The NBA completed its 75th anniversary last season, and the league had a grand celebration for it. The NBA honored some of the greatest players that played in the league by including them in the NBA 75th Anniversary Team.
The list included some of the best players that have ever played in the league. From Michael Jordan to LeBron James, the list had a lot of fantastic players. Evidently, there were players who were simply the best players of their generation.
Today our focus is just on that as we talk about three players who are very common names in the GOAT debate as well. We are talking about none other than Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James.
The three superstars might have played in different eras, but one thing that they have in common is that they are considered as the best players of their generation and their teams were the best as well during the same.
LeBron James Once Again Gets Compared To Michael Jordan And Kobe Bryant
Speaking of the three superstars, an NBA fan on Twitter recently decided to compare them. The fan claimed that Mike and Kobe are better than LeBron due to the fact that their teams stopped other teams from winning NBA Championship during their primes. Whereas we have not seen the same dominance from a LeBron-led team.
To be honest, this can be true in the case of Jordan. But when it comes to Kobe's era, there were plenty of other NBA franchises that won titles.
However, instead of comparing the three legends of the sport, we should simply focus on enjoying their achievements during their eras. It's surely easier said than done and no matter what era we talk about it's impossible to get a consensus opinion from fans about any debate.
