On the verge of winning his fourth NBA Championship, it seems LeBron James has people re-evaluating the GOAT conversation once again.

If he ends up bringing the Lakers a title, it'd be enough for many to hand him the greatest of All-Time title for good.

But for Floyd "Money" Mayweather, it seems he still isn't quite ready to make that leap. In a chat with Shannon Sharpe on "Club Shay Shay," Mayweather revealed his stance on the infamous topic, ultimately picking Jordan over "King" James.

From 1984-2003, Michael Jordan dominated the NBA, making 14 All-Star teams, winning 5 MVPs, 10 scoring titles, and 6 Championships.

He averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5,3 assists on 49.7% shooting for his career. Handling King James in a one-on-one situation might be tough considering how much bigger and stronger LeBron is.

However, LeBron doesn't quite match up to Jordan mentally. MJ is the epitome of a "killer mentality" type of player, and that in itself often propelled his team to victory in the most important moments.

Nevertheless, this is a conversation that will continue to pick up steam, especially if LeBron ends up raising that Larry O'Brien in a few days.
