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


No contest... Only one MJ (even though I wasn't a big jordan fan)... :-/

At 32 Koufax over Magic?

Here's some baseball players for the missing #s:

21. Roberto Clemente
27. Catfish Hunter
29. Rod Carew
39. Roy Campanella
41. Tom Seaver
53. Don Drysdale
72. Carlton Fisk

Ah, Fisk'll always be #27... ;-)

Never said that. Magic is 32.

I'll take Cal Ripken as my #8, over Berra and even over Yaz.

I like Clemente as your #21.

Definitely give the #26 to Wade Boggs and the #27 to Carlton Fisk.

Rod Carew gets my #29.

I'd give #45 to Bob Gibson.

Larry Csonka is a #39 to consider, if not Roy Campanella.

Chuck Bednarik would make for a good #60.

Don Drysdale and Orel Hershiser could be #53 and #55, respectively.

Casey Stengel, one of the most famous managers ever, wore #37.

Hope this helps a little.

Agree with most of those, but Seau over Hershiser at 55 is a must.

88 = Michael Irvin

And I know there's already an 8, but Steve Young deserves a mention...

Hey, didn't Seau play for the Chargers? ;-)

I'll stick with Hershiser.
