Lebron James won his 4th NBA Final on sunday. Many people believe that this concludes the G.O.A.T debate (for now). G.O.A.T stands for Greatest Of All Time.The two greatest basketball players of all time are undoubtedly Lebron James and Michael Jordan. The real debate though, is who is the real G.O.A.T.

Personally, I believe that there has never been a player like Lebron James. Well, first of all, let's look at some side-by-side stats.

Lebron James has played 17 seasons and has an average of 27.1 points per-game, 7.4 assists per-game and 7.4 rebounds per-game. Michael Jordan played 15 seasons in the NBA and averaged a whopping 30.1 points per-game, 5.3 assists per-game and 6.3 rebounds per-game.

Lebron James is a 4x NBA champion, a 4x NBA Finals MVP, a 4x NBA Most Valuable Player and a 16x NBA All-Star. Michael Jordan is a 6x NBA champion, a 6x NBA Finals MVP, a 5x NBA Most Valuable Player and a 14x NBA All-Star.

Now it's up to you to decide, who is your G.O.A.T?
