This NBA season, the dispute between LeBron James and Michael Jordan gained a new chapter.
This year, LeBron James officially overtook Karl Malone as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is ahead of him currently. The incredible achievement has once again been eclipsed by a dispute over who is the greatest basketball player of all time.
“I believe LeBron will go down in history as the greatest player to ever do it,” Kidd added. “No one has done what he’s done on and off the floor, when you look at his numbers.” You must assemble the entire box. He is without a doubt the greatest of all time.”

Many former players do not consider LeBron James to be the “GOAT” over Michael Jordan. Jason Kidd should be included to the list.
Over the course of his NBA career, LeBron has accomplished nothing short of legendary status. It’s most likely the best start-to-finish career in basketball history. Michael Jordan, on the other hand, has something to say about it.
For over a decade, Jordan and the Bulls were unstoppable once they hit their stride. Jordan’s dedication to a single organisation for the length of his professional life is particularly noteworthy.
Because of how frequently he’s hopped ship, LeBron’s reputation has taken a knock. He flew from Cleveland to Miami, then from Miami to Cleveland, and finally from Cleveland to Los Angeles. It’s possible he’ll do it again this offseason, especially considering the Lakers’ current state.
Who do you believe is the NBA’s all-time greatest player?
