Re: "G.O.A.T" from 90s?
If Griffey had stayed healthy, he'd be the GOAT when it comes to baseball. He'd be right up there with Mays, Ruth, Aaron, etc. He was a true five-tool player.
Since I refuse to acknowledge cheaters, a couple of baseball greats that don't get mentioned are two of the greatest pitchers ever, Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux. Both were complete contrasts, Johnson would overpower at the plate, while Maddux nibbled and bit at the strike zone piece by piece.
NFL running backs, Emmitt Smith can be in the discussion for GOAT as far as running back, he is the all-time leading rusher in NFL history. One could also say Deion Sanders was the GOAT at defensive back. He might have been a pussy when it came to tackling, but he was a big-time shutdown corner. No one threw his direction.
Two teams that could be GOAT...1995-96 Bulls that went 72-10 and won the NBA championship, and the '98 Yankees who went 114-48 in the regular season and won 125 games total including the first of three straight World Series titles.
