Is this for real?
For what? Best at injuring himself running 90 feet? I hope you don't think he's in the discussion for best player in any sport... I don't even think he's in the top 3 Yankees.
When you're great movies and branding absolutely does mean as lot. That adds to that of Jordan and Ali.
I bet MJ could star in a hockey movie and it would be a cant miss box office hit. Because he is JORDAN! EVeryone wants to see it because he's a legend.
Branding should be a valid argument. It's not because of Jordan "witty" popularity like Charles Barkley. He has this spaceJam, Hanes commercials, McDonald's, etc because of his dominance on the court.

Try and pay attention to my argument first. Greatness is tied to many different things.
If I'm honest idc much for Jordan's TV/Film stuff outside of Space Jam. And even at that I was a kid. If I watched Space Jam today I probably wouldn't find it as entertaining. He's a duster as far as acting capabilities go. Shaq is in a lot more thespian stuff than MJ... You ready to say he's better overall than Jordan?
Your not getting it.
It's not about his acting ability. It's the opportunities, fame and success of his endeavors that was solely correlated to his hoops abilities compared to that of Gretsky who has none of that to the level of Jordan to show for it.
Ok to your point though is Shaq better than MJ?
And the fact that you haven't spelled his name right once is leading me to believe you've never been to, watched a, or played a hockey game. The more you talk the more basketball biased you sound. I've played both. It's much easier to dominate in basketball... and Jordan didn't do it. Gretzky did.
Nobody cares about how much money each one has or who is more famous. You keep giving me stuff that's not quantifiable in terms of sports. Give me one stat that makes MJ even far and away the best player in his own sport... I could say Wilt and Oscar could be considered at #1. Kareem and by the end of his career Lebron as well.
Sidney Crosby is the closest thing we've seen to Gretzky since he retired and he couldn't hold his jock.

Please inform me what shoes and/or some children's movie has to do with who was the superior athlete.
anyone with a brain.
For humans Gretzky and Jordon had glorious careers but for my money I will take Secretariat the racing legend that won the Triple Crown. Winner of the Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths...Sure Secretarial was horse but he was also a great athlete..Secretariat was ulra-succesfull after his career too..Secretariat sired several hundred offspring..
