He was the best as far as I'm concerned. And yes that is tinged with nostalgia, but so is anybody's judgement as to who the GOAT might be. You can't help but be effected by memories of when the pulse quickened and something transcendent seemed to be taking place like never before or since. Any attempt to bring objectivity into it just kills the whole idea of how it's all about falling in love with the game and the human potential it represents.
Thanks for the cool post Mxy.
