Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Has Creative Solution to Resolving the GOAT Debate

The GOAT debate has been making headlines since the very first moment LeBron James stepped on the NBA floor. The kid from Akron entered the NBA as a star and a lot of people got jealous at him. Of course, a lot of veterans couldn’t believe that a young kid could be that successful. Well, LeBron was pretty successful and he challenged the Chicago Bulls legend. Michael Jordan was a star and the Cleveland Cavaliers rookie did an excellent job in his first year. What does Kareem Abdul-Jabbar say about the GOAT debate? The NBA legend can definitely recognize greatness.

Truth is, the GOAT debate revolves around pretty much every awesome player out there. LeBron, Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, and many others. Of course, some would even say that Kevin Durant deserves a spot in the discussion. Well, I guess someone liked all the great things he did with the Brooklyn Nets this past season. The Nets had a chance to get the championship this past season, but they couldn’t handle Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.

Kareem may deserve a spot in the GOAT debate

Let’s go back to the GOAT debate. Great Kareem seems to have a solution to the “problem”. Maybe people will get the point and stop fighting. Maybe.

“GOAT discussions are fun, like debating who’s faster: Superman or the Flash. It’s a metaphysical mystery,” Abdul Jabbar said in his interview with Marc Stein of The New York Times. ” The question can never be answered because players from the past were trained under different restrictions and played under different rules.

“Then you have to ask what to give more weight to: Scoring, defense, assists? All of them? But the stats don’t always reveal the particular conditions and challenges of each season. Way too many variables. How about we just discuss the O’GOAT (One of the Greatest of All-Time)?”

We have at least one good reason to believe that the GOAT debate won’t end here. Jordan doesn’t really like the whole GOAT thing. He wouldn’t say he is the greatest of all time. LeBron did say this. He considers himself the GOAT for winning the title with the Cavs in 2016.
