    Default Is the GOAT criteria at least 10 Finals? LBJ, Kareem, and Russell only three to do it

    Is this a good starting point when assessing who is the league's GOAT (Greatest Of All Time).

    10 Finals is a great starting point in my mind:

    LeBron
    Russell
    Kareem

    Anyone that wants to contend for top 3 GOAT needs at least 10 Finals, we need a consistent performer that does not have a lot if any first round exits.

    Russell and LeBron are the only ones with zero 1st round exits among all top 20 players.
    And they both have 10 Finals. The top 3 is locked as far as I'm concerned.

    LeBron
    Russell
    Kareem

    If you have a 1st round exit and don't have at least 10 Finals you do not qualify.

    If that's a Finals loss then what are 1st round losses?

    Why did MJ only make 6 Finals while the top 3 GOATS Kareem, LeBron, and Russell all made at least 10?

    Lack of impact, dedication, and Longevity

    He's lucky he made 6, and only because he had the best supporting cast and coach every single year of his career and horrible comp.

    10 > 6

    I can't believe you could down grade three LeBron Finals losses to MJ 1st round losses and he would still have 7 to 6 Finals

    Nice top 3 list. How many of those are serial floppers? Embarrassing flops to boot.

    Making it is all that really matters. Winning the championship isn't that important. Its kind of like making an all-star team or pro-bowl. No one really cares if your team actually won the game or not, just making it was the accomplishment.

    The 90's Bills love this type of thinking.

    They're one of the GOAT teams now.
