Is Roger Federer greater than Michael Jordan
Has Fed overtaken MJ, in greatest ever sportstar status? Measurement of success is stuff like marketability to a wider audience/statistics/greatness in there career(stuff that stats don't always pick up)/dominance in there era/longevity e.g. Fed not just run of the mill at 36 he's still kicking ass and in the top 5 best players in the world/ etc.
Michael Jordan has sold a lot more merchandise than Fed and still does today 15 years after he retired. Fed one US open wore a custom made nike Air jordan shoe, as both are sponsored by Nike.
But yeah has Fed overtaken Michael Jordan in best ever sportstar status etc?
If one just says Fed is that unfair to MJ, and just showing recency bias etc?
But yeah, also a list of guy I think are best since 1970- in sport(ps I don't know enough about horse riding/car racing/baseball/or winter sports so hence hardly added any there etc).. But here's a list..
