20 years ago neither Ronnie nor Higgins would have been in the conversation for GOAT anyway
But even now I think Higgins cant really be in the conversation for GOAT. Most complete player of all time? Probably. But greatest? Nope.
Ronnie and John are from the same generation and they played in the very same era against the very same opposition and Ronnie has just won more. So Ronnie is definitely ahead of him. And Hendry for sure is above Higgins as well.
For me Higgins is the 3rd greatest but some people might argue its Davis.
