    Typical European (inferiority complex) mentality: can't follow a simple logical argument because of his need to underestimate the American intellect in order to assuage his own wounded ego.

    This wasn't my argument at all. Mine was an argument of global recognition rates. You might try following the crumbs I laid out for you using that classic low-brow thing called "evidence". Hell, I even cited a German polling body.


    High horses, alright.
    Meanwhile, Jordan inspired a global revolution that saw basketball become the most popular sport in China. #1. Boxing never sniffed that.

    Jordan >>>>>>>>>> Ali

    I don't get it. It doesn't even matter if they are. That's still a "sports icon".

    David Beckham is the most famous soccer star in history as far as I've been able to discern. Didn't even make the poll.

    Yeah, clearly I'm the one who somehow "needs" to show superiority...

    The simple fact that Jordan is famous in countries that don't even barely play basketball should say something.

    While being blackballed from the league has prevented him from having the athletic accolades some of the others on the list do, as an overall worldwide FIGURE Kaepernick is probably 2nd only to Ali
