Known for occasionally getting it in on the basketball court, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka had a lot to say in regards to the sport during an interview with The Bay’s WILD 94.9. The Brick Squad artist proclaimed the Oklahoma Thunder as being his favorite team and even voiced his opinion on Kobe Bryant versus LeBron James.
“As a basketball player, I’ll say Kobe Bryant,” said Waka when asked which NBA baller is the most talented. “And I hate Kobe Bryant. I feel like LeBron’s a sellout. No matter what nobody say. As a kid growing up it was never about no check or no ring. It was about, ‘I play basketball man. I’m happy because I’m in the NBA.’ Now everybody, it’s like a check and a ring.”
The rapper also went on to name Michael Jordan and Kevin Durant as just two of the players he would recruit for his own personal Dream Team.
Later in the interview, Waka Flocka spoke on possible collaborations and revealed that he feels he’s still a ways away from attaining those big name features.
“I still feel like I don’t deserve a Kanye feature, a Jay-Z feature, a Fifty feature,” the rapper explained. “You know what I mean? I been rapping since ’09. I gotta work. I probably give it til next year…I don’t even know how to count bars still. It’s still new to me.”
