Kobe Bryant supposedly only had help with one player, Shaquielle O’Neal.
These are not my words ladies and gentleman. These are the words of NBA player Brandon Jennings, a player who has yet to win any championships.
According to Detroit Free Press, Jennings went on a Twitter rant claiming Kobe as the GOAT and not Jordan due to the help Jordan got. Jennings tweeted:
“Micheal Jordan had more ‘Help’ winning his rings then Kobe. #debate #yallfightingthat”
“Kobe really the greatest ever”
“Look at the facts”
“Kobe is The Goat”
“It’s only one player compared to MJ, and that’s Kobe. Now Kobe change the mindset of a lot of players today!!! #Fact #SitUpinClass”
In Jennings perspective, Kobe didn’t get that same help Jordan did. So…Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, Pau Gasol, Rick Fox, Brian Shaw, Ron Harper, Lamar Odom, Trevor Ariza and healthy Andrew Bynum were just bench players?
There are many of great players in the NBA that did not win a ring. Winning a championship is TEAMWORK, not individual talent, gunning, isolation plays. Jordan didn’t win a ring every year and neither has Kobe. Even GOATS need talent surrounding them.
(side note: We can at least say they never left their team, even when they weren’t winning)
