Postgame Press: Ultimate question: GOAT or BOAT?

This is it. Today is the day. To all my avid readers: I know you have always wondered how I feel about the Jordan-LeBron debate. You must wait no longer. Who is the GOAT? It is one of the most highly-debated topics in sports. It seems inevitable that this will come up when a conversation […]
