He carried the bulls to 6 championships with the help of small time players like Jordan and Pippen. Hands down the goat
19 LaVar Ball
He's so good he beat Michael Jordan 1 on 1. No one dominates quite like Lavar. Frankly he puts Shaq and Wilt to shame. Like many I believed Michael Jordan was GOAT. Then Lavar came and made michael look like a high schooler. Sadly snubbed of his MVP's by David stern for "basketball reasons".
