Throughout the course of NBA history, people have debated about who’s the greatest player of all time.
Old-schoolers will lean toward Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell, whereas younger players will obviously talk about players from their own time.
At the end of the day, it’s all subjective, and there’s no objective criteria to determine who’s the undisputed GOAT.
With that in mind, former NBA superstar Dwight Howard had a somewhat unusual choice for GOAT, taking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan as 1A and 1B.
Howard then chose LeBron James and Kobe Bryant as No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.
The former Defensive Player of the Year later explained his case by stating that it’s strange that people never bring big men into the GOAT conversation, stating that Kareem scored the most points in NBA history in less time than LeBron and with no three-pointers.
Truth be told, it’s crazy to think that people don’t bring in Kareem’s name more often in this debate.
Even with LeBron breaking his scoring record, Kareem had the résumé to be considered the best to ever do it, including six championships and then most MVPs ever.
Kareem’s durability and two-way dominance have been unmatched, as James hasn’t played strong defense in years, and Jordan didn’t play for as long as Kareem did.
Of course, Howard’s take will most likely fuel the debate on social media again, and fans might not agree with him, but he knows a thing or two about hoops, and also got to play with two of the four players mentioned in his list.
