The GOAT debate in the NBA has always been a pretty heated discussion over the years, but it reached crazy levels after ESPN released the documentary on Michael Jordan’s final season with the Chicago Bulls.
The debate revolves around LeBron and Jordan. These two are considered the best players in the NBA history.
BETOnline used geotagged Twitter data on 100,000 tweets from the past week to determine where each of the 50 states fall on the GOAT debate.
26 states were in favor of Michael Jordan, while that left 24 putting their support behind LeBron James. Even that is still not a definitive answer.
It was recently revealed that Jordan finally agreed to release the footage from his final season only after watching LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers come back from a 3-1 series deficit to the 73-win Warriors and win the championship.
Let’s see how will things develop in the next few years.
