If you want an honest opinion about NBA players who rap, ask Stephen Jackson. TMZ Sports caught up with him recently and, after he revealed that he considers himself to be the best basketball player-turned-rapper, he was asked which other NBA players he listens to. He gave props to Damian Lillard, Lou Williams, and Marquis Daniels, but he had some not-so-nice things to say about Lance Stephenson and Kobe Bryant.

"It was horrible," he said when asked about Kobe's career. "It was horrible. It was horrible. They didn't take it serious. They just did it because they were stars."

C'mon, man, he wasn't that ba…oh, wait. Nevermind.
