Why do people automatically name Jordan as the GOAT? Niggas be acting like Kareem ain’t number 1 in scoring. Niggas forget that Kareem got 6 rings too. Niggas be acting like them 6 MVPs don’t mean shit. Niggas act like he ain’t win the championship every year of high school, then 3 years in college and it only wasn’t 4 because freshman were ineligible. Niggas act like the skyhook wasn’t unstoppable for 20, bruh, got damn 20 years. He was doggin niggas with the same move for 20 fucking years. I’m only 21. He spent my whole life doing the same shit. You can’t even find a highlight of a nigga blocking it. He the only nigga to win rings under two different names.
Age bruh. That’s it. Even the Lakers lowkey kinda fucked over Kareem. Didn’t eem wanna put dude statue outside.
I know this argument is a little cliche, but Jordan changed the game from the one Kareem perfected to the one it is right now. Kareem is arguably the best big man ever, but he was playing in the era of dominant big men. He was the best there was at the game being played then. But Jordan changed the whole nature of the game. How defenses run, how offenses are setup. How teams draft. What responsibilities certain positions hold. Those are all things currently based off of what he did on the court. That’s why I feel he’s considered the greatest player of all time.
