Greatest Boston athlete ever, Bobby Orr.
Sorry, it's hockey I know. So I'll just say this then, love Brady and many other Pats, but none meant to Boston/New England or their sport what Orr did. If you weren't around then, it's difficult to explain, but it was revolutionary. As great as the Pats have been, they haven't had that impact.
And, there should never be a question about "who was the greatest Hockey Player ever"? When I see Bobby Orr skate from the back of his own net and skate up full Ice and score all by himself ....wow. Gave his all to the Bruins and fans. At the age of only 28 just had to call it quits.
Keep up your good work ...Muzz
Sorry dude, I love Orr but to e he' not the best of all time... I'll take numerous guys over him IMO...
Lemeiux, Gretzky, Bossy to name a few....
Just my opinion..
Gretzky is the only viable name you have in there. Lemieux? The guy was a gutless worm. Great player, but are you serious? Bossy? Again, great player and sniper of his era, but the only guy who can be compared in a serious discussion is Gretzky and I can't even say he was better.
Orr was the Babe Ruth of hockey.
Lemieux ? Your really Trashing 66? No disrespect but clearly you never watched him play...
He was a man among boys..On a whole different level...on a scale of 1 to 10 his skill, vision and hands were 10000. second to almost no one...
Just ask Kevin Stevens.
Just like you love Borque I can name at least a dozen better defenseman then he was..
