Perhaps more than any other sport on the planet, NBA fans love to debate all-time rankings of players, comparing greats like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Larry Bird. But NBA legend Jerry West does not seem all that interested in that conversation.

During a recent interview on The Dan Patrick Show, Jerry West made it very clear that he does not personally care where he shows up on any list of the greatest players ever to play the game, saying his “ego’s not big enough” to worry about something like that.

“No. Dan, I don’t live in the past,” West said Friday on “The Dan Patrick Show” when asked whether he cares where he’s ranked in basketball history, according to Fox News.

“I’ve been one of those people that’s fortunate enough … I guess my ego’s not big enough to even care about that stuff. I was just happy I had a chance to play when the league was growing when it was like a high school game when you went in the gymnasium.”

Whether he cares about it or not, West is an absolute legend in the game and is widely considered one of the best in NBA history.
