Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is currently rehabbing, as he recovers from a torn Achilles, but found some time to talk to ESPN 710 radio in Los Angeles, where he discussed his road back.

And, also offered up his list of the five greatest players in NBA history.

“It’s not very difficult for me. I’d go Magic, Jordan, Bird, Russell and Jabbar,” Kobe said.

“I will say as the years go on people really forget how great Larry Bird was,” he continued. “He was ridiculous. And I grew up in LA — just like everyone else here — hating his guts. Dude — the guy was just money.”
