I would rework that first paragraph because you contradict yourself in the first few sentences, which makes your piece a bit confusing.
Sport is about competition therefore it’s natural to compare the greatest players, but you’re right about the factors that play a part for someone to be considered as the GOAT. However, I think what makes these debates interesting is what you’d think that plays a part in someone’s greatness. Statistics, scoring, humility, respect, and many more.
I loved The Last Dance, but I’m aware of the Jordan propaganda that’s an element of the documentary. I respect and like Jordan as a person, even though I’m not a basketball fan. To me, watching his commentary and insight of his thoughts was fascinating and interesting. But I get the people who don’t necessarily agree with his mentality and the way he played for all of those years.
Thanks for sharing, Andy!
