Tom Brady is regarded as the GOAT by a lot of people, but LeBron James won’t give him the nod as GOAT athlete, just at football. On a recent episode of The Shop, Brady had a chance to address the situation.
Brady opened up about this situation and he explained that he understands why someone would think that way. He also knows that there are a few things that truly keep him from being the greatest athlete ever.
“I’m not a big comparison thing like that and it’s because really it just depends what style you like. You could say, well, you’re maybe the most accomplished. I would say, OK, yeah, I’ve won a lot of games, Super Bowls and so forth. But my style of play might not fit everybody else’s, what their view of what that position should be. I can really just be the best with the body that I was given. There’s certain things that I certainly cannot do. And I have the awareness to realize, OK, I can’t do those things.”
Tom Brady can be humble, but he also has to know how great he is. To hear that he’s the GOAT at football, but not overall likely doesn’t hurt his feelings too much. After all, tons of people try their hand at football, but only one can be considered GOAT. Tom Brady is quite happy accepting that honor.
