In reference to their work ethics, I don't think anyone that does not know them personally can evaluate how good their work ethics are. Their coaches, parents, and friends tell us that they all have it, but they would be extremely biased. I really do think that most, if not all
, professional athletes have great work ethics.
To be great, you have to have a gift. You can work super hard, but some people have a greater potential than others. Obviously working hard helps to reach that potential, but are these guys so gifted that they can be the greatest ever? I would think (statistically speaking) that they don't.
Eventually, someone will topple Tiger. It's going to happen. Whether or not that happens during his prime will be the question. If he comes back and is as good as he was, I think it would be really tough and probably impossible. IMO, he's the greatest golfer to ever play and it's tough to top that when he's in his prime. (Look at MJ, Ali, Pele, etc. They were all dominant and possibly the best ever in their respective sports. How can anyone top them [in ranking] when they are in their primes?)
