For years, NBA fans all over the world have engaged in the never-ending debate on the greatest player of all time. And, as you may know by now, it's almost impossible to reach a consensus.

Old-school fans will always lean towards Michael Jordan or older players, while younger fans would claim that LeBron James has done enough merits already to become the undisputed GOAT.

That's why the guys from 'I Am An Athlete' had to settle the debate once and for all and asked a guy who grew up looking forward to Jordan but actually played side by side with LeBron: Dwyane Wade.

Dwyane Wade Says Michael Jordan Is The GOAT, Not LeBron James

“I come from the Jordan era, so I’m biased. Michael Jordan will always be my GOAT… I played basketball because of Michael Jordan… All of us have our own individual opinions… LeBron is going to be the GOAT for a lot of generations… [Jordan] will be my GOAT… I made it out of the hood because I’ve seen a dude, number 23 play the game of basketball at a level where I was like I want to do some of that," Wade confessed.

Wade Says LeBron Could Still Become The GOAT

“LeBron is one of my good friends, I have so much respect for what he’s doing now, what he’s done, and what he will eventually do… It will definitely be an argument that needs to be had. If LeBron ends up the number scorer of all-time, top five in assists and top five rebounds, with four, five, or six championships, you cannot do nothing but have the conversation of who is the GOAT," Wade concluded.

Well, that's a pretty objective answer, and it's coming from someone who saw firsthand Jordan's prime as a Chicago kid and that was right there with LeBron when he won his first two rings. So I don't know about you, guys, but I'm cool with Wade's opinion.
