Why is basketball different then any other team sport when saying someone is the "GOAT" ? Football the GOAT is by position, I feel basketball is the same way. How is MJ the greatest basketball player off all time if he would get owned if he was a center? Just like the GOAT center would get made a fool if he tried to play point guard? MJ is the GOAT at shooting guard IMO LBJ is the best small/power forward IMO.
Football is the only other sport that goes by position most go by the sport, The reason for this is b/c the responsibilities and tasks of each position in football is substantially different than basketball. It doesn't really matter what position you play in bball your main objective is to score and stop the person from score while football Qb, RB, O-line and defensive players tasks are different..

Lies. Being mean on the court is the only way to tell.
Lebron your streak is impressive but you've never done this
I had 10 Triple doubles in 11 games and averaged 34pts 11 boards 11 assists on 51% shooting
Absolutely love the NBA. I think it is great now. Little more defense, but other than that it is great
The celtics scored 9 points in the 2nd and 11 points in the 3rd and still won but nobody wants to watch that type of bball, these guys are so hard to cover that even if you play great D they still make shots..
Lebron will get a lot of MJ's records...
MJ has never done what I have done the last 7 games.
Lebron is the single greatest physical freak the NBA has ever seen. If the Heat wanted to they could have Lebron guard any position on the floor for an entire game and he'd be able to shut down whoever he wants. Just amazing.
Most points in a single Playoff game
Most points in NBa playoff history
Highest average points scored in playoff history
Most points scored in a NBA finals (single game)
Most points scored in NBa finals (career)
Most NBA finals MVps
Well he's already got three MVPs...
Jordan has 5 and that's only 1 record and def not a lock for him to surpass..
congrats to MJ. I'm glad we can compare someone who's career is done to a guy who is getting into his prime and playing the best basketball of his life even though the MJ-LBJ debate has been going on long before LBJ got in his prime.
Youngest player to 20k points
Can't compare that to Jordan b/c LEbron came out of HS while Jordan played at UNC till he was a Junior..
You didn't say I needed to list out the ones he can beat. LBJ will go down as one of the best ever. Different eras so it's pretty hard to say who will be better or who was better.
You're also talking about a guy who retired in the prime of his career and weight trained to become a baseball player..
YOu said a lot which means more than 3 and you only name one that he might surpass him but is not a certainity..
I guess I could list more out but what's the point. He could shatter every MJ record except for the championships and you would still say MJ was better. LBJ will go down as one of the best ever if he continues. It will always be hard to judge someone vs someone else in different eras.
You do know that LBJ has more tiple doubles in his 10 year career than MJ did in his whole 15 year career correct?

Is it just Christians who judge?
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
LeBron is a great player, however, to anyone that is not lying to themselves or blind and deaf then MJ is CLEARLY the better player and always will be. I would say that it's honestly not that close, and in a 1 on 1 game Michael wins by 10+
Ya obv I was pointing out that even though this stretch is impressive Jordan's was better, Jordan was going up against far better rim protectors such as hakeem, shaq, admiral, zo.
If Lebron averages more points in Playoff history than Jordan or scores more than 63 in a playoff game I will never post on here again..
