Gretzky was easily the most dominant against his peers. Jordan is pretty clearly the NBA GOAT as well and is a worldwide icon. As for Brady, he’s an incredibly good player but his number of Super Bowls are the only argument he has for being the GOAT and that’s a team achievement not an individual one
Oh please, really?
The only constants in the Pats "dynasty" are Brady and Belichick. Everyone else has come and gone, and aside from Randy Moss he has never had a bona fide #1 diva receiver.
They win because of preparation, execution, and coaching...and Brady's decision-making under pressure.
Plus the fact that Brady is still playing at 40+ when even guys younger than him are hitting the wall, in an incredibly violent sport...no other player has had that level of longevity and consistency, aside from Jerry Rice, and when he was Brady's age he was no longer a top player.
You didn't even mention his longevity, the guy has 6 SBs in 9 appearances over 18 seasons as a starter. WTF?
He led the league in passing at age 40 and won the MVP. C'mon guy.
Counterpoint to Jordan, you can use the same "Team Game" argument against him.
Neither Jordan nor Kobe never won without Phil. Boom, done. Their success was entirely dependent on having a coach who could manage their egos, and a great supporting cast with another HOFer for good measure.
Without Phil (or Shaq or Pippen), there is a possibility that neither one of those guys ever get a ring.
