Jayson Tatum’s surprising answer to picking between Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan

Some decisions in life are often easy to make, like whether an NBA player ought to go for a slam dunk or to shoot a 3-pointer. Others are more a matter of personal taste, like whether rapper Drake or Nelly is better. And still others can be a mix of subjective assessment and statistical production, like whether Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant was the better basketball player.

But for superstar Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum, there is a clear answer for each of these questions, at least from where he sits. And he made those answers known on a recent episode of the “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” show.

His answer on who was the greater player may surprise you, given he knew both Kobe and MJ; take a look at the clip embedded below to learn what he replied.
