Default Player not top 5 in their team all-time be would be the greatest in another

Is there a player within there own franchise who wouldn't be the top five greatest player in their franchise history but if were on another franchise would be the GOAT.

Most likely this player would have to be on a team with alot of success throughout history with deep rosters IE- LA Lakers, Boston.

For example

Jerry West for the Lakers. Who he be the best in franchise history for lets say the Nuggets if he suited up for them for his career?
(assuming the greatest Lakers were KAJ, Magic, Shaq, Kobe, Wilt)

Boston: Bob Cousy, Havlichek, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Bill Russel

Pierce, Ray Allen, Parish, KG and Walton would be the best for Minnisota (Because Minasotta already had KG)...You can add people like Jo-Jo White, Tom Heinsohn and Dave Cowens.

Based on what they did with the Lakers West is easily ahead of Wilt although if you are going by entire careers Wilt is better. I rank West over Kobe still too.

No offense to Emeka, but the existence of the Bobcats makes this list a long one.

I would boot Kobe from your list and Put JW in his place. Kobe still has a lot to prove as team leader to show he belongs there. Also you're forgetting Mikan, he probably needs to be in there somewhere, probably instead of wilt.

West is a top-5 Laker of all-time. Only Magic is undoubtedly ahead of him, possibly Kareem and you can argue Shaq. After these 4, I'll take Baylor, which leaves Kobe, Wilt and Mikan out (pretty crazy to think).

Still, Kobe, with what he has achieved up to now, would rank as the possible GOAT for the following franchises:

Miami
N.York (maybe)
Charlotte
Indiana
N.Jersey
Toronto
Washington
Cleveland
Orlando
Seattle
Memphis
Minnesota (most will rank him above Garnett)
Clippers
Portland
Denver
Dallas
New Orleans
Phoenix

Of course, there's a flaw to this hypothesis, which is that Kobe would achieve different things in every single team. For example, Kobe in New York would win 0 rings, Kobe in Minnesota would score a few more points, etc.

Bolded are the ones I would disagree with. Orlando's Shaq still better than Kobe. For Washington I'd rank the Big E over him.
