The Greatest of the Greats

Postby Nomar4prez » Sun Feb 29, 2004 12:15 pm

I thought I would start a new topic about the greatest players in all of professional sports. Which ones could of played anytime, or anywhere? And I don't mean after they work-out and get these "supplements", but straight out of their era.

My short list:

Wilt Chamberlain
Ted Williams(who knows, he could be cloned and playing again in 20 years!)
The Quarterback for the Baltimore Colts...having a brain fart....revolutionized the forward pass....you know who I'm talking about!

I'm sure it would pain you to add Babe Ruth to the list - but he revolutionized the power game in baseball. And the only supplements he was on was raw meat and beer.

I'd say these 3 are the most dominate ever in their sport.

As far as football goes Jerry Rice was the most Dominate WR ever.

Nice to see Rugby get a mention but what Jonah Lomu has done in Rugby is not much more than what Johan Santana has done in baseball. Lomu wouldn't even make a Top 20 list in New Zealand Rugby, let alone World Rugby.
