What are we debating about really?? You can't have a better career than MJ period. Lebron lost his chance when he lost his 1st 2 Finals and hounded up with Wade and Bosh.
And who determines GOAT? Public majority opinion? Outside of winning the next 6 championships in a row, Lebron really has no shot to sway the majority. He can certainly convince the kids of today who never watched MJ but the majority and legends of the game? That is very unlikely.
