“The Last Dance” docu-series has fueled the argument: Who’s Greatest, Michael or LeBron?

The numbers solve nothing. We can argue championships, scoring, rebounds, assists and, still, nothing is definitive.

Sebastian LoebCarlos Sainz SrWell, there’s a similar argument going on in the World Rally Championship. But in this case the Michael and LeBron is Sebastian Loeb and Carlos Sainz.

WRC.com held a month-long poll that absorbed more than 300,000 votes to reach the conclusion that Sainz and his two titles is worth more than Loeb’s nine straight.

Sainz has been named the WRC’s GOAT, the greatest of all time.

The tournament style knockout rounds included all 18 WRC champions. When it started Sainz was ranked sixth in the seedings. Loeb was top seeded. But Sainz, The Matador pulled off the upset.

Michael-LeBron or Sainz-Loeb. There’s another argument to while away your quarantine hours.

Peace.
