The GOAT debate gets fans pretty riled up in every sport. But it’s hardly ever hotter than it is today in hoops, where it’s mostly about whether the Greatest of All Time crown belongs to Michael Jordan or LeBron James. (Debate note: Bill Russell, Magic, Kareem, Wilt, Doc, Bird, Kobe — for now they all seem to be vying for third.)
But he generational difference means the GOAT title can never really be decided. Jordan retired from the NBA when LeBron James was 9 years old.
