A very tough loss but I am proud of the performance.

Whats really amazing about your celtics team is that on paper they really don't have any business being this good. Especially without Hayward. They remind me of the 2018 team without Kyrie. I thought philly was easily the best team in the east but that doesnt seem to be the case. There are five legitimate teams that can make it out of the east now and if you can cement that home court advantage you'll put yourselves ahead of the pack.

Happy to announce the arrival of David West aboard the "LeBron is the GOAT" train. The old heads wont relent their nostalgia and sentimentality easily but we will continue to spread the word until the gospel is on everyone's lips. As we continue on our mission, we are energized by the fact that the king has not relented in his quest and will only equip us with more feats to persuade the heretics. Slowly but surely, the King James gospel will prevail.

Mehhh. Two decades since the GOAT really retired and 2/3rd still consider him the GOAT. Could be better but a lot of other oldies in different fields have it worse

Don’t be alarmed, the bulk of the 36% represent the younger generation who for the most part have to rely on YouTube and other sources to watch the GOAT.
If anything, this is a testament of the GOAT’s dominance considering he still beats everyone in that conversation despite retiring 16 years ago, which ironically is the number of years LeBum has been playing in the league.

Lol you make a good point. Still too close to 50% for comfort

It's still a remarkable feat to have as many as 64% especially in this new social media age and with fewer people who saw the GOAT play active on social media

I wonder what part of that 64% are kobtards who notoriously dont like LeBron or maybe those who think Kareem is the GOAT. I see a lot of the younger generation who have never seen jordan play who think hes the GOAT out of hatred for LeBron or just because they are in awe of Jordans status as a cultural icon. In the end it wont matter, I'm glad you understand the trend. An MVP trophy and a couple of rings later we will have enough to bury your "goat" in the history books where he belongs. Who do you think is going to run this world in the future? Thats right the dreaded younger generation and trust me, LeBum will reign supreme. Its the cycle of life, so he should be alarmed. You and your goat are outdated. Theres a new GOAT in town and his name is GOAT James.

A while ago many will not even entertain the thought. And then a few brave souls dared utter the words. Slowly the gospel began to spread like a wild fire. What started as a minority is now very close to 40% . Now hes consensus number 2 and hes not even done. What do you think is going to happen by the time he retires?

Actually you should be worried LeNomad is way behind the curve. In the NFL for instance most people already consider Tom Brady the unanimous GOAT. In football it's Messi and Ronaldo. And they are still active

Recency bias isn't even enough to rank him over MJ as we speak

The fact that even in a mostly Generation Z dominated internet an almost 2/3rd majority still consider MJ the GOAT is remarkable. Especially considering that the number flies to over 70% among his basketball peers.

By the time Kawhi and PG deliver a crushing blow to your guy come playoffs this whole charade will be extinguished

Nobody hates your LeNomad. They just know he's the faux GOAT mimicking and copying MJ both on and off the court and are appalled by that

If LeNomad was deserving of the title there wouldn't be need for the younger generation to take over. It's not even about ageism. When Tom Brady surpassed Joe Montana in the GOAT conversation nobody waited for no younger generation to give him his title.

MJ did two 3peats! Why do you think he was crowned the GOAT. Do you know how difficult that is to do in any level of Sports?

LMAO "Nobody hates LeBron" sets the theme for everything you just wrote, erroneous and delusional. LeBron mimicks MJ on and off the court? MJ as in magic Johnson cause i know thats certainly not jordan LMAO! LeBron is not Kobe. He has some of Jordans game, some of magics, some of moses malone, some of Dr J. As a player everyone knows his game is different from Jordans, hes more magic than jordan. And dont even compare him with jordan off the court. Literally the only thing lebron copied from jordan is his number. Space jam is just a business decision.

You're comparing joe montana to michael jordan? who is seen as "black jesus" in the black community? the face of the NBA in the 90s, whose shoes are the most sort after of all time. That mythical status is what you're comparing joe montana to? LMAO! Joe montana wasnt even the greatest footballer of all time. He may have been the greatest quarterback but jerry rice was and still is by far the GOAT in american football. At least in most peoples eyes.

Yet somehow people in the older generation think KAJ is still the GOAT. Jordan popularized the sport, he had a good marketing team in an inferior era with less scrutiny. No one said hes a bum. He had his turn but enough with the revisionism. He was not a better basketball player than LBJ. Its that simple. When people call messi or ronaldo the GOAT no one talks about rings or 3 peats in a team sports. Its all about who has the most impact on a team and when you put lebron against anyone in history no one even comes close.

Unanimous GOAT? As in quarterback? granted but American football didnt have an MJ, nor does football. If you tell me someone has surpassed Ali in recent times then maybe thats a fair comparison.

Thats my point about the haters and false witnesses. People who havent seen Jordan play but think hes the GOAT out of hatred or like i said, MJ status as a cultural icon.

And no, twitter isnt dominated by generation z, over 50% of twitter users are over 30 and are old enough to have MJ nostalgia or bias. Doesnt matter in the end, like i said, our numbers keep growing by the year and by the time LeBron is done it wont even be close.

Yes Paul George and Kawhi will probably stop the lakers and thats why we need that MVP trophy. Just to pad the resume a bit more. Make no mistake, nothing can derail destiny.

Rubbish. Only Bronsexuals are busy confusing sports banter for hate. Isn't it Bronsexuals that lie unprovoked that MJ got suspended and swear he got his dad killed. That's real hate not the piffle you're chatting here.

Of course LeNomad is more Magic but averaged 6 more shots per game. I don't know why Bronsexuals will not stop propagating this silly myth

Magic is a career 13 shots per game guy who averaged 11asts per game

LeNomad is a career 19.6 shots per game guy averaging 7 asts per game while mostly surrounded by shooters

But naïve ninjas swear LeNomad is a pass first guy a la Magic. We don't believe you you need more people

What the bloodclart are you chatting about? What does race have to do with anything? Blacks are barely an 8th of the entire US population.

Jerry Rice?? Was Jerry Rice a Quarterback? WTF are you smoking??

By player and by position Tom Brady has surpassed both Jerry Rice and Joe Montana. In Super Bowl rings, Superbowl MVPs and in League MVPs, no sane human being after watching Tom Brady win 3 of the last 5 Superbowls is comparing him to Montana or a receiver who can't even throw himself the ball

Who are these older generation that think KAJ is the GOAT? KAJ who was arguably not even the best player in most of the titles the Lakers won?

He's a much better player than your LeNomad who is a career 38% shooter from anywhere outside 3ft. More offensive moves in the perimeter and the post, better offensive rebounder, better shot blocker, better defender, better free throw shooter, better in the clutch better at everything and was more efficient than LeNomad despite not playing in an analytics era. Let that sink in.

Jordan has the highest PER both in the regular season and postseason.

Tagging Messi and Ronaldo the GOAT is directly related to their titles and goals record, stop blowing fallacies

Cristiano Ronaldo has won more CL titles (5) and CL Golden Boots than anyone else in the modern era. He also led Madrid to a 3peat. A feat that had never been achieved in CL history. Sounds familiar?

Messi is a close second with 4. Stop telling fibs
