Metaphor: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase [GOAT] is applied to an object or action [Bill Russell] to which it is not literally applicable [i.e. you cannot literally say that Bill Russell is the GOAT, because, well, he isn’t]
Or, if that one is not suitable: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another [calling Bill Russell the goat in place of Steph Curry in this hypothetical situation where he wins 2 more rings and FMVPs] to suggest a likeness or analogy between them [i.e. a likeness that each argument is stupid] You said: Rings/accolades > cumulative stats
Like seriously, who cares what stats lebron put up this year (adding to his cumulative stats) when his ass didn't even make the playoffs.
I jokingly said that you must agree that Bill Russell is the goat because Rings/accolades > cumulative stats.
In conclusion, I just wasted 5 minutes of my life typing this.
