Kobe Bryant Names His Five Greatest NBA Players of All-Time

Kobe Bryant Names His Five Greatest NBA Players of All-TimeGary A. Vasquez/USA TODAY Sports

It's a question that no one gets tired of asking. "Who are the five greatest NBA players of all-time?" Usually, there are some guys who are always mentioned, like Michael Jordan, unless you're trolling like Karl Malone. Anyway, while making an appearance on ESPN Radio Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant was asked to give his own starting five and he said, “It’s not very difficult for me. I’d go Magic, Jordan, Bird, Russell and Jabbar.”

Do you agree with Bryant's starting five? Honestly, though, we're surprised the Black Mamba didn't pull a Dylan and say, "Kobe, Kobe, Kobe, Kobe and Kobe." We kid, we kid. Anyway, if you would like to hear the interview in its entirety, check it out below.
