    Mount Rushmores

    A debate thatís happening on Twitter:

    @GlobeBobRyan
    No city has a better sports Mt Rushmore than BOSTON. And here it is: Russ, Ted, Bobby and Tom. You cannot imagine how painful it is for me to leave out Larry. But I must.

    Cincinnati could play in this game, if it doesnít have to be one from each of the four sports.

    Could you do Cincinnati as a birthplace? Or go with college teams?

    Baseball: Nuxhall
    Football: Anderson
    Basketball: Robertson
    Hockey: no clue

    Re: Mount Rushmores

    Does it count if they're not "from" there?

    I mean, NYC has a say, if it's not. (Babe, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Pele, Tyson, Joe Louis.)

    So does LA (Magic, Kareem, Bo, Koufax).

    And Chicago. (MJ, Butkus, Chelios, Dorothy Hamill, CM Punk)

    And Houston (Earl Campbell, Carl Lewis, Hakeem, Nolan Ryan)

    If it's where people are born, other places are interesting.

    Louisville: Johnny Unitas, Ali, Dr. Dunkenstein (or Paul Hornung), Mary T. That's a solid alternative list, IMO.

    NYC is good: Iron Horse, Kareem, Jordan, Iron Mike (or Gronk)

    Baltimore has a say in this one too: Cal, Babe, Michael Phelps, Carmelo

    Philadelphia: Kobe, Wilt, Bill Tilden, Joe Frazier

    I think the original theme was not about being born there, but that would be more impressive. If it were all one sport, Donora, Pa., would have a claim: The Griffeys, Musial, and some other guy.

    Hockeyís going to be the tough one for most places.

    My take was that it consists of 1 person per major sport.
    What Jordan are you referring to for NYC?
