Default Re: Jordan & Duncan should be the only considerations when it comes to who the GOAT is

Jordan > Duncan because MJ won the FMVP in each of his title runs whereas Timmy did not win in 2007.

Your favorite player (Kobe, Shaq, LBJ, KAJ, Russell, Wilt, whoever that may be) can't be considered as the GOAT if he has lost in the Finals.

/end of discussion

PS - Havlicek never lost too but he was only FMVP once in 8 titles. Mikan never lost too but he was never FMVP in 5 BAA/NBA titles.
