Portland Trail Blazers

The great debate of who is the ‘Greatest Of All Time’ lives on.

Now more than ever, with ESPN’s The Last Dance premiering with new episodes each weekend documenting Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, many sports fans are deliberating who indeed is the greatest basketball player ever to play the game. 

MJ? LeBron James? Wilt Chamberlain? Magic Johnson?

Our own Channing Frye, NBA Champion and co-host of the Talkin’ Blazers Podcast alongside Emmy Award winner Dan Sheldon, is the next to give his opinion on the G.O.A.T.

Not gonna lie, I wasn’t a Jordan fan. I’m from Phoenix [Arizona]. I’m a [Charles] Barkley guy, a Kevin Johnson guy, I’m a ‘Thunder Dan’ [Dan Majerle] guy. So, as much as everyone is shocked, I never had Jordan on my top player of all time anyways… I have LeBron above Michael all time. — Channing Frye 

Before his 14-year playing career in the NBA, Frye tore through the state of Arizona in both high school (St. Mary’s School) and college (University of Arizona, 2002-05). In his four-year career with the Wildcats, Frye averaged 13.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 blocks per game. 

No doubt about it, there is a heavy argument for both sides as to who is the G.O.A.T: Michael Jordan or LeBron James. 

It’s unfortunate that the two were never in the league at the same time as one another. 


That would have been quite the show.
