Resolved Question: Michael Jordan vs Kareem
I have a debate with a friend regarding the greatest NBA player of all times. I have read many articles from retired NBA players, and sports journalists regarding this question that always has different answers. So now Im going to normal people...
Who is the greatest NBA player of all times, and WHY??? (the why is very important)
I know KAJ has better stats than MJ, but from the articles I read professionals say that MJ is greatest considering he was a shooting guard and played incredible for his role. Therefore I think its MJ, but my friend says stats don't lie. Please help us end this debate! Make sure you give a specific reason to why you chose who you chose with legit facts.
10 points for best answer!!!!
