Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic was asked by a reporter to choose his NBA GOAT (greatest of all-time) during a recent press conference. Without wasting too much time, Doncic chose Michael Jordan over LeBron James.
“Come on, it’s MJ.”, said Doncic.
I asked Luka – who is your GOAT
And what is your all time starting 5

The debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James has been constantly discussed over the years. Ever since LeBron started winning championships, people have compared him to Jordan. LeBron is obviously still playing and has continued to make a strong case for it.
Active players sometimes hesitate to answer the question why James is still an active player. There are others who have been more than willing to share their thoughts on the debate. Luka Doncic probably wasn’t keen on answering the question with LeBron in the Western Conference, but he still chose Jordan.
The Mavs have enough talent to upset the conference with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving leading the charge. Dallas is shaping up to be one of the most interesting teams to watch in the 2023-2024 season, and the Slovenian phenom is looking forward to surprising everyone.
