive me. But it’s Kobe.
Lil Wayne’s stock soared in Los Angeles after such comments, unlike in Illinois, Jordan’s home turf.
