No debate: LeBron is the GOAT at the chase-down block

LeBron James is the greatest chase-down shot blocker of all time.

Who is the greatest of all time: LeBron James or Michael Jordan? It seems to be a debate that will live forever.

One debate that we can put to bed right now, however, is that LeBron is the greatest chase-down swat artist of all time.

James had yet another one in Cleveland's blowout win over the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals Friday night. This time, Celtics shooting guard Avery Bradley, was the victim.

LeBron has developed quite the knack for coming out of nowhere and catching his opponent off-guard with exciting, game-changing blocks.

Need some proof? This compilation video of his chase-down blocks from the 2015-16 NBA season proves he does it on a regular basis.

Sure, Friday night's chase-down block of Bradley was pretty. Almost all of the blocks from the compilation video were impressive.

But he has done it in the biggest games at the most clutch times. None bigger than his incredible chase-down block of Warriors guard Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of last year's NBA Finals. The block may have saved the series for the Cavs.

Alas, Michael may have LeBron covered when it comes to their championship-ring count, but Jordan has nothing on James when it comes to the art of the chase-down block.
