"TOP 5 MOST OVERRATED ATHLETES OF ALL TIME"
Overview: Too many athletes are sold to us as being "one of the greatest of all-time," when their accomplishments simply don't measure up to the hype.
Criteria: Any professional athlete, whether on a sports team or a professional participant in a physical activity that isn't a sport, is to be considered but their hype has to match the disspointment. Also, we're not talking about players that simply didn't live up to their potential and wound up flunking out of the sport (like Ryan Leaf and Christian Laettner), we're talking about players who had or have careers which we're told are better than they really are.
Rob's Notes: All of the players on my list are considered by their most rabid fans as the greatest of all time in their respective positions or sports when the truth is that they either cheated or just aren't as good as people want them to be. Remember, winning is the only thing that matters (unless you cheated your way there).
Arnie's Notes: Look here, Wayne Greztky is not the great one! Not one freakin' bit. He was a pussy that didn't fight and let his team do all the work while he got all the glory. Gordy Howe was soooooooooo much better it's not even funny. As far as the rest of the list goes, Seabiscut was a horse, and it was Micheal Jordan that made Scottie Pippen worth anything.
