For Shaq, MJ’s impact on the game transcends statistics; it’s about the intangibles—the killer instinct, the clutch performances, and the ability to elevate teammates.

Shaq also acknowledges the greatness of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant but maintains that MJ’s legacy remains unparalleled.

JJ Redick, known for his sharpshooting skills, takes a different stance. He argues that the GOAT conversation should be more nuanced. While he respects Jordan’s achievements, Redick emphasizes the evolution of the game. He points out that today’s players face different challenges—increased athleticism, advanced analytics, and global exposure.

Redick highlights LeBron James as a legitimate contender for the GOAT title. LeBron’s versatility, longevity, and impact both on and off the court make him a worthy candidate. Additionally, Redick gives credit to Kobe Bryant’s Mamba mentality and his five championships.

Ultimately, Redick suggests that the GOAT debate isn’t a one-size-fits-all discussion; it’s about appreciating greatness across eras.
