Kobe on GOAT conversations: ‘I really don’t care’

Lakers legend Kobe Bryant wants no part of GOAT talk.

While most Los Angeles Lakers fans consider Kobe Bryant to be in the conversation when it comes to the greatest player of all-time, he wants no part of the conversation.

Appears on ESPN’s “Get Up,” the former Lakers great, who helped the team win five NBA championships during his career, said he has “moved on” from such conversations.

“It’s hard for people to believe, but I really don’t care,” Bryant said about such debates. “I’ve moved on. You have a career, you do the best you can for the 20 years I was fortunate to play and then you shelf it. You’re done. You move on to the next thing.”

Bryant is focused on what comes next, as opposed to what went down.

“Now I’m focused on these next 20 years,” he said. “So, those debates are entertaining, I’m sure it’s fun for people to engage on those, but for me personally, it doesn’t matter.

“The best way to explain it is I typically do not engage in things that I cannot definitively win.”
