Kobe Bryant ranks himself GOAT over Michael Jordan, LeBron James

Kobe Bryant ranks himself GOAT over Michael Jordan, LeBron James

The former Laker was put in a tough situation during the segment when he was asked to rank himself, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in order of greatest.

Initially, Bryant backed off from answering the question out of fear of instigating a long debated topic.

Kobe Bryant stopped by "The Late Late Show" as a guest of host James Corden, faced with a truth-or-dare scenario: to rank himself with Michael Jordan and LeBron James or eat cow tongue to avoid the controversy. On the other, he doesn't want to appear as if he's backing away from a challenge by not eating the cow's tongue.

"You know what I'm going to answer, but I'm not going to answer it, because then everybody's going to sit there and debate about it", he said. "I'm the best, Michael's second-best, LeBron is third".

Jordan, of course, is the most successful out of all three players as he has six Finals wins, which is one more than Bryant, and two more than James.

Amusing it took a late-night show host and a really disgusting dry cow tongue to pry the words from Bryant's mouth, as this is the very first time the five-time National Basketball Association champion has dared to say those words. The answer wasn't all that surprising knowing his self-confidence but how he ranks Jordan and James will surely reignite the debate. James now has 32,516 points in 1,197 games played - 224 more points than Jordan, who's fifth on the all-time points-scored list.

"Seriously, seriously", Bryant said.
