Channing Frye Explains Why LeBron James Is His GOAT Choice


Former NBA player, Channing Frye has voiced his opinion in the never-ending ‘greatest of all time’ debate.

It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, that the 2016 NBA Champion chose his former teammate, LeBron James over Michael Jordan. His reasoning though, makes perfect sense:


“He’s ready to win again. He’s ready to show everybody how good he is and how much better he makes his teammates. He’s setting an example early on. Not only for the rest of the league, but for his teammates that he’s ready to win a championship for the Lakers….

His longevity is absolutely unheard of. I don’t think anybody will ever do what he’s done, going to that many championships in a row, doing Team USA… To me, he’s the best player of all time. I know that’s a wild argument, but, I haven’t played with Michael Jordan, I played with him [LeBron], I’ve seen his preparation for every game, I’ve seen the way he makes his teammates better.. he is the man!”



I’ve never been a big fan of this debate to begin with. Clyde Drexler always says that he isn’t a fan of comparing eras, and I absolutely agree with him on that. There will always be a ‘Team Jordan’ who is insulted to bring LeBron or anyone else into the GOAT debate, as well as a ‘Team LeBron’ who claims that LeBron is GOAT. Never have I seen anyone from either side change their opinion, and it probably won’t ever happen.
