Although it was very evident who the GOAT was for a long time, the 'Chosen One' came into the equation and made this debate more complicated than ever.
There is a constant comparison between Michael Jordan and LeBron James but this time, let's focus on Jordan's best career dunks versus LeBron's.
Defensive Player of the Year was just a tad bit late in blocking the shot. The power and energy with which he slams the dunk were enough to silence Garnett, who is known to be the best or trash-talker the NBA has seen.

As soon as Michael Jordan crossed the half-court line, he and everybody knew a dunk was coming. His signature tongue came out and up he went over the 'Big Dog'.
Rasheed Wallace or "Mr. Technical Foul" probably would have wanted to hang his jersey and sneakers for good after being posterized like that by Bron. This was in the ECF, which makes it more impressive.
When you can't go over them, go around them. Jordan grabbed the rebound and went for the reverse dunk around the 7'7" Manute Bol.

LeBron makes the complicated process of taking off from the right-hand side of the paint, double pumping under Josh Howard and throwing down this slam dunk, a piece of cake.
If there is a GOAT of dunks, this is it. That too against one of his biggest rivals, Patrick Ewing. Nobody has suffered through the Bulls' dominance as he has and this dunk is the cherry on top.
