I agree this team is super loaded still what Curry can do is very impressive his handles along with his shooting ability is rare.

We can also cherry pick stats. He never won a series without Pippen.

Bulls were even more loaded. They were contenders when they replaced Jordan with a D-League type of talent.

And Duncan never repeated. We can go on and on with every player's flaws.

When looking at careers in totality, MJ's career surpasses everyone from both an individual and team perspective.

No he doesn't. Russell surpasses from team perspective. Wilt surpasses him from individual perspective.

Better stats. Jordan is never touching 50 ppg and 25 rbs.

Key word: TOTALITY


MJ has the better personal stats than Russell, and better team achievements than Wilt.

Well, goat list is subjective. Not everyone that has the same criterias as you. Some advantages winning a lot ( in that case Russell would be goat). Others emphasize the individual productions ( in that case it would be wilt).

He doesn't.

If games were only played in the regular-season, Wilt would be the unanimous GOAT. Unfortunately for him the NBA has a postseason and finals, where MJ simply played on another level.

In terms of sheer peak numbers without considering context, Ilt is probably the GOAT. But peak numbers isn't the be all, end all.

MJ is the all time leader in PPG and PER for both regular season and playoffs.

MJ won 5 regular seasons mvp while Ilt won 4.

MJ has 6 fmvp while Ilt has 1.

MJ's career playoff scoring average is 33.4 while Ilt's is 22.5

MJ's career playoff PER is 28.6 while Ilt's is 22.7.

MJ won 10 scoring titles while Ilt won 7.

I can go on and on.

The simple fact is that no player was as CONSISTENTLY DOMINANT like MJ. Some might've peaked a tad higher or some had better longevity but no one maintained a level like MJ for as long. The proof is in the numbers.
