There is an ongoing debate on who is the greatest player of all time, or simply the GOAT as is more commonly said. Usually two names are brought up – Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

Portland’s superstar Damian Lillard revealed which player has his vote as the GOAT. “My NBA GOAT is Michael Jordan,” he said. “It’s just different when you talk about MJ. On the floor it’s just never been nobody like him. Nobody electrified the crowd like him…

“The Air Jordan shoe, rocking the cradle, walking in the air, you know, it’s Jordan. You know what I’m saying? Two, three on his back. I don’t think it’s too much of a debate as far as who’s the GOAT, and I would say it’s Jordan.”
