This whole thread, you've been displaying the straw-man argumentative fallacy.
You've been assigning a position to the other side and then disproving THAT. Not what we've actually said.
No one disagrees that Jackson could run faster, jump higher, throw farther, etc. Once again, though, it's about SKILL in SPORTS. Not raw physical abilities.
To say the greatest tennis player of all time is NOT EVEN CLOSE to a guy who had a .240 batting average and led the league in strikeouts is insane.
