Jason Williams Breaks His Silence, Proclaims LeBron James the G.O.A.T.

2 Min Read

Former Miami Heat point guard Jason Williams decided to weigh in on who he believes is the greatest basketball player of all time.

His pick? Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James.


Williams said that his choice came down to three players: Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and James.

“White Chocolate” thinks that James’ unique combination of physical build, basketball IQ and raw skill gives him the ability to lead the league in all five major statistical categories “if he wanted.”

Williams also paid homage to the late Bryant, calling him a “basketball savant” and claiming that he worked harder than everyone else.

As for Jordan, Williams has respect for his competitive intensity and six championships, but he doesn’t believe that he could dominate the game across all statistical categories like James.

The greatest-of-all-time debate is always being had in basketball circles, but has received a new spark with the airing of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary on Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls.

And while James hasn’t surpassed Jordan’s six titles, he still seems to have plenty left in the tank.

The King is averaging 25.7 points per game and a career-high 10.6 assists in his age-35 season and will attempt to bring a title back to Los Angeles should the NBA season resume.
