Isiah Thomas opened up again about the GOAT debate between LeBron James and Michael Jordan.
The NBA Hall of Famer explained why he thinks James is the GOAT.
“So when you look at what the ‘GOAT’ means for us in terms of lifting us up in the society, speaking for the voiceless in our community; you can be a champion on the floor and you can be a champion off the floor.
So what he’s done statistically – the numbers don’t lie. But also what he’s done OUTSIDE of the playing field, that doesn’t lie either. So you know, in terms of being a complete basketball player in terms of passing, dribbling, shooting, rebounding… no one has done what he’s done statistically in EVERY single category.
Now we’ve had players to dominate one category. But we’ve never had a player that’s come in and dominate it in so many statistical categories across the board. And that’s LeBron James,” Thomas told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.
