Who has Kareem Abdul Jabbar as the GOAT in basketball?
 
And if not, why don't you have him there?

A center can never be the GOAT basketball player. Too tall, zero appeal to the masses.. most of them have virtually zero charisma/charm.



Michael Jordan
LeBron James



the rest

This man thinks Kareem is GOAT.

If Kareem is considered the GOAT to somebody, it's probably due to his longevity and overall basketball career.

Aren't those what you should use to judge a player on the GOAT list? Or does charisma/marketability play a role?

You sounded like peak and prime wise Kareem was not good enough to be called the goat and if your point was this, I disagree with it.

I don't really care if people have Kareem GOAT or not. People don't think the same way to draw the same conclusions on their GOAT lists. You and I probably think marketability/charisma has not play or role (logically, anyways), but some have used it. Not saying it's right, but it can influence somebody's criteria.

My reasoning as to why Kareem is considered GOAT is going off how much people look at what Kareem accomplished/stands out the most... and that's his longevity and total career. Going into his peak play:

Yeah, my bad if I came off that way. Kareem's peak is as good as any player who's played the game.

I have him at the #2 center behind Wilt. He was a great player. One of the best ever.

Re: Who has Kareem Abdul Jabbar as the GOAT in basketball?
 
IMO, Kareem is the greatest if we consider overall basketball resume (HS, college and NBA).

But my criteria is who is purely the best basketball player ever (as in ability), and while Kareem has a case to #1 on that, I feel like Jordan has the strongest case, followed by Wilt and Kareem.
