Son includes Messi and Ronaldo as GOAT players

Son Heung-min, the top player for Tottenham Hotspur, shocked the sports world by leaving LeBron James off of his selection of the four best athletes of history, a list which also featured Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo, two of soccer's finest players.

Son's daring selections have sparked discussions and rumours regarding the standards he used to compile this elite group of sporting heroes.

The NFL is ruled by Tom Brady. He can brag about winning seven Super Bowls. The three-time NFL MVP recently announced his retirement at the age of 45, defying the onset of ageing-related deterioration, something James is still years away from.

Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Messi & Ronaldo,” Son Heung-min said.

On the football pitch, the names Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are both considered to be the best. With multiple Ballon d'Or awards between them, both athletes have dominated their sport and are well-known.

Even 20 years after his retirement from the game of basketball, Michael Jordan continues to be the best player in the world. James is still pursuing basketball greatness in the latter stages of his career thanks to his six championships and numerous famous plays.

LeBron James' omission from Son Heung Min's list of the best athletes of all time is a matter of personal preference. He considered Jordan, Brady, Messi, and Ronaldo to be his top four players, with James falling short in his eyes.

Basketball devotees have been discussing who is superior to one another for years because LeBron James and Michael Jordan are both considered icons of greatness.

Michael Jordan's supporters continue to point out that during his six appearances in the NBA Finals in the 1990s, he was rarely defeated. Between 1991 and 1998, Jordan dominated the sport and went two years without a three-peat before taking an 18-month break to play baseball.
