As LeBron James continues to impress in this year’s Finals, a lot of basketball fans are considering to revamp their all-time lists, putting the Lakers superstar as the ‘Greatest Player of All-Time’. Former Lakers forward Metta World Peace may be one of them.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, World Peace, who played with Kobe Bryant and against Michael Jordan, gave his stance on the ‘GOAT’ debate, putting the three-time champion ahead of these two other legends that he looked up to.
“@KingJames is the goat. Never thought I would say that over my brother 24 and my favorite mj. I was an Allstar in mj Jersey 23. I changed my number for one season to honor a legend. But the King is the greatest athlete to ever touch this galaxy. Better than the aliens too.”
