Is LeBron James the GOAT?

The conversation about the greatest player of all time (GOAT) often comes down to LeBron James and Michael Jordan. James came into the league in 2003 as the self-anointed “Chosen One” and the heir to Jordan’s throne, so much so that he decided to wear the # 23 jersey as well.

James has had an incredible career, reaching the NBA Finals ten times, winning four championships and four Finals MVP awards with three different teams. Wherever he goes, that team becomes relevant, and becomes a championship contender.

James is averaging 27.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.4 assists while shooting the ball better than 50% from the field and nearly 35% from beyond the arc. Not only can he put the ball in the net at will, but he also improves the players around him by getting them open looks. He has sometimes been described as a combination of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.

However, one can never really compare different eras because of the different rules and how the way the game is played. That means making comparisons between Jordan and James can be tricky. The pair also never played against each other, which makes it more difficult to determine who the best player is.

Nevertheless, James is one of the best players in the game’s history, especially as he tops most major statistical categories.
