What happened 300 years ago is not relevant to what happened during the lives of people that are still living today.

Galaxy brain rick, history isn’t important! What happened in history doesn’t pertain to people today so fuck it!

how does that history repeating itself quote go...and why you should accurately depict it so it doesn’t happen again...

I won't take any politician seriously until I hear somebody trying to simplify the tax system. The more complicated it gets the more it benefits the tax dodgers.

It is a shame that Christopher Columbus interrupted the Utopian societies of the pre-European Americas. They were so peaceful and just.

Wilt Chamberlain is the GOAT.

 

The Democratic debate is giving me a migraine.  So much stupidity on that one stage.

He’s definitely the goat of basketball though, sorry Rick, wilt chamberlain lost year in and year out to Bill Russell, so he can’t be the goat.

Brady is the goat in football.

Babe Ruth is the goat in baseball. (This isn’t debatable, he would’ve been a hall of fame pitcher as well had he not switched to being a position player.)

Gretzky is the goat in hockey.

Then you have to probably put Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, and Michael Phelps in there as the goat of their sports.

 

Ultimately I think Ali is the greatest, not only because of his impact in the ring, but also out of it.

I didn't know Chinese people liked basketball I just thought they made the shoes.

Yao Ming and Stephon Marbury did wonders for the sport in China.

Wilt may have lost to the Celtics, but they also always had better teams, and basketball is a team game. The NBA record book can simply be called the Wilt Chamberlain individual accomplishment list.  Jordan played in a watered down league.  He is the best Guard of all time, but I would take Wilt over Jordan any day of the week.  Nobody can touch Wilts dominance.

Wilt was also a Republican, so he gets points for that as well.

 

GOAT of all sports?  I'd probably go with Gretzky.  I'm not a hockey guy, but that man was a God.

Basketball n Football are nothing but a bunch of money hungry pre-madonna pussies.  All liberals too.  Hockey is the only major sport where men have to earn their keep for pennies on the dollar compared to said sports.
 

Also, Rick is 100% correct that Wayne Fucking Gretzky is #1 of all time. No one in the history of sports has dominated their profession as he did.

Tulsi and Yang are the only remotely sane Democrats. They’re wrong but not evil.

The average height of NBA players has not changed since the 60s.

 

Wilt is the undisputed GOAT.

Competition matters, clearly you don’t even want to acknowledge the discrepancy between eras. Wilt isn’t even the best center of all time, I would take Shaq, who played in an era with much tougher competition at his position. Outside of Bill Russell, there wasn’t anyone in the NBA back then who could match up with Wilt.

If you don’t study and follow basketball like I do you’d just look at raw numbers and of course think Wilt was the best, but that just isn’t the case.

Outside of Bob Pettit, there simply weren’t any other big men that were good in Wilts era. Shaq played against several hall of fame big men, defensive specialists too. David Robinson, Alonzo mourning, Chris Webber, dikembe Mutumbo, Shawn Kemp, Hakeem, Patrick Ewing, and Vlade Divac. The list goes on though and you really can not compare eras.

This is why Michael Jordan is the undisputed GOAT of basketball.

Wayne Gretzky had a decent shot, decent speed, good but not amazing hands, and he was built like a twig.

He has more assists than anyone else has points, and eight of the top ten scoring title win margins. 

He was the smartest hockey player in history and it's not even close to being not even close.

Of major professional sports, maybe Don Bradman is the ultimate GOAT (cricket IS that popular), but other than that? Gretzky.
