Former NBA player Jason Williams is chiming in on the GOAT debate.
During the latest episode of the Jason Williams podcast, Williams revealed that he would pick LeBron if he had to choose between the Lakers star and Michael Jordan.
“For sure, as close as it can be between anybody,” Williams said. “I’m picking LeBron. Bro, I mean, I’m never going to change. … I’m not a big stat guy. I mean, I think it matters a little bit, but I just look at you as a player. … I don’t really look at championships rings like that.”
First, Williams doesn’t think Jordan wins as many titles without Scottie Pippen.
“Jordan don’t get those rings without Pippen. Pippen don’t get the rings without Jordan. … It takes a team,” Williams said.
At the end of the day, Williams thinks LeBron is more skilled than Jordan.
“I think LeBron could do more as a basketball player, like handle the ball, pass the ball, you know, just stuff like that,” Williams said. “But that’s not to say Jordan couldn’t do some things better than LeBron could do. I just think LeBron could do more things better.”
