The GOAT debate is one of the hottest topics in the NBA ever since the Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls' documentary 'The Last Dance' premiered three weeks ago. MJ is always part of these conversations, alongside the current Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
James has been great during his 17-year NBA tenure, as he keeps dominating the league at age 35 when everybody believed his level was going to start decreasing. Well, Bron has demonstrated it's the complete opposite and has remained as the best player on earth with the Purple and Gold this season. However, that doesn't seem to be good enough to put him at the same level as Jordan, not even for his good friends.
A couple of days ago, Dwyane Wade stated that Michael Jordan was the undisputed GOAT of basketball, and now Bron's best friend and business partner, Maverick Carter, has claimed the same. Talking with UNINTERRUPTED's WRTS After Party, Carter said the Chicago Bulls legend was the biggest competitor he's seen in his life.
“Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player I’ve ever seen, the most competitive mfer, always wants to win and he always has to have one up on somebody.”
It was revealed that MJ agreed to release footage of his last season with the Chicago Bulls in 2016 when LeBron won the NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jordan wanted to remind everybody he is the real GOAT and there is no debate to it.
You can say he has done a terrific job. Even LeBron James' friends are admitting there is nobody greater than His Airness.
