    I initially thought the people vouching for Taylor were just over-reacting since I'm more of an NBA fan.
    Looked at some videos and honestly yes, the people were right.

    How about running back Joe Delaney of the Kansas City Chiefs, during the offseason after his rookie year he jumped in a pond in Louisiana to save to Drowning children but he couldn't swim and he died. Not to mention he ran for over a thousand yards in his only NFL season.

    Yao was good but wasn't the best player in his role and if just talking about playing ability then any humanity involvement should be ignored. The basketball player who got an OD makes no sense since he never played a single game in the pros. Bobby Orr still is a hockey god and we all know that. Sandy is regarded as the one of the best. Any player at 30 is at their peak.

    Didn't quite do Mike Bossy justice. Had 50 goals 9 of his 10 NHL seasons (10th was shortened by injury). Only one other player in history had 9 50 goal seasons, Gretzky, and it was over twice as many seasons
    I know it's not a hockey list, but you could almost make a case for Lemieux too. Between the cancer and back pain so bad he couldn't bend over to tie his own skates before some games, and despite never playing his 1000th career game, he's still top 10 all time in NHL points. Imagine if he'd stayed healthy and had a full 20 year career

    The only players in NHL history with higher Points per Game average over their careers are Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Mike Bossy. As a defenceman, he had 6 straight 100 point seasons, including 139 points (102 assists) and 135 points (46 GOALS.. for a defenceman.. and 89 assists). Utterly insane skill and drive.
