This following blog will be completely unbiased. By worst, I mean the most jackasses and unreasonable fans.
5.) Boston Sports Fans – People who are Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox fans all in one are completely intolerable. They’ve never struggled for long enough even to know what struggling is like. They’ve basically been in every championship for my entire life. If Boston sports ever start to struggle you might as well assume that Boston is going to burn to the ground because no Boston fan will have ever experienced losing long term. I respect Boston Fans for how much pride they have, but god damn this is an annoying group of humans.
4.) New York Yankee Fans – Not much writing that needs to be said to prove they belong on this list. The picture below of these white trash gentlemen tells us all we need to know about this fanbase.
3.) SEC Football Fans – NOW THESE FUCKING LUNATICS. SEC fans are a special breed of humans. They’re the only fanbase in the world that will defend a rival just because they’re playing someone from a different conference. INSANE. The craziest part is minus Alabama and Georgia, the rest of the SEC loses to any good team they ever play. The fact that anyone cares enough about a CONFERENCE enough to defend it at all costs is just mind-boggling.
2.) Ohio State Fans – THE Ohio State fans. THE pro-women beaters. THE fans who thought Ohio State was going to make the playoffs after losing to Purdue by 29. THE fans who think Ryan Day is going to be as good of a recruiter as a coach who has won 3 National Titles. THE fans who thought JT Barett was a good quarterback. THE fans who call Ohio State DBU but they can’t defend a pass to save their life. Okay, I’m done.
1.) BRONsexuals – This group is unique. I have zero respect for this fanbase, let’s make that clear. ZERO. The worst part is that number 2 on this list directly ties into number 1 because LeBron said that he would have gone to Ohio State??? We don’t really believe that he wasn’t going to go to Duke, right? He said he wants his son to go to Duke, but he was going to go to Ohio State. Get real. But that’s what is so special about this group; they act completely stupid when it comes to arguing anything about LeBron. NBA fans like myself can’t even enjoy LeBron’s play because all his fans shove it down your throat. He’s a good player but his fans fucking suck. The moment I knew that the BRONsexuals became a problem is when people were defending his “crab dribble,” a blatant travel. If you are going to defend fake basketball moves for a guy, then you will do anything for him. Congrats to the BRONsexuals for getting first for once and they won’t even have to explain why they’re best because I ranked them number 1.
All angry readers, please remember that this was made with an unbiased opinion.
Someone with a working brain has to make this list because ESPN completely fucked it up. They weren’t even close. They literally didn’t even have the most dominant athlete of the last 20 years on their list. HOW? It is clear who number 1 on this list is if you’re going by the most dominant athlete. This doesn’t take some bullshit equation to generate the most dominant athletes of the last 20 years. ESPN shouldn’t throw the dominance word around if that isn’t what their list actually was.
1.) Michael Phelps (ESPN list – Not listed)
An American hero. 28 medals overall, 23 GOLD MEDALS. ESPN doesn’t have the balls to even add one of the greatest American athletes ever to their list because he smoked weed. The only explanation for him not even making the list is that the writer was so stoned when making the list that he just forgot. That is the only reasonable explanation.
2.) Tom Brady (ESPN list- 20)
The man, the myth, the legend. I don’t even like Tom Brady, but the fact that he was 20 on ESPN’s list is just wild. He’s the greatest ever quarterback to play the game and he wasn’t even their first quarterback on their list. Huh? 5 super bowl rings, 4 super bowl MVPs, 13x pro bowl, 3x MVP. I could list 100 more accomplishments but what’s the point. Tom Brady is a clear number 2.
3.) Floyd “Money” Mayweather (ESPN list- 8)
I am not a huge fan of this man. The fact that he was number 8 on their list is once again INSANE. The man is 50-0 and that’s all that needs to be said. If you want dominate I would say the man who has fought 50 times and never lost should probably make the top 5 AT LEAST.
4.) Tiger Woods (ESPN list- 1)
Any time you make the argument for the greatest of all time in something you have been very successful. Tiger Wood’s does just that. Tiger Wood’s was basically the most famous athlete of my childhood and he is a golfer. No other golfer will ever get the fame that Tiger did. He would also be number 1 on my list if it wasn’t for all of the terrible years. To be dominant, you always need to be dominant in a sport like golf. But watch out, TIGER IS BACK.
5.) Jimmie Johnson (ESPN list- 4)
People may highly disagree with this one and say that Nascar isn’t a sport. I understand your argument for that. All I can say here is respect greatness. He is tied for the most all-time in titles with 7. He won 5 consecutive titles, which is unbelievable. This is one of the lone athletes that ESPN and I had in the same ballpark. Just since 2004, he has 77 victories and that is nothing short of impressive.
6.) Usain Bolt (ESPN list- 10)
When it comes to track, in the Olympics, there has only been one man for the past 20 years that you want to see line-up. Usain Bolt is incredible. Fastest human to ever live and he set the record while doing a little showboating before he finished. THAT IS HOW INCREDIBLE HE IS. He never felt losing was an option. People waited for 4 years and then another 4 and then another 4, Usain Bolt didn’t disappoint. An easy option for number 6.
7.) Serena Williams (ESPN list- 12)
I am going, to be honest about this one…. Serena Williams has won enough tournaments to be number 1 on this list. The reason she is at 7 is that I don’t watch tennis and I am not going to start. The only thing I know about Serena Williams is I am certain she hasn’t lost in 20 years. (that’s not true) Whenever people start comparing her to the best guys on the planet saying they think she could beat them, then shes made it. I can’t even name another female tennis player minus her sister Venus and I only know her because of Serena. I knew Serena Williams was easily a top 10 on this list but I just didn’t know where and I felt 7 was a good spot.
8.) Roger Federer (ESPN list- 5)
Once again, I knew this man was deserving of being in the top 10. 5 seems a little high with the athletes we have had in the last 20 years. I know nothing about tennis, I barely understand the rules. One thing I do know is that Roger Federer is the greatest male tennis player of the last 20 years and I don’t even have to follow tennis to know that.
9.) Lionel Messi (ESPN list- 11)
Soccer another sport that I could care less about, if it ain’t the world cup I am not watching. From what I have seen Messi is literally just better than everyone else. Messi makes the players he’s playing against look like they aren’t in the same profession as him. Messi will barely even move and have no problem with keeping defenders feet off of the ball. In 13 years with Barcelona, he has set the goals and assists records. I only know a total of about 4 soccer teams and Barcelona is one of them so it only taking him 13 years to set the goals and assists record seems pretty incredible.
10.) Tim Duncan (ESPN list- Unlisted)
Timmy D. The most overlooked basketball player of all time. He is the greatest power forward of all time and people say that but he never had the respect he deserved when he played. 5x NBA Champion, 2x MVP, 15x All-Star, 10x NBA first team, 8x defensive first team. Do I need to keep going? The man is incredible and people really didn’t take it all in the past 20 years. Tim Duncan is easily the most dominant NBA player of the last 20 years.
11.) Christiano Ronaldo (ESPN list- 14)
After last nights goal that Ronaldo had pushes him up to number 11 on this list. Before that goal, he would have made this list regardless but after that goal, he is pushed up all the way to 11. Plus no homo, but you can’t leave a guy who looks like this off of this list because he would probably make this list just because of his dominance in getting chicks.
12.) Rafael Nadal (ESPN list- Unlisted)
I don’t know tennis but I can read stats. Rafael Nadal doesn’t lose very often. If you don’t lose you are clearly very dominant. He is ranked as the number 2 tennis player in the world. The number 1 ranked tennis player is in the top 10 in this list so 2 isn’t falling far behind.
13.) Kobe Bryant (ESPN list- Unlisted)
The obvious Kobe over LeBron? But Derrik, you can’t say anything bad about LeBron because that just isn’t allowed. ESPN has sucked LeBron’s dick since the day he entered the league. Will LeBron be the 2nd greatest player of all time when it’s all said and done? Yes. Does that mean he is the most dominant player? No. It does not mean that at all. I don’t base dominance on stats or James Harden would be in the top 5. Kobe was a winner. Kobe won 5 titles. 3rd all-time in scoring. Kobe 1x MVP, which he was snubbed on like 4 MVPs throughout his career. Kobe Bryant at 13 is correct. Kobe is a winner, he doesn’t have 5 finals loses coming out of the simple ass eastern conference.
14.) Peyton Manning (ESPN list- 3)
Peyton Manning has a special place in my heart and always will. Peyton Manning being 3 on most dominant athletes of the last 20 years is insane and if you believe that you should face prison time for such a dumb thought. You could easily make an argument for he deserves to be higher than 14. On my list, Peyton Manning is 14. He only won 2 super bowls and so have 10 other quarterbacks, some still in the league and they don’t even think about touching this list. They better not even breathe on it. Peyton Manning, I love you man. You’re still only 14.
15.) LeBron James (ESPN list- 2)
LeBron being at 2 is completely ridiculous for basing this of off dominance. Dominance to me has to include winning. The obvious Kobe over LeBron? But Derrik, you can’t say anything bad about LeBron because that just isn’t allowed. ESPN has sucked LeBron’s dick since the day he entered the league. Will LeBron be the 2nd greatest player of all time when it’s all said and done? Yes. Does that mean he is the most dominant player? No. It does not mean that at all. I don’t base dominance on stats or James Harden would be in the top 5. You’ve already seen that part written because it backs my point on both people. Everything aside, LeBron is an amazing player and he dominants stats from game to game. The man is a bad leader always pointing fingers and killing all team chemistry. He doesn’t win as much as he loses. Hint his 3-5 finals record. With only one of those finals against the impressive Warriors. Other 2 series against the great Warriors LeBron’s teams haven’t competed.
16.) Breanna Stewart (ESPN list- Unlisted)
151-5. 4x NCAA Champion. 4x NCAA MOP. If you never lose in the college tournament then you have been one of the top 20 dominant athletes of the last 20 years. WNBA Rookie of the year. WNBA 2017 all-star. She will probably go down as the greatest women’s basketball player of all time. Nothing but respect for someone who refuses to lose when it counts.
17.) Marta (ESPN list- 9)
Most talented Women’s soccer player of all time. I don’t follow soccer and I am not going to start just to show ESPN I can make a better list. She is 1-2 in everyone’s greatest of all time women’s soccer players. That is all I can base this off of.
18.) Michael Schumacher (ESPN list- 7)
I don’t follow F1 racing just like every American. It’s bigger for foreigners than here. I am writing this from America which is why he is in 18th on my list. What I can’t take away from the man is he has won 7 championships and 5 in the last 20 years. I respect winning and he has 91 wins. The third most ever. Schumacher’s career is impressive nonetheless.
19.) Randy Moss (ESPN list- Unlisted)
Randy Moss is an eye test. There wasn’t anyone like Randy Moss in the last 20 years except Randy Moss. No matter how good you thought you were, you couldn’t guard Randy Moss. Randy Moss created defensive nightmares that other receivers could only dream of. The big name receivers in the NFL today don’t create the matchup problems that Randy Moss did every Sunday. All of that being said, he is 4th all-time in receiving and his career started 20 years ago making him the perfect person for this. Terrell Owens makes a good case to be above Randy Moss but because this falls in the last 20 years Randy Moss has to be the guy.
20.) Annika Sorenstam (ESPN list- 6)
Everything leaves me to believe that she deserves to be on this list. I am going to be the first to tell you, I have never watched a second of the LPGA. From all of my research, she is an incredible athlete. Even of all of the other sports on this list I have never really watched, I at least knew their names. I didn’t know who this was until I researched. If you’re anywhere in the top 10, I should know your name. I have watched sports since I understood sports. People may believe that she deserves to be higher but I just can’t.
This list took a lot longer than expected, but I feel as this list is a lot closer to the Top 20 dominant athletes of the last 20 years than ESPN’s was. I added 6 athletes without even question and they all are in deserving to be on the list. ESPN doesn’t understand dominance in sports. My list has the flow of popularity and winning and then stats. I have no idea what the equation they set was going to solve but whatever it did was a disaster. I don’t get paid to do this and I put more thought into this list than ESPN could have even dreamed.
First things first fuck Chris Haynes. This dude literally made up a title to make people think Lebron was going to Golden State. You literally read the title of the article and then you click on the article and it has zero information that Lebron is going to Golden State. Why the fuck would anyone believe this? I don’t even think Lebron’s bullshit camp (is that racist Bron) made this up. I think 100% ESPN made this shit up to get the views up. They told some random writer to make a title sounding like Lebron was going to Golden State and then to just write the article with no information in it. Chris Haynes clearly doesn’t have a hair on his nuts and is all about the fake views. For Lebron to go to Golden State they would most likely have to get rid of Klay and Draymond. If you think the Warriors are going to ditch two guys that helped so heavily in building this franchise for an enemy they play in the finals every year, you’re nuts. Why are other sports sources covering this like this is even a possibility? This is why people call ESPN Lebron dick suckers because all of their shows today were based on a false narrative that they made up just so that they could talk about Lebron. There hasn’t been a reason to talk about Lebron in 2 months so they made up the biggest shit of all time. Lebron is only staying in Cleveland in one scenario. He gets ownership. Lebron is only going to Golden State in one scenario. The whole team dies in a plane crash so its a fresh start. I don’t think anyone on the Warriors wants to play with Lebron. All of the Veteran players that play on Golden States bench didn’t go and play with Lebron knowing they were going to make the finals. ESPN wants to paint this picture perfect world where everyone loves Lebron. People hate greatness. Bottom line. Golden State players aren’t fucking buddy buddy with Bron. He drafts Kevin Durant for the all-star game and they just assume he’s going to Golden State. Get your shit straight ESPN. This is the worst fake news in sports history. Fuck the dude who made this story. And fuck anyone who actually believes in this story.
Just because LeBron is finally on a team where they literally won’t be able to compete for a title. DOESN”T mean someone else in the league has to throw them a fucking bone so that they can try and make something work. Why would anyone want any of the other players on this bum ass Cavs team? (minus LeBron, IT and K-Love) Also, I understand DWade is a HOFer but no one wants DWade to be the headline of a trade anymore. So why would someone like the Kings, for instance, send the Cavaliers George Hill, who will help a ton for defense, for players like Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert? George Hill does more for the Kings than Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye will ever do for a team. THEY’RE BOTH BUM ASS PLAYERS. The Kings are trying to make sure they are shitting forever if they make trades like this. The big thing is why the fuck does the rest of the league care about the Cavaliers problems. The Cavaliers are going to struggle in the playoffs because LeBron is the only player on their team that can take over in a playoff series. Also, no one on the team can play defense. Jae Crowder is the most overrated defender of all time so stop with that argument now. So why are people trying to make these trades that just throw the LeBron Cavaliers a bone to help them when it matters. LET THEM FUCKING STRUGGLE. Make the NBA fun again. Why do we want the same finals every year? Can we have an interesting NBA again? If the Cavaliers roster stays as is, they won’t make the finals. Also, certain teams in the bottom of the East depending on who, can beat the Cavaliers in a 7 game series (Pacers, 76ers) because the Cavs literally can’t guard anyone and their roster doesn’t make sense anymore. LeBron is truly losing his mind and he is starting to strongly dislike his own team. If LeBron doesn’t still get along with his team in the playoffs he will sell out. As soon as LeBron is out it’s over. Do you remember when LeBron didn’t play in the 4th quarter for 3 straight years? That will come back if LeBron is not happy with the team he is on. Please, I am begging you other NBA teams, DO NOT THROW LEBRON A BONE. If it doesn’t make your team better now and in the future, don’t make the damn trade. (that last part was for the Kings)
Free agency 2018 could potentially mark the beginning of a new era in Los Angeles. With expiring contracts and the availability of big-name players this summer, the Lakers have the opportunity to become a playoff team. While there are plenty of options, Paul George seems to be the fan favorite in LA to come home and play alongside the young core of the Lakers. But should the Lakers want Paul George?
First of all, let’s talk about who can’t be signed to new contracts for the Lakers for this summer to be a success. Brook Lopez, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Corey Brewer. These 3 combine for nearly $50 million in the last year of their current contracts. None of these guys deserve the money they are making now and are not essential for the Lakers that are clearly building for the future. Julius Randle, who has been in trade rumors for what seems like forever, is on the last year of his contract, making about $4 million. However, Randle is only 23, and he will have a solid career as a power forward in the NBA. The Lakers need to seriously consider trying to keep him around.
Now, this is where the other options come in to play for the Lakers. There are two players that I see fitting in best with Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, and Julius Randle. Those players are none other than Demarcus Cousins and Avery Bradley. But why pursue Avery Bradley and not Paul George? The answer to this is simple. The Lakers are arguably always the center of attention in the NBA media. I can already imagine all of the stories and articles regarding the tension between Paul George and Demarcus Cousins. I just don’t see these two working well together. If George plays for his hometown Lakers, he will want to be the leader, and to be honest, I wouldn’t blame him. I don’t see Cousins taking the backseat to Paul George.
Avery Bradley and Demarcus Cousins just make sense to me. Lonzo and Cousins seem like the perfect match. Lonzo will create on offense and Cousins will feed off of it like we’ve never seen from him before. Bradley, a great defender and good scorer, will also fit in naturally. If they can keep Randle, I like the potential that the Lakers would have, while also being a strong team in the bottom half of the playoff picture in the West. But no matter what happens, the Lakers cannot mess up this summer. The money they have available can be spent poorly in free agency. We see it all the time, teams overpaying players is the trend. The Lakers need to be aggressive with the better free agents and make something happen. There is only one name that could POTENTIALLY (I’m not sure I see this) complicate things for the Lakers: LeBron James. If he shows any interest in the Lakers, they don’t have any other reasonable option other than making it happen.
With the new vote count among Eastern Conference guards, it has become clear that fan voting has turned into a popularity contest. I could go on and talk about why Ben Simmons isn’t a top 3 guard in the East, but I’m going to dismiss that for now. Dwyane Wade and Isaiah Thomas are actually in the top 10. Yes, I already checked if you were wondering, this is indeed the voting for this year. Dwyane Wade, who doesn’t start, and Isaiah Thomas, who has played 3 games, are ahead of Bradley Beal. I honestly don’t give a shit about Bradley Beal, but he sure as hell deserves to be in the all-star game above those two, as he averages almost 24 ppg. Unfortunately, most of the fan voting occurs on social media, which allows people to simply retweet to vote for undeserving players. Obviously, there are more Cavs fans due to LeBron James and their recent dominance of the Eastern Conference than there are fans of Bradley Beal.
The fans have officially made a joke out of what it means to be an all-star in the NBA. Luckily, fan vote does not solely determine who makes the all-star game. There is plenty wrong with the current vote count, and if this is any reflection of who ends up making it, things are going to get bad for the NBA. It’s time for the NBA to realize fans can’t even handle the ability to vote for players that deserve all-star status.
And also, if you think Ben Simmons is a top 3 guard in the East, please seek help.
