Fat Joe is the latest to join the Michael Jordan vs. Lebron James G.O.A.T debate. Despite King James becoming the NBA's all-time leading scorer
MJ's the GOAT, said the Bronx rapper on Friday (February 17) when walking the red carpet for the NBA's Celebrity Game during All-Star Weekend. "We actually worship LeBron."
The six-time champion, who never lost in the NBA Finals or played in a game seven, holds a special place in the hearts of those who saw him play live. On the other hand, younger fans like Cordae who have only seen LeBron play believe the title is his.
"I wasn't alive when MJ was playing," the "Two Tens" rapper told Complex. On February 7, Lebron James broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's almost 40-year-old scoring record against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Michael Jordan won four regular season MVP awards, six NBA championships, and six NBA Finals MVP awards, while LBJ won three championship victories.
The conversation continues with no real conclusion, as there are no set parameters for G.O.A.T determination.
