NBA GOAT Debate: Michael Jordan or LeBron James

LeBron James has earned his fourth NBA championship and fourth Finals MVP, closing the gap on the ring total of all-time great Michael Jordan. As LeBron’s legacy continues to grow, the debate of who is the GREATEST player in league history becomes closer than ever before. 

Few questions have engaged the world of sports as much as the question about the best or greatest sportsman of all time. Often the acronym GOAT – Greatest Of All Time – is attributed to someone who is the greatest at a certain skill. But often the word ”best” or ”best of all time” is mixed into the discussion and then it gets complicated. 

The first question to ask is about the difference between ”greatest” and ”best”. Doesn’t it mean the same thing?
