Default GOAT

Bill Russell a GOAT on and Off the court passes. People in the era of hyperbole this is what a GOAT is. They are few and far between.

As a childhood Laker fan, Iím on the fence about Larry Bird and particularly Danny Ainge.

But yeah. He had it all.

Chamberlain dominated all the offensive stats head to head. Except for wins.

He was a Great Of All Time but if I had to pick one as Greatest of All Time it would have to be Michael Jordan.

That Goat word is tough as its impossible to measure different players from different eras. What Russell did was win 11 championships and averaged 15+ points per game and an amazing 22plus rebounds per game. Also off the court there is no comparing him and Jordan. Being young I couldnt really appreciate how dominate him and wilt were.
