I think its time for a GOAT discussion

    Er, how about Babe Ruth as the absolute greatest natural talent of all time?

    Could any of the so-called athletes named above accomplish their splendid deeds on a diet of booze and hot dogs and two hours of sleep nightly?

    I think not!

    I would like to point out that when Magic played, his teammates played better.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    It's almost impossible to believe, but Magic is under rated.
