Snoop Dogg is a die hard Los Angeles Lakers, but the dog father is a basketball, he has been watching basketball for decades.
So, when he was asked on Sunday afternoon on Clubhouse to name his top-five basketball players of All-Time. He named players from different eras.
“Oh, I am going to give you the order because it is what it is. Don’t get it f***ed up I tell it like it is and nothing like it was,” said Dogg.
“Number one is Magic off the rip. Magic Johnson, you understand me? That’s the era I am came up in. Ervin ‘Magic’ Johnson won a championship in College and come straight to the NBA and did that same thing. Michael Jordan because I watched him come out of college, he was good, but when he got to the league, they were whooping him, and he got stronger. That story they put together [The Last Dance]. I watched it in real life. He turned into the whole thing, and no one could f*** with cuz. But, he was after Magic, you feel me? Now, I have to put Kobe in there. You know that’s my kid; you understand me. Eight, twenty-four, twenty-four, eight.”
He would continue:
“Then I have to slap Kareem in that mother*****. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar because Kareem and I smoke together and he came to my star. When I got my star in Hollywood, he was in the audience. That’s a real friend of mine, and this last one will be a really distinctive position right here because it’s five. To be number five, you need some criteria. And I’m going to go with Wilt ‘The Stilt’ Chamberlain because he knocked off 20,000, and I don’t mean points you feel me.”
