    Some people just like to see the world burn (;)) and since the Messi vs Ronaldo thread is such a "fun" one I figured why not ask the CAF who they feel is the GOAT in basketball?

    Thats sort of my feeling right now. I feel it is Jordan right now but if LBJ was to win 2 or 3 more titles along with all of his individual records the case is compelling.

    I think Lebron might possibly be the most talented basketball player ever but Jordan is the greatest.

    More of a Larry Bird guy myself tbh:yawn: Love his confidence and cockiness.

    LeBron scores about the same and assists more so clearly he's better :wenger:

    Joking aside, it's definitely Jordan as of now. LeBron has enough time to make it into a contest, don't think he'll ever do it though.

    If had a better win/loss record in the finals he would be the clear winner because he is the most talented IMO and has the longevity 35years old and still averaged 27 PPG last season which is incredible.

    At the same time Jordans record in the finals speaks for itself truly remarkable.

    I think are the clear top 3. Then you can make an argument for any of the following

    Kareem
    Magic
    Bird

    And then the next tier down would include

    Duncan
    Hakeem
    Bryant
    Garnett
    Shaw
    Barkley
    Malone
    Robertson
    Erving

    MJ.

    This is from 2018, so if LeBron added anything to his stats, apologies. (It won’t change the outcome)

    I agree with this for sure. For me it would be as of right now unless LBJ somehow wins 3 more rings.
    1.Jordan
    2.LBJ
    3.Wilt
    4.Larry Bird/Magic
    5.Larry Bird/Magic (I cant decide who is 4 or 5 between those two:nervous:)

    Also worth adding Shaq to that second Tier arguably the most dominant player ever. Had he actually taken care of his body I wonder how many more rings he could of got.

    He's not even going to get to another 3 finals, let alone win 3 titles.

    No more easy mode in the East, he's in the West now.

    Lebron is already done. You heard it here first. The artificial numbers era is just propping him up.

    So, seeing there's an 'Other Sport' section @SportingCP96 decided the best place to put Jordan vs Lebron is in... the Entertainment forum? :wenger:

    No, this has been set in stone for a while. Chris Broussard said it well recently, Lebron can never surpass Michael Jordan as a player but in terms of player power, impact and being a boss in the NBA, he has.

    Jordan fanboys will of course say Jordan but he was always carried by his Xavi and Iniesta whereas Lebron has gone to different teams and won games by himself. Lebron has also won tournaments with that national team. Jordan often disappears on the big stage.

    MJ - by a distance. Nothing against LeBron but Jordan was something else.

    Has Steph Curry got any chance of being in this conversation or is he more of a Beckham style once in a generation player with a very specific skill?

    I don't think that he gets into Top 10, for me @Eboue's list his spot on. People will argue between the Top 3 , though some will argue that Kareem is in the Top 3 but I don't know who drops from Chamberlain and James.

    Has LeBron beaten the Nerdlucks? No? Then it's settled. Close thread.
