Default Dirk says when Lebron passes Kareem he's the GOAT



I just couldn't disagree more, and I found it surprising considering he beat Lebron for his only ring. The all time scoring title is a longevity title anyway Lebron is in his 20th season and still going MJ played 14 seasons.

I grant that he's a top 5 player because of making 10 Finals and being up there stat wise in several categories but how do you lose 6 times in the Finals and be the greatest of all time? His team lost by a record margin to the Spurs in 5 games, in all honesty if he was the GOAT we had no business winning that series then. People want to give him credit for the wins but not blame for the losses. He's just not the GOAT, but he's still great.

Maybe that?s the reason. Dirk can say he beat the goat.

The if he passes Kareem conditional is kind of meaningless, because it?s just trivia. He?s already achieved goat status by now or not.

I don't think Dirk cares nor did he really want to address that question. I think his response will create the least amount of friction towards his image. So in Dirk fashion, he took the high road.

Even Dirk is wrong from time to time.
