I am re-reading Bill Simmons Book of Basketball and just got to Bernard King and got to thinking about my favorite players ever. And what I realized is that my favorite players ever are all from my childhood. So I got to thinking this is probably true for everyone. So, who are some of the favorites of the board and do they conform to my hypothesis?
Baseball - - Joe Morgan (with Eric Davis a close second)
Basketball - - Bernard King
Football - - Lawrence Taylor
College hoops - - Michael Jordan
College Football - - three way tie between Bo Jackson, Hershel Walker and Billy Sims
