So, who does NBA legend Allen Iverson take if he had to pick between GOATs Michael Jordan and LeBron James?

“LeBron, I think, to me is the best overall basketball player that we’ll ever see,” Iverson explained to Spears. “If you look in the dictionary and look up basketball player, there’ll be a picture of LeBron. But for me it’s so different because Mike was everything to me. He gave me the vision. He made me want to play basketball. He’s my everything. I wanted to actually be like him, like the commercial, ‘Be like Mike,’ I really wanted to be him. I’m still starstruck every time I see him. I’m still nervous every time. Because he’s Mike to me. He’s my guy.

“So there’ll never be no one at the top of my list besides Mike. But LeBron is just everything that you want in a basketball player. He’s a total package. He’s God’s gift to the basketball world.”

So basically he knows Lebron is better but he can’t let go of his childhood hero. Sounds like most posters here lol

LeBitch is good, but no killer instinct. Give me peak Lebron’s athleticism with MJ or Kobe’s dedication and then you have the greatest.

When Jordan was in the finals it felt inevitable that he would win it - everyone just knew. There was something different about it and I've never seen it in any other sport before or since.

Some of the weaker players today make Lebron cry with a touch foul. MJ would have made him sit down and holler-cry, while kicking his feet.

Except for winning titles, of course. This is a defining factor between the two. Not to mention, Jordan is arguably the greatest on ball defender to ever play the game.

What we didnt see is Iverson checking his phone for that wire transfer ding.

Lebiatch would have been schooled by Jordan and many others back in the 90s. Hell he wouldn't have been able to handle Reggie Millers cocky looks.

Mike would have made LeBron quit. He’s not mentally tough enough to play in the Jordan era.

It insults Mike to have people compare such an unskilled and unaccomplished beggar to him as far as basketball.

There are about 300 other players on between Mike and Lebron on the greatness chart.
