Michael Jordan is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time, largely due to his six NBA championships. However, Paul Pierce suggests that LeBron James winning his fifth ring could surpass Jordan in the GOAT debate.

At 39, LeBron might be facing a limited championship window. Despite this, the Los Angeles Lakers remain in the play-in tournament hunt. They’re currently sitting at 9th place in the Western Conference with a 41-33 record, keeping a title run a possibility.

If LeBron and the Lakers can secure a spot in the playoffs and eventually win the NBA Finals, Pierce now thinks the GOAT debate would be settled in LeBron’s favor.


“The Lakers get to the Finals and they happen to win a championship this year,” Pierce said on Wednesday’s episode of FS1’s ‘Undisputed.’ “LeBron James will be the undisputed GOAT.”
