While not using the word GOAT, the Lakers' legendary head coach Pat Riley, who is currently with Miami Heat as an NBA executive, has selected his more complete player.

Pat Riley was the head coach of the showtime era legends and saw first hand what was different about Magic Johnson from the rest of the league players.

The Lakers showtime era legend, Pat Riley, is saying LeBron is the goat right there. Riley knows the ball, so he is an authorized voice to choose who is the best NBA player of all time.

"LeBron is in a class of his own. He is unique. He's Michael, he's Magic, he's Kobe, he's Jerry West, he's Bill Russell. You take all of these great, great players and put them in a blender and mix them up. LeBron's got something from all of them in him." Said Riley.

For the vast majority, LeBron James continues to be 2nd overall best

LeBron James is still active, and has had a long run in the NBA, for twenty years and is about to be playing his year 21. Many still believe Michael Jordan is number one over LeBron James. Usually depends on the fan's era, as many have their favorites depending on the age.
