Great Q-backs but those number are already taken by a couple of Yankees.

33- Has to be Larry "Legend" Bird. Although, I can't really argue against the other choices, Bird was no super-athlete, but still managed to be one of the best players in the history of the game.

He was the best all around player to ever play, no ifs and or buts.

please change your avatar to "I don't know crap about the Basketball"

THANKS ;-D :-D


Nah. Magic is the best player ever and would still be the leader in assists and a lot higher in the scoring ranks if he didn't get sick. He was the best basketball player ever. It's like Elway and Marino. Marino has all the stats, but Elway was clearly the better QB.

I can't believe you don't think MJ isn't the greatest basketball player to sport the 23 .... that's just insane.

12- T. Brady, or atleast it will be when he retires with 4-5 or even 6 championship rings.

I saw two names attached to 8 - Ripkin and Yogi Berra. I'd argue that Carl Yastrzemski gets the number over Berra, but that Ripkin gives him a good battle. Ripkin's consec. games feat is on an equal footing with Yaz being the LAST PERSON TO HIT FOR THE TRIPLE CROWN (1967).

Seriously, no one's really even come too close to matching that in almost 40 years now. Gotta tip your hat to Yaz.


He's my 8.

The only difference between the comparisons is that Jordan has all the stats and was also clearly the better player. ;-D
