When it comes to the GOAT conversation, no two players are argued more than LeBron James sand Michael Jordan.

Though "The Last Dance" has convinced many that Mike is the true GOAT, there are many who still hold to the view that King James is the best basketball player ever.

But in a recent 600-person fan poll conducted by ESPN, Jordan surpasses LeBron in literally everything both on and off the court.

Not only did James not win in any category, but he also didn't come close. Why are the results so lopsided?

Part of the reason is no doubt because of "The Last Dance." Many of the fans who watched developed a newfound respect for Jordan and his theatrics through the 90s. They also didn't poll anyone under the age of 18, so a lot of today's biggest LeBron supporters didn't get the chance to give their input.

Nonetheless, it seems Jordan is the King -- at least, for now. Only time will tell if LeBron can catch up.
