    One of the most contentious GOAT debates of the last 20 years has been Fed vs Nadal vs Djokovic

    The fact that LeBron is the first word you posted in a thread about MJ being the GOAT tells me that deep down you know he might not be. Seems like it's yourself you're trying to convince here.

    You're just saying that because you suck at it.

    True story - my father-in-law used to give me shit about playing golf. Until he moved to Florida after retirement and took it up. Absolutely loved it until his final days.

    If somebody who is 96 years old can play the sport for the first time then it's probably not a sport.

    Where is MO, he would love this take.

    A 96 year old could go out and shoot basketballs too.

    Like, can a 96 year old go to his local course and "play golf", sure. Have him try Augusta with no access to a golf cart, he doesn't make it 3 holes.

    Yes, because driving a ball 300 yards takes no strength or skill at all.
