    Default GOAT career

    Today Mike and Mike discussed greatest sports career and part of the requirement was you had to be accomplished in three areas at least. They used college, pro, coaching, exec, owner

    They discussed Larry Bird and whether he was it or at a minimum ahead of Jerry West

    So who is the GOAT for a sports career?

    Does Nolan Ryan count? I don't recall if he was a coach, but he was a very good pitcher (walked too many damned people though) and so far it can be suggested that he is a superb executive given the success of the Rangers.

    I was surprised that Bird was in the conversation. When the rallied off Jerry West's accomplishments I didn't see Bird even close to that.

    I actually thought the Bill Russell one was good too. How about Pete Rose?

    Just to add to the list of already good candidates; Jerry Sloan(c/p/C), McHale(c/p/C/E)

    Halas is hard to beat though.

    Could have maybe put Walter Payton on the list if the nfl would have given him the st. Louis team. Wait how was his auto racing team...
