15 NBA LEGENDS Share Who They Think The GOAT Is

Nov 10, 2021
hey man it's all about yg and k young and when you're talking about who's the

goat

it's going to be a topic forever because so many people have different opinions and there are so many

legends

that dominated their time when

they

were in the nba but we would even get to see them on live tv that's why some people say kareem is the

goat

while other people say jordan is a goat we just go by what we see at the time and at this point there are many people who don't even

they

've seen michael jordan play on live tv so of course some people will say lebron is the girl or kobe but that's what makes the goat debate fun because people argue what they see with their own eyes so why not listen to 15

legends

that were actually, in the league, choose who's the goat, so before we go straight to that, make sure you like to

think

you know uh , it starts with what he's doing, what he's done and how the game is going today that he's better than oscar robertson jerry west bill russell uh a number of people five ten years ago it's always who's bigger who will be e l better him or jack and that conversation is pretty much over for most people uh i make a difference and i give you a difference It's not an analogy to that because you'll never tell me who's the greatest of all time in the first place .

I

think

that's more for PR and more for selling stories and getting publicity. in the same tournament they never played the same team they never played the same you know the length of the golf course i never played will changman i never played you know jerry west to say now that you know one is bigger than the other is to be a little you know it's unfair you know I think when you can see the similarities and understand if this is a way you can judge the two how much impact each change had or evolved the game jack during his time when he was playing but tiger doing his time now you know obviously jack won more during the time he played tiger evolved to where he was you know he crossed a lot of different boundaries where it's not just a white guy sporting you know black men afro-a american, you know all minorities play the game and they play at a level where it generated so much financial interest that it grew the game from a financial standpoint now does that make it the best?

15 nba legends share who they think the goat is...

Does that mean it's less than Jack i? i think its unfair yeah probably jack has 18 majors plus 18 majors and the tigers have 14 and i think thats when you know thats how people judge certain things i won six championships bill russell won 11 does that make bill russell be better than me and make me better than him not because we play in different eras so when you try to equate who is the greatest of all time it's an unfair parallel it's an unfair choice and i think you know those are the demons that you know obviously tiger had to live with it and he's going to be challenged and rated on that but to me i think they're both great i would never say one is better than the other that's me that's my baby he's well, what are you going to find? i am the best second best to michael i like to say congratulations to chicago also michael jordan is truly the best of all time no other athlete could have done what he did this year keeping his focus despite doing everything he wanted to do with all the distractions just great great great performance by michael jordan our resident legend isaiah thomas says you're the greatest basketball player of all time it's true i don't think there's any way we can determine who is the greatest player of all time i saw a lot of the guys in your article you just ran and none of them saw chamberlain will play someone who averaged 50 points a game scored 100 points in a game i think they have no idea what he did how he did it they didn't see bill russell chokes the league for 11 championships, they didn't see any of that, so they know their perspective is limited and I think every era has had great players. fans who can't deny his achievements comment or his ability to help his team win is something impossible to understand so i don't waste a lot of time talking about it but we need to have this conversation because it's something people wonder about lebron and michael were such spectacular athletes and i think it's more about what they're talking about do you care where you're ranked all the time? i did it if you don't appreciate it it's ok it feels like you're underrated i'm underrated but it's ok you're the greatest big man ever i'm possibly not the most successful bill russell was the most successful and he understood how to make his team win 11 world championships in 13 years beat michael jordan lebron won't come close come on are you better than jordan?
15 nba legends share who they think the goat is
I'm not better than him, but I was at least as effective as him and I believe that the effect you have on the game is how you should be judged. Bill russell affected the games. You couldn't shoot near the basket. I know that he terrorized everyone for 13 years. Hear it thanks to Michael Jordan. You have seen many other players. Discussions I always shut people up because because what I do I always leave it to the guys before me like they say oh you this and you that you said no wilt was the most dominant yes michael jordan was the best player magic was the point biggest guard charles and carl malone top point guards that's all the rest of the ones that come come after they're just copycats lebron has to do something or can do something where you would go now i would see him as the best player uh no i think he certainly, um you know offhand he's definitely top five all time huh but playing him and mj i think for me it's mj all day just because i played him and you know mj just had everything you know, from midrange to three pointers and post play and he could score and dominate at every position lebron is dominant lebron could do so many things on the court do you think lebron is a better all round player than jordan um thats tough thats tough to say by that you know lebron is probably one of the best passers you know the league has ever seen um mj is probably that's probably the weakest part of his game you know it didn't happen much but at the same time you know mj had no other weaknesses in his game and, defensively, he was a two-way player.
15 nba legends share who they think the goat is
Defensively, he was amazing and just as dominant, okay. there really is no comparison michael jordan played in the era where the game was different was uh being a different referee than lebron plays in lebron plays a different role than michael played as a player to be fair to michael he was never asked to do things that lebron does for his team, he had a minor role and statistically that's why you're seeing Lebron's numbers are much better than Michael Jordan's numbers in terms of what he would do throughout the game because we don't use Michael to do things that the CAV uses the lebron way so the comparison is unfair um they play different positions I know a lot of times we love to answer that question because we want to hear about the story behind it but the truth its not a fair comparison to for lebron or michael one guy is considered a guard two and one guy is considered a small forward and you know they are definitely great in their era they are both the m best in his era but to say who is the best we will never do it i know i mean in my opinion will chamberlain is the best basketball player but michael and lebron should never really be compared because its almost like comparing kareem with me so it wouldn't be fair, well you see everyone gets autographs.
It's this weekend but the best collection belongs to one of the top 50 players of all time clyde drexler you have so much fun hey this is like being a kid in the candy store i have been an avid nba fan for many years and I know this this time is one of the most historic times in NBA history, so I'm having a great time. What is your most precious autograph? Oh well, the best of all time. in front of me i signed a couple of my books for my little kids and i couldn't be happier who do you think added of the kids in your generation who do you think moses was probably the most underrated moses is the most underrated because you know kareem is the best, I mean in terms of all-time centers, kareem is the number one guy in terms of all-time players, kareem is still the number one guy, you know he's the guy you've got, he's the guy you've got to deal with starting your franchise because you get 20 years you get 20 years and you get leadership you get excellence in terms of, uh, offensively and defensively, figuring things out and, uh, an accomplishment, I mean you know his numbers speak volumes and, uh, just because he had a bad attitude a lot of people you know disrespect him but he never had a bad attitude to me and you know I mean I met him in 1970 and I don't think there was a more powerful weapon to step on a tennis court basketball there wouldn't be an allen iverson hall of famer standing on this podium if it wasn't for this guy he gave me the vision man and um you know you wanna be fast like isaiah and you wanna shoot like a bird you know how to bounce like barkley , pass like magic, be dominant like shaq but man i wanted to be like mike you know what i mean i remember the first time i played him and i went out on the court and i looked at him and for the first time in my life , a human being didn't seem real to me, you know what?
I mean I don't know if you watched the chapel show but he he ta He talked about a certain incident where he saw someone looking at Rick James and I literally saw his aura like he looked like he was glowing and I'm and I'm sitting there and I'm i'm telling myself as a man that's mike and i'm looking at him i can't stop looking at him like i'm looking at his shoes and i'm like a man he put on the jordans you know what i mean the best player you. I've ever played vs vs, well you know it depends on what you're looking for in the player.
If I had to pick a player to start a franchise, yeah, you know, and I want to win championships, no one would guess. I have asked people that question they ask and none of them guess who I would pick and if you know guess who you think I would pick of all time in history of all accolades in the history of your game uh wilt no uh russell you're right bill russell bill russell who won 11 i think a 13 year championship every year and the year he didn't wi At the championship he got hurt i mean the guy was just amazing and think about it watch people look at the score , look at the stats, yeah, and Russell's stats weren't too bad because no one took him. high percentage because most of his shots were dunks on time, you know inside the key and uh uh, the guy was amazing, I mean the way you know, the way he played, you know, and people were amazed, said russell and they'll just look in the chats and see the guys have 12 13 points again but look at the intangibles hey he'll save you 30 40 points you know I think when you put the greatest of all time right in the top of the list, um michael jordan combined some elements that i haven't seen in a basketball player the entirety of his game is huge people because michael had that swagger you know he had that killer look on his face someone i really admire a long time ago couple years after we won the championship you said look look at his face you said everyone saw me cry that's how it was for 52 years everything in sports was happening in cleveland and then after i stopped i was like that right there I eat you nverted into the greatest player of all time everyone was just how they were the greatest team of all time like it was the greatest team that ever came together and for us to come back you know the way we come back that way I was like you did something special i saw it as a coming of age moment just like why did you take a step back at that point without saying you changed your mind or anything because i realized the conversation is going to continue no matter what and it's great for the game. yeah it's great for barbershops it's great for the game um it will keep happening um I don't know why the only thing I don't get is you know you never hear you know the best quarterbacks yeah it always talks from you.
I've never heard who the best quarterback is. You know, you know Brady or Montana. Yeah, you know you got Montana. Brady was six years old. much more and and things of that nature but you never hear how every baseball conversation every day is like babe ruth and then thepeople move on ok no more arguments ok no more exactly you know you know so you know and and other sports hockey do you listen to wayne gretzky you know people move on you haven't heard anything since you don't move on wayne gretzky is the best you move on you know stuff about nature but you know the conversation is always going to be had and it's great for discussions because they want to compare mistakes they want to compare players and already who they've seen so guys I hope you guys enjoyed the video and you can see that even the legends of the NBA have different opinions and some of them don't. i even think this should be a goat so comment below who your goat is and why and make sure you like
