The GOAT debate has become extra popularly recently with a lot of analysts and fans that each has their own opinion and it has expanded so much that it is even being asked on late night shows.

Kobe Bryant was a guest on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" this week, as Bryant participated in a game of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts," in which celebrities have to pick between answering a tough question or eating some disgusting food.

Right on the first go, Kobe was hit with the ultimate question. How would he rank LeBron James, Michael Jordan and himself from best to worst? He had an option of answering that or eating a 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,"

Firstly, he was ready to eat the tongue, but he quickly switched his mind and fired his answer:

“All right, fine. I’m the best, Michael’s the second best, LeBron’s third-best”

Nobody expected a different answer from one of the most confident and competitive players ever, as this was the only right answer he could give himself.

If you asked any of the other two guys the same question, they would probably put themselves in the first place also.

Still, although it was said in good vibes with a laugh on his face, everybody still knows that is what he actually thinks and it will definitely stir a lot of debates going forward between the die-hard fans of those players.
