    I think that , by any objective viewpoint, Michael Jordan would be considered the G.O.A.T. ( Some younger fans might choose LeBron . ) Wilt and Russell were great in their own right , but they were really the first athletic big men in the game , and they were able to dominate . Not to take anything away from them , but they simply did not have the skills of Jordan , Magic , Bird or The Big O .

    I would not argue Kareem is the GOAT. I never have.

    I can see the argument for Bill Russell- winning championships and rebounding like a maniac.

    I can see the argument for Wilt- nobody score like him and dominated offensively while also rebounding like a maniac. He even had over 6 assists/game in two seasons.

    I can see an argument for the Big O. He averaged a triple double for his first 6 seasons combined with 30+ pts!

    I can see the argument for Jordan & LeBron as physical specimens, great numbers and plenty of rings.

    I think Kareem could be included in the debate, but to me it's between the 5 I listed above.

    I've kind of talked myself out of the Russel as #1 position. If Wilt could have shot free throws, he'd be a shoe-in.

    Here's my rankings for today:

    1. Wilt
    2. Big O
    3. Jordan
    4. Russell
    5. LeBron
    6. Kareem

    To me, choosing #7 is harder than choosing #1.

    I don't know if this is a good argument or not, frankly. But it's all just in fun, right?

    I would take Michael Jordan in a one-on-one game against Wilt.

    And I would take 5 Michaels in a game against 5 Wilts.

    Id think Kobe is a leading candidate for that 7 spot...

    At least trying to quantify the greatest NBA player is a bit easier than the best NFL player...

    Oh man. Made it interesting.

    And then where are Tim Duncan and the vastly underrated John Stockton in all this? And where are Dr. J and Larry?

    When the NBA resumes its 2019-20 season this summer, it won’t just be the players, team employees, and league officials who’ll be sequestered at Walt Disney World for several months. According to a Professional Basketball Writers Association memo, a select group of reporters could be locked inside the Disney bubble for at least three-and-a-half months—with no option to re-enter if they exit quarantine.

    On June 4, the NBA Board of Governors approved a plan to restart the season, which came to a screeching halt after Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19 on March 12. There are still more than a few details to be worked out with the union, and some players are concerned about being kept in relative isolation through autumn, but as things currently stand, 22 teams would relocate to Disney’s 220-acre ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. There, a handful of games would be played to determine seeding for the playoffs, with the NBA Finals concluding in mid-October.
