For the past couple of years, one of the biggest topics of discussion has been the GOAT debate between LeBron James or Michael Jordan?
Appearing this week on “Da Windy City with Marc Carman,” Detroit Pistons rookie Cade Cunningham said that he believes James is the “GOAT” over Jordan. Cunningham explained that James is the best player that he has ever personally seen play.
“It’s hard for me to put somebody ahead of LeBron cause LeBron is the best player I’ve seen with my eyes,” said Cunningham. “Trust me I’ve seen all the Michael Jordan stuff, dude is different. I can’t argue with the fact that you think he is the ‘GOAT.’ But in my eyes I say LeBron.”
For the record, Cunningham was born in 2001, well after Jordan’s heyday. The GOAT debate isn’t going away anytime soon but it is always interesting to hear from today’s generation of NBA players whom they considered the GOAT.
