“Despite What Michael Jordan Has Done”: Paul Pierce Reveals the Condition for LeBron James to Become the GOAT of All GOATs

There’s been talk in the NBA community that LeBron James may have a chance to surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest of all time if he accomplishes one key thing this year. Although it's a tough task, many believe LeBron is capable of achieving it. NBA legend Paul Pierce recently agreed with this narrative on FS1’s UNDISPUTED, claiming that if LeBron can lead the Lakers to win the championship from the ninth seed in the West, he would solidify his place as the GOAT. Pierce emphasized LeBron's past successes in pressure situations, such as the 2016 NBA Finals comeback from a 3-1 deficit against the Warriors.

Additionally, he mentioned LeBron's All-Time Scoring Record and the possibility of reaching 40k points to strengthen his argument.

On the other hand, Skip Bayless, known for his skepticism of LeBron's GOAT status, mentioned that winning the In-Season Tournament could potentially boost LeBron's case. Bayless acknowledged LeBron's achievements but still remains hesitant to crown him as the greatest of all time, as he currently has LeBron as the ninth spot on his all-time greatest players list.
