GOAT Debate Rumors
Speaking with Jonathan Adams of Heavy, Caruso opened up about his relationship with LeBron and how his support has given him that extra confidence to move forward in his career. James had nothing but high praises for Caruso in previous interviews, with the Lakers superstar even calling him the “GOAT” a lot of times. While LeBron wasn’t saying Caruso is the greatest of all time, the fact is the feisty guard has earned the respect and admiration of the four-time champion. “Anytime you have the best player in the world giving you confidence, giving you his backing it just helps the game a little bit, gives you a little more confidence going forward,” Caruso said of LeBron.
The Blazers stud explained his reason behind picking Jordan as his own personal GOAT: “My NBA GOAT is Michael Jordan,” Lillard said, via Dame Nation on Twitter. “It’s just different when you talk about MJ. On the floor, it’s just never been nobody like him. Nobody electrified the crowd like him. The Air Jordan shoe, rocking the cradle, walking in the air, you know, it’s Jordan. … I don’t think it’s too much of a debate as far as who’s the GOAT, and I would say it’s Jordan.”
After heaping praise on MJ, Lillard did acknowledge LeBron James and how the Los Angeles Lakers star is also in contention for the GOAT title: “Bron, that’s definitely a conversation to be had, but I think most people will look at Jordan as the GOAT,” Lillard concluded.
