Anyone other than Cassius Clay is a joke

Sorry but for all he's accomplished it came before I was born. So for my lifetime:

-Mike Jordan -Tiger Woods

I would have to think Yao Ming would have to be big just because all of the Chinese fans. And when you start putting in names from years back you lose a lot of possible people just because the worlds population has grown by almost 2 billion (increase of over 40%) in the last 20 years. The worlds population has almost doubled since Ali's & Pele's days.

Alltime: Jordan

Right Now: Tiger

Jordan changed sports and advertising. He took being a spokesman to an entirely different level. He is the reason Tiger makes the kind of money he does off the course.

Being in LA I can see why you might think Kobe, but he is not even close. LeBron is a bigger star.

Being in the US I can see why you might think LeBron, but he is not even close!

And it goes on...

Ali

No one in these post is probably old enough to remember, not only was he arguably the greatest fighter ever, he took a political stance in the most turbulent period of social change not only in the US but across the world.

Greatest sports star ever? That's tough to say considering each individual sport varies from one to the next. I don't think a comparison could be made between Wayne Gretzky and Tiger Woods. Instead I think we should all ask ourselves, who is the greatest in their perspective sports? My picks are as follows:

Baseball: Ted Williams
Football: Jim Brown
Basketball: Michael Jordan
Hockey: Wayne Gretzky
Golf: Tiger Woods

I simply said LeBron was a bigger star than Kobe. He is not in a class with Tiger, Jordan or even Babe Ruth or Ali.

Football: Jim Brown but also like Walter Payton but i'm with you on the rest
