Nick describes Gatsby as the greatest guy he's ever met because he is the most true. Nick admires Gatsby for his ability to dream and hope in the face of certain failure. Nick feels that Gatsby is the best person he met during his entire year in New York. While others doubt Gatsby, or guess at his underworld leanings, Nick ignores all that and sees Gastby for the person he is.
