    Read where an NBA player said recently that his favorite athlete of all time is Ken Griffey Jr.

    Obviously, the guy is pretty young if he grew up fascinated by Junior's exploits.

    But it got me to thinking: Who's my favorite athlete of all time?

    No explanations needed here. Just the athlete's name. Hoping it's not one long series of Ali, Jordan, Woods. If you're in Canada, go with your "favourite." I'll go first:

    Wilt Chamberlain

    And shouldn't this thread be on the Anything Goes board?

    Ali, nobody else close. Mike Schmidt was my favorite baseball player. Jim Brown my favorite football player and Wilt my favorite basketball player. But it's got to be Ali.
