Having MJ's name on this list just goes to show how ridiculous and irrelevant it really is. There are a few athletes who revolutionized their sport, and whose names are instantly thought of when their sport is mentioned. Babe Ruth in baseball, Gretzky in hockey, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicholson in golf, and Michael Jordan in basketball. Quit living in denial and give credit where it's due.....

Dirk Nowitzki Report Abuse
First he was good, then bad, then good enough down the stretch, but for a guy who stands 7-foot, Dirk doesn't bring much to the table when his shot isn't falling. He's an below-average defender and a average rebounder -- hardly ideal for a guy being treated like a franchise player.

Ya know, as someone who started out as a Jordan fan I gotta say that if they called the game for him like they did for other superstars, he'd still be considered one of the greatest ever but he doesn't get as many championships or scoring titles as he did. Plus he benefited greatly by playing in a league past it's golden era of great teams. He was simply on just a very good team in a decade of mediocre teams.

Held all three major titles for 4 years while being the youngest champion ever at 20 years old. And holding the fastest knockout at 8 sec. 50-6 with 44 knockouts. Come on that is like one of the best records ever.

Apparently another disgruntled Dodger, Yankee, or Pirate fan that Rose tore apart during his career just had to add him to this list. What Rose did during his playing career was remarkable. He's the greatest singles hitter in history, period. He played baseball the way it was meant to be played, and he made every team he played for better. The man was a baseball god, pure and simple. Live with it.....
