  1. Unless Nadal picks up the pace over the next several years, I fully believe that Federer has to be considered the better all time player. It will be hard for me to think of Djokovic as a potential #1 of all time but, as you say, the book's still open. The players just keep getting better and better and it becomes unfair to compare one generation against another. As someone old enough to have seen Laver et al play (in person), then to continue thru the Connors, Borg, McEnroe, Sampras, Agassi eras, I am continuously amazed at how each "new" great player is so much better than the ones before them. And I expect this to continue. I have some perspective on this issue. Having converted from tennis to squash in college & graduating in '74, I played NYC league squash in '81-'83 while I was ranked in the top 100 (amateurs) nationally. I played on a co-ed team and played #1 for a season, with the #2 player being the #2 women's pro. in the country. I could beat her in a match, barely, but I could (the #1 woman's player at the time could roll over me like I was hit by a train, but that's another story). At any rate, a # of years later, by the time Venus was coming up in the tennis ranks and I was playing tennis again (at a much lower pedestrian level), I remember standing court side and having a revelation that, in my prime, I wouldn't stand a chance against the then current top 50 women squash players and would be lucky to win a game (okay, 2 points) against a top woman's tennis player. Not even a tough analysis. They were just that much better. I cannot fathom how good these current players are. Yes, as you (Don) say, the training is better, the equipment much better and everything else is a better environment to produce better athletes. But, the bottom line remains -- these are the best ever. And soon there'll be better. By the way, I still have my Tad Davis Imperial wood racquet & the "new" racquet I replaced it with"¦ the Wilson T-2000. Both are strung and usable. Neither can be used effectively & I'll stick with my current Head Radical. Too bad I didn't keep a container of white balls.
  2. What five-player team would win you the most games, assuming no substitutions (and no fatigue?) 1 Magic Johnson 2 Michael Jordan 3 Larry Bird 4 and 5 are where it gets tough ... I'm so tempted to go with Duncan at 4, but his assists and scoring were low. And how do you *not* pick Wilt Chamberlain at 5, especially because your team is going to need some rebounds? 4 LeBron James 5 Bill Russell The problem with this is that you only have two *great* shooters (Jordan and Bird). But who in the hell could possibly beat them? You could put Abdul-Jabbar at 3, Russell at 4, and Chamberlain at 5, and probably never lose a game. Damn, what about Johnson, Jordan, Abdul-Jabbar, Russell, and Chamberlain? I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who wouldn't pick Johnson and Jordan in your back court. the J-Team: Jordan, Johnson, Julius, Jason, Jerry, John, James, Jabbar. How do you beat *that*? BTW, my GOAT individual might be a coin flip between Jordan and Chamberlain. I haven't even mentioned Oscar Robertson or Elgin Baylor. And George Mikan was almost as dominant in his era as Wilt Chamberlain was in his. Man oh man, this is an impossible task.
  3. While this is certainly not definitive, anything said or written by John Elway about quarterbacks must be taken seriously. Here is a bleacherreport.com exclusive: John Elway's Top 5 Quarterbacks Of All-Time.
