A GOAT Knows a GOAT

The age old question, LeBron or Michael? Remember this used to be Kobe or Michael. Now LeBron has surpassed Kobe apparently. 

Golfing legend Tiger Woods gets asked to weigh in on who he'd pick as the NBA G.O.A.T. between LeBron James and Michael Jordan.  

"They're both great in different ways," Woods said during his pre-tournament press conference at The Players Championship. "I think that, if you look at MJ, he was a prolific scorer and played defense like no other. He was always First Team All-Defense. But LeBron's different. He's like a hybrid of MJ and Magic (Johnson), which is so different, because he's bringing the ball up a lot. MJ never really did that.

"He had (Scottie Pippen) as a point-forward a lot of times and you would think that's kind of LeBron-ish. But they're very different in how they help both teams. What MJ did, getting to the Finals and dominating the league like he did, he did it in a different way than LeBron's doing it, just because of the nature of their body, the build, their game and their mental make up."

"At the end of the day, they both win," Woods said. "And they're both guys that we look at and say, 'It's unbelievable what they're doing. They're just changing the game and how it's played. We didn't know it could be played that way.' And they both have done it."  

"What separates those people ... like LeBron, or what I'm thinking of with MJ or (Wayne) Gretzky, it's just the duration," Woods said. "They're able to do it, not just for one year, not just for one game, not just for a little spell. They're able to do it for a number of years and accumulate highlights that we will always look at. They're peppered in our memories.

"... What LeBron has done for what, 15 seasons now? It's just remarkable. It's that type of longevity, and to be able to be up for that long a period of time, and to be able to adjust as well. We all know, as we age, we're not going to be as athletic as we used to be. You have to do it different ways. To be fluid and adjust and still be that talented and that good? Hats off to, not just LeBron, but the people I just named."

A vary articulate detailed answer from Tiger. A simple Bron or Jordan would have sufficed, but good to see Tiger knows his stuff. I have another question, Jack or Tiger? I'm going with Jack until Tiger breaks his Major record.
