One who re-invented the Game: Michael Jordan

One who has the most professional individual records with least seasons played or missed seasons in his prime: Michael Jordan

One who has the most individual accholades:Michael Jordan

One who got better as the competition got tougher (reg sea -> POs -> Finals): Michael Jordan

One whose STATs get better & better as game gets much more competitive (reg sea -> POs-> Finals): Michael Jordan

One whose all-time status gets bigger & better as he goes up the Ladder (High School -> NCAA -> NBA): Michael Jordan

One whose highlights are played over & over & seem never ending & never feel outdated ('80s or '90s or even '00): Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is both Unanimous & consenses G.O.A.T. but if we desperately looking for runner up or "other than MJ" than its clearly Kareem.

NOTE: Its NOT about the swag, killer instinct, competitiveness, leadership etc etc. magic, bird, lbj, etc all have that. Even inconsistent inefficient kobe has that too. but these parameters cannot really be measured without looking at success of franchise or great coach & great teammates. Its much more than that. Read my above points again & again. You'll get it.
