Default I'd take Russell > Jordan.

If I was starting a franchise, I absolutely would take Russell > Jordan. Just my personal preference.

When he said, "you pick Bill Russell", he was dead ass serious. Dude was the ultimate winner, and team player.

"The way I play, my team wins." Gave me goosebumps.

Haha OP is such a noob. He went from calling Russell a better version of Dwight Howard to GOAT in 24 hours.

He and Russell are the two strongest GOAT candidates by far in my book. Take either one, and you're good to go.

I personally have those two, as well as Magic and Wilt. Magic never sniffed a losing season, and took an underachieiving team to a world title in his first season. Then, he guided them to nine Finals and five titles in 12 seasons. And, after he retired, the Lakers returned to the same level they were at before he arrived.

As for Chamberlain...as John Wooden said...had Wilt an Russell swapped rosters...and likely it would have been Wilt with all of those rings. An along the way, Wilt dominated his peers, including post-season play, like no other player in NBA history.

That's just phill Jackson having a bias towards his era of nba players.. In today's game bill Russell would be great .. But at 6'9 would be an extremely undersized center .. No doubt he'd be great but he wouldn't dominate the same way

Russell was actually a shade under 6-10...barefoot. In today's NBA he would measure 6-11, or the same height as Dwight Howard. Furthermore, he had a 7-4 wingspan, and world ranked high jumping ability. I have no doubt that he woulld outreach Howard in a leaping contest.

I agree, I think these 2 are the only ones you can make a strong GOAT argument for..I always rank them tied for number .
