When it comes to the “Who is the greatest NBA player of all-time” debate, there are generally two players who are in the conversation.
Those two players are Michael Jordan (who is the GOAT) and LeBron James (who wants to be Mike but can’t be).
One person who disagrees with that take is former Detroit Pistons great, Isiah Thomas.
Thomas recently said that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the greatest of all time but that LeBron James will eventually surpass him as the GOAT.
“For now, Kareem is the best that’s ever done it. But by the time he’s done, LeBron James will be the best we have ever seen play the game of basketball,” said Thomas.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Kareem is certainly one of the best to ever lace up his shoes in the NBA but to put him above Jordan, just shows how much Isiah cannot stand MJ.
