Sleepless star Jamie Foxx stopped by ESPN’S NBA Countdown on Wednesday during halftime of the Trail Blazers/Warriors game. Foxx was asked to look at a meme that Tracy McGrady posted on his Instagram earlier that day. That meme featured six NBA players—Hakeem Olajuwon, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, and Shaquille O’Neal—and the line, “Name the worst player in this picture.”
Foxx created some controversy when he took one quick glance at the photo and then took about two seconds to choose the player he would label as the “worst” on the list: Kobe Bryant.
Here were some of the strongest reactions to Foxx’s selection:
Jamie Foxx a dumb ass for saying get rid of Kobe

I'm not caring about what Jamie Foxx just said about removing Kobe, its obvious you can't trust a man who has 7 different hairlines
