With the recent breaking of the all-time scoring record by LeBron James, the debate over who truly deserves the title of GOAT in the NBA has been reignited. James, now 38 years old, surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for first all-time on the scorer’s list, a feat that has left many fans in awe.
As LeBron continues to build upon this record, Michael Jordan, widely regarded as the current GOAT, has responded to James’ accomplishment. In a short statement to Mike J. Babcock of TMZ, Jordan congratulated LeBron, acknowledging his hard work, longevity, and skill.
“Congratulations to LeBron on this incredible achievement. It’s a testament to his hard work, longevity, and his great skill,” Jordan said.
Despite the newfound attention on the GOAT debate, both LeBron and Jordan have earned their place among the greatest to ever play the game and are worthy of the respect and admiration from fans.
The outcome of the debate remains to be seen, but for now, basketball fans everywhere are simply enjoying the spectacle of two of the greatest players in the sport’s history.
