Lil Wayne Gives Perspective On GOAT Debate: LeBron, MJ, Or Kobe?


Lil Wayne, the renowned rapper and ardent basketball enthusiast, recently shared his thoughts on the perennial debate surrounding basketball’s greatest players. At the forefront of this discussion are three iconic names: the legendary six-time champion and five-time MVP, Michael Jordan (1984-2003); the esteemed Laker and five-time champion, Kobe Bryant (1996-2016); and the remarkable four-time champion and four-time MVP, LeBron James (2003-Present). Each player possesses unique qualities that contribute to the ongoing discourse, making them incomparable to most other players.

Lil Wayne, known for his flourishing rap career, is a dedicated Lakers fan, proudly hailing from New Orleans. Recently, he also made notable appearances during the Women’s NCAA Tournament, engaging with Miami’s Cavinder Twins and LSU’s triumphant National Championship-winning squad. But when it comes to the true basketball GOAT, who does Wayne believe deserves the title?


Expressing his perspective on the All The Smoke podcast, Lil Wayne began by acknowledging his limited personal knowledge of LeBron James. He emphasized that his evaluation of James stems primarily from his on-court performance. As a child, Wayne admired Michael Jordan for his consistent triumphs without fully comprehending the intricacies of the game. However, as he matured, Wayne gained a profound appreciation for the immense challenge of achieving consecutive victories. LeBron James, in Wayne’s eyes, surpassed Jordan due to his exceptional feat of accomplishing this with three different teams. Although James falls short of Jordan’s six championships, Wayne regards this achievement as a tipping point, solidifying James’ status as the greatest player.

Lil Wayne Ranks LeBron Over MJ

This current ranking offered by Lil Wayne stands in stark contrast to his mindset in 2012, where he proclaimed Kobe Bryant as the greatest player to ever grace the basketball court. In fact, Wayne was so enthralled by Bryant’s brilliance that he even named a 2009 track as a tribute to the illustrious Lakers career. However, Wayne’s latest assessment places Bryant at the third position.

Now the question arises: Does Lil Wayne’s perspective align with your own, or is it a missed shot? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section.
