Allen Iverson: Michael Jordan ‘Always Going to Be the GOAT’

by December 07, 2018

No offense to LeBron James, but Allen Iverson says Michael Jordan will always be the greatest basketball player in NBA history.

Iverson has “nothing but love for LeBron”; Mike’s status as the G.O.A.T., however, is forever secure.

Excluding himself, The Answer adds that his all-time starting five would consist of Jordan, James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal and Stephen Curry.

Per The Players’ Tribune:

“I’m hearing a lot of people these days fronting like they have LeBron over Mike!!

“Man….. listen. First of all, I love LeBron. I have nothing but love for LeBron. That’s the best player of his generation, one of the best ever, a great husband, great father, great role model, and it’s even beyond that: What he’s doing with that school in Akron?? It’s a beautiful thing.

“But y’all. We’re talking about Mike. We’re talking about Mike, O.K.?? We’re talking about Black Jesus himself.

“And I don’t really have much more to say beyond that. Mike is the GOAT……. Mike is always going to be the GOAT. And please don’t even insult me with any of this “stats, AI!” business, like you have a chance of changing my mind.”
