    I dnt thinks its true for sports like the NFL or NBA.. The truly greats are great in any era..

    Put Jordan, Bird Johnson, Iverson, Shaq in todays NBA, they crush it..

    Put Rice, Montana, LT, Walter Payton etc and they are stars in todays NFL..

    Truly great players transcend any era..

    I don't think that's true, times change.

    The greatest hockey player that ever lived wouldn't score 92 goals in a season today IMO.

    Rules changed, gear changed, nutrition changed ...etc

    My grandfather was a massive defenceman in the Memorial cup in his time at 6'2 220lbs, that's nothing now.

    *funny story, my grandmother lost her front teeth watching him play hockey lol*

    We have to agree to disagree on that..I think u put a player like Jerry Rice, or Montana in todays NFL, with todays nutrition and training, playing in todays rules..they destroy..

    Imagine Magic Johnson in todays NBA..the ultimate 4 position, 2 way player..shit man, Draymond who?

    I kinda get why he's in there but it just seems too soon. There have got to be more deserving guys out there.

    I always liked Faber. Can't believe Mike Brown had his number like that. Congrats to him
