    I don't know if this has been done before but I have seen so many debates on here about who is the greatest player ever or somebody's favorite player or whether old time stars were better than today's stars. Therefore, I am interested to see other people's thoughts on this for the different sports that they watch..

    What is it they say; "Great minds think alike" or "Fools never differ?"

    Let's go with "Great minds" ;)

    :lol: Yes.

    Not to mention I've defended Steph in the NBA thread against whatever that was thrown at him. Man's really grown on me, absolute class act.

    The preconceived conclusions regarding the fight between James Buster Douglas and Mike Tyson was Douglas was going to be victim no.31. (to be knocked out). As it turned out, Tyson knocked Douglas, and he was on the floor. Douglas was down but not out. It was unprecedented for someone to get up after being knocked by Mike Tyson. The bell arrived. People thought Douglas was a dead man walking. That in the next round, Tyson was going to obliterate him. Tyson himself was ready to finish him, fatality! The mindset from Douglas was, I can, I will, I must! He started fighting back. He showed perseverance in the wake of adversity and knocked Mike Tyson out. The world was shocked, and when asked how he did the impossible. He essentially explained his why was enough to make him cry. His mother told to those that would listen, that Douglas would win the fight against Mike Tyson. Just two days prior to the fight, his mother died. He used his adversity to overcome the insurmountable.

    People said he wasn't going to make it. He was doubted. He was one of the slowest quarterbacks in the Combine, they said he lacked the requisite mobility to avoid the rush. He lacked the appearance of an American footballer. He was awkward looking. Tom Brady took up the sport as a freshman and was a mere backup. It was only as a sophomore where the person above him in the pecking order gave up the sport, did he get his opportunity. Even when he helped his team Michigan to winning the Orange Bowl, it earned him a reputation as being a system quarterback that would be exposed in any other system. When Tom Brady won a Super Bowl. They said he would never reach another Super Bowl. He's now the only player to win 5 Super Bowls with a single team, that being the Patriots. Tom Brady once said:"If you don't believe in yourself, why is anyone else going to believe in you?"
    "

    Aged 11, Rashford wrote his why on paper. His dream ... his goal ... his ambition. The guy has no plan B. I remember watching the U18s and Demetri Mitchell was the MVP. When he got injured, somebody needed to take that mantle, that responsibility, that onus in attack. Rashford stood up to the plate. Strikers like Will Keane and James Wilson were more prolific than Rashford, some if not most would say comfortably more talented. Rashford was put in a sink or swim situation when Rooney was injured, Will Keane pulled up against Shrewsbury, Martial pulled his hamstring in the warm up, meaning Rashford didn't know until the very last minute that he was going to be in the starting berth. He rose to the occasion. Put his name on the map. The guy is an opportunist. He was called upon again, this time against Arsenal. He did the business. Rashford has had three man of the match performances against Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man City. When Zlatan got injured last season, Rashford stepped up to the plate with game changing performances in the Quarter and Semi Final of the Europa League. This season, scored in the biggest game he's started, the Manchester Derby.

    Just kinda going off the fact you liking Buster so much off of one massive super upset.....and legit nothing else. Biggest upset like ever like, but just a bit mad.

    Gatti makes it even more odd, you can reel numerous great bouts he was in outside of the times he was a punching bag against anyone elite.

    I don't really watch too many other sports, but -

    Football - Denis Law, the original ' King ' of Old Trafford
    Tennis - Roger Federer, and almost certainly the greatest tennis player of all time.
    Cycling - Has to be Mark Cavendish
    Golf - Fred Couples, the best swing ever and the perfect Golf ' Gentleman '
    Baseball - No longer with us, sadly, but Gary Carter and his absolute will to win got me hooked on the Mets when they were still just a joke.

    Favourite / Greatest Sportsman of all time - Muhammad Ali, but he was so much more than just a sportsman. He and Nelson Mandela were the two most important, special and above all the most dignified people of my generation.
