After reaching 40,000 regular-season NBA points and counting, can we officially crown LeBron James the greatest NBA player of all time?

I know some of you will root for Michael Jordan, who has long been viewed as the GOAT, but hear me out. First, let’s find some common ground. Can we agree that James has surpassed Larry Bird? Wilt Chamberlain? Magic Johnson? Bill Russell? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? Kobe Bryant?

The “GOAT” debate exists in every sport from boxing to golf, and you can hear the debate in barbershops, arcades, bars, living rooms and on sports talk shows across the country. Why do we argue about who is the best? Well, for starters, it’s fun.
