I don't understand the "necessity" of a single, unanimous player.

Why not "tier" the lists? Players and positions and eras are so varied...

I got MJ as GOAT but KAJ has a good argument too.

Why do we always have to have a #1?


Why can't we just pay homage for those that played this great game?

As a Jordan fan, KAJ is the only player IMO that objectively has a small argument against Jordan. He has it all - Dominant on both ends, great production in the regular season AND the post season (didn't drop off dramatically in the playoffs like some other greats), MVP's, FMVP's, rings, longevity, etc.

HE is the player that should be 2nd on everybodies list.

Except that Russell has more rings and Wilt was better than Kareem when Kareem entered the league.

I had him #1 over Jordan for the longest time until someone convinced me that anyone can put up those kind of stats if you're playing with the #3 GOAT of all time Magic Johnson.

And then someone told you that Magic didn't play in the 70s.

Bill was on the most stacked team in NBA history. Impossible to say Russell is better for solely that reason(and he's not even close to KAJ anyway).

As for Wilt:

That link will probably black out so I'll edit if it does.
