What about Kobe?? Or even Shaq? Maybe even Queen James? Griffey?
I saw this today:
Bo knows what? Bo Jackson’s surprising post-NFL/MLB career - Shutdown Corner - NFL
Got me to thinking back at that time. I would say at the time in 1989/90 there was no one bigger in sports.
Besides Tiger Woods and MIchael Jordan, I can't think of another athlete for at least a period of time held the title as most popular in the past 22 years.
Kobe and Lebron I don;t think are bigger then Michael now. Griffey was big in baseball but I don't think he trandscended sports
Shaq? Hmmm...Maybe, very interesting especially with Shaq vs.
Bo Jackson is just a such a unique phenenom were he was a truly gifted player at both sports. Without the knee injury I think you would have had a much larger impact. Deion was only ever a part time baseball player, and was never nearly the baseball player Jackson was.
For a short period of time, I agree that he overtook Jordan for a short period of time(in Jordan's own era.) Rodman also did, and so did Tyson. But we're talking about less than a year total combined.
i like Bo and his sneaker, but MJ>Bo on the sneaker department.
