On Sunday, Tom Brady once again cemented himself with the greatest athletes in history after winning his seventh Super Bowl.
Following the Bucs win on Super Bowl Sunday, several people on the Internet began crowning Brady the GOAT athlete over Michael Jordan, who won six titles during his illustrious NBA career.
so Jordan has 6 rings, and Brady has 7 rings. is it now safe to say that Brady is the GOAT of all GOATS?

No one is ever catching Brady. Not Mahomes. Not anyone. It’s not happening.
More rings than Jordan. In the goddamn NFL.
Tom Brady is the greatest team sport athlete of all time.

Fans of female tennis superstar Serena Williams, who has won 23 grand slams and four Olympic gold medals throughout her career, took offense to everyone calling Brady the GOAT athlete and fired back.
First of all, the title "greatest athlete of all time" is ridiculous, highly subjective, and is impossible to measure.
Secondly, Serena Williams is the greatest athlete of all time.

Don't get it mixed up. Serena Williams has 23 grand slams, four Olympic gold medals, and cleared one of those titles while pregnant at the Australian Open.
She is the GOAT of GOATS.

The rush to call Brady the greatest athlete of all time while Serena sits right there with 23 grand slam titles is the same racism that overlooks Black women in the office when promotion time arrives.

While the debate is fun comparing both athletes is like comparing apples to oranges and hopefully, no one is taking it seriously.
