Damian Lillard went with Michael Jordan when asked to choose between Bulls legend and Lakers superstar LeBron James.
The Michael Jordan vs LeBron James GOAT debate is the one that has gripped the discussion of online basketball for the past 5 years. James has always had a few fans who advertised him as the GOAT from his days in Miami.
That narrative came to a head when James led the Cavaliers to a 3-1 comeback against Golden State’s 73 wins in the 2016 NBA Finals.
He is now in his 19th season as James continues to develop his resume and dominate the sport like few others. Less than a year ago, James won the MVP trophy in the 4th final of his career.

Damian Lillard prefers Michael Jordan to LeBron James
Blazers superstar Damian Lillard has been one of the league’s most unstoppable offensive players during his career. Dame burst onto the scene after a 4-year college career with Weber State and even impressed Kobe’s tastes with her game.
Most guards invariably tend to model their mid-range game on maestros such as MJ and Kobe. So it’s an almost unanimous opinion among star guards in the NBA that Jordan is the best at doing it.
Dame is certainly no different from the rest of the NBA when it comes to the GOAT debate. He made his opinion on this discussion public through a tweet last night.

However, all-time greats like Magic Johnson are ready to always give LeBron James a shot at winning the GOAT crown. Magic believes the Akron Hammer can firmly anchor their name in the conversation with another championship this year.
The Los Angeles Lakers are sporting a new look for the coming season, having added Westbrook, Melo and Malik Monk, among others this offseason. It will be interesting to watch them take on the challenge of the Western Conference playoff scene.
