    I’m from the old school and I know the game has changed but in my eyes MJ is still the GOAT of all goats! Discuss

    Have to agree, 6 championships, I think it's just a media beat up giving themselves something to talk about when they bring MJ into it.
    A discussion of who is second to MJ is fair I think, and it doesn't involve Steph.

    If it's about championships why isn't Bill Russell the GOAT with 11 rings?

    Ok ok not just 6 championships, tomorrow if I can be fukd I'll dig up the stats, but also just the drive to win, or maybe more so the attitude not 2 lose, I've watched docos showing that he is a psychopath, he did not accept anything less than his best, and has never broken this still to this day.

    No one comes close to Jordan watched basketball all my life. Kobe and Lebron are the greats of their eras but Jordan was just unstoppable. As much as I love him you can’t say he is the goat of all goats tho in sport. He played in a team sport. Oh yeah Steph curry has a long way to be even mentioned in the greats conversation

    MJ is Goat he took basketball to a whole new level. I reckon Kobe is the closet to MJ in replicating skill level, attitude, style and a big game clutch winner.

    Also I may be bias on Kobe as he was my favorite player as a Lakers fan, but I still stand by what I said.

    LeBron is a great player but I don't rate him higher than MJ or Kobe.

    Steph, dude ain't even in the picture yet.

    Also nice to see Toronto beat GSW for the Championship. GSW are like the Melbourne Storm or Roosters of the NBA.

    There were only 8 teams back then and the Celtics had like 5 of the best 10 players. Bill Russell was never the top scorer on his team and only once was the 2nd highest scorer on his team.

    IMO

    I just think the question is flawed. Too many variables: era, play styles, amount of teams, competitive teams, difference in positions etc.

    You can argue GOAT in position and best in an era, I don't think it's possible to decide who the absolute GOAT is

    LeBron does almost everything on the court better than Jordan

    1) LeBron is more athletic, bigger, stronger and jumps higher
    2) Lebron shoots better
    3) Lebron passes better
    4) Lebron rebounds better
    5) Lebron is more clutch
    6) Lebron is a better defender because he can guard any position

    1) Jordan is more agile
    2) Jordan probably is quicker
    3) Jordan has more steals as he should

    the reason Jordan has 6 championships is because he had an easier path, its quite simple mathematics, like LeBron had an incredible game 1 of the 2018 finals scoring 51 pts (19-32 FG) but its not enough to beat the opposition, golden state have taken away 2 or more titles that might have gone to LeBron

    if 90's basketball players like olajuwon, payton, malone and reggie miller formed a western conference superteam to stop Jordan and his finals record was only 3-3 it doesn't mean he was a worse player ffs
