For NBA legend Kareem-Abdul Jabbar, though, it's an impossible matter to settle. In a chat with basketball insider Marc Stein, he explained why:

The question can never be answered because players from the past were trained under different restrictions and played under different rules,» the Lakers icon explained. «Then you have to ask what to give more weight to: Scoring, defense, assists?

How about we just discuss the O'GOAT (One of the Greatest of All-Time)?»
