I'm currently reading this article, and the first paragraph says,
If you need another reason (besides all the cool accolades, you know?) to cement Michael Jordan as the GOAT, this is for you.
Will you kindly let me know what the bold part is trying to mean or trying to refer to?
I don't get it at all, especially about what the word "accolade" is referring to.
*If necessary, I would like to bring the another passage from the article.
Thank you in advance.
