Baseballers, Footballers and basketball players may warrant a place on your list.

Yes they may not have won the title at the end of the line for their respective pursuits.

But why the hell drag a proven winner in a totally unrelated sport into your rant.

FYI Greg Norman competed in an individual sport that pits 144 players against each other on a weekly basis. The sport does not recognise one true world championship. It places four tournaments on a higher level than others to afford a status symbol to measure / compare success. It is hard to find a list of players that have achieved more victories on the golf course. Golf is a sport where the american administrators have not been able to self proclaim their own championships as "WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS".

Golf is truly a world game and one in which Greg Norman dominated for 331 straight weeks as the World Number one golfer.

FYI Greg Norman won 20 tournaments on the USPGA tour.
FYI Greg Norman won 14 tournaments on the European tour. Two of those happened to be majors, the 1986 and 1993 British opens

FYI Greg Norman won 31 tournaments on the Australasian tour. 5 of those victories were in the Australian Open ( our national tournament and highest honour) . A tournament that Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player considered the 5th major in the 60's and 70's.

FYI Greg Norman won 25 other tournaments around the world. Some of those included events with such names as World Match Play Champion ( 3 times) and the Anderson Consulting World Championship of golf.

Stick to referencing basketballers and footballers in your discussions, where you seem to think you know what you are talking about. Golf is obviously not an area you know much about.

Greg Norman is an Australian Icon and proven winner and I would love to help educate you on the finer points of the game of golf, if interested fellow braintrust member.

Why does this not surprise me? I produce a list with 18 names on it, and make ONE mistake, and the haters and detractors and braintrust members fall all over themselves to IGNORE the validity of the spirit of the post and point out the one little effing error.

I actually feel sorry for people who feel the need to thump their chest after such and empty Pyrrhic "victory". Poor bastards...

And to top it all off, I'm called a Kool Aid drinker because I point out the FACT that not all great athletes are defined by the titles they've failed to win?

Pathetic....sad little pathetic internet people....

Careful, you are speaking with facts and logic. That's not appreciated by the kool-aid drinkers. Apparently they can't read either.

If you can not see that LeBron James will go down as one of the best athletes in history that's really sad to be missing the obvious, REGARDLESS of titles

Found this...not my words, but since apparently I'm too ignorant about golf to even have an opinion, I thought perhaps the view of an avid golf fan would lend some legitimacy.



If any one player has had the worst luck ever, it has been Greg Norman. Although he has won the British Open twice, Norman never won any of the major US Titles. He has finished second in all three major US Tournaments (the Masters, US Open, and the Open Championship) five times.

Norman also had a chance to win the Grand Slam in 1986 and although he finished first in the British Open that year, Norman finished second in two of the three opens in the US.

The saddest part is he was normally leading in most of these tournaments, but choked away the leads; talk about bad luck.



Oh, and, Nadroj....this is so much less about facts and what's real and so much more about simply always taking the position contrary to mine...

LeBron James: Not Man Enough To See It Through

Quote:
LeBron James is used to putting on a basketball performance the likes of which we've never seen before. In Games 4, 5 and 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Boston Celtics, he awed us.

Only this time, the man who once scored 29 of the final 30 points for his Cleveland Cavaliers in a double-overtime victory in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons showed us that heís capable of something we never thought weíd see him do -- quit.

The excuses are all there for a man who never makes excuses: maybe his end goal was to get Head Coach Mike Brown fired, maybe the elbow injury is more serious than he is letting on, maybe impending free agency was too much of a burden.

LeBron James is heartless

But nobody thought we would see a lack of heart from King James. In Game 5, he was disinterested. In Game 6, he was more interested in a triple-double than a win. Maybe weíd expect this from Joe Johnson, but not LeBron James, right? (stats are everything)

Apparently not. Therein lies the difference; itís what separates LeBron James from the Michael Jordans and Larry Birds of the world. Heís not the man that they were. Itís no longer a question of talent or skill; itís a question of heart.

Take it personal


Jordan and Bird would have never allowed Game 5 to happen -- a 32-point home loss in a 2-2 series tie -- and if they somehow did, you can bet your house that they would die hard with a vengeance in Game 6. They would take it personally.

Players like Bird, Jordan, Kevin Garnett and Dwyane Wade would sooner collapse on the court than lose in that fashion. Itís no coincidence that the latter three players were picked for the Gatorade ďThatís GĒ commercial and LeBron James was not.

The Pistons used to be a big roadblock for Jordan, but he never bolted. He saw it through with Chicago. Thatís G.

Garnett would have retired a Timberwolf no matter how many times they missed the playoffs. Thatís G.

Wade and the Miami Heat were on the brink of an insurmountable 0-3 deficit in the 2006 NBA Finals before he single-handedly willed his team to victory in the game and series. Thatís G.

But at this point in time, after watching LeBron James wilt under the pressure, we can say that he simply doesnít have the heart to stay and see things through.

LeBron James is turning his back

James has tried his best in Cleveland -- at least until this playoff series -- and since he canít win with this team and since the Cavs wonít have the financial flexibility to make wholesale changes, itís inevitable that LeBron James will leave.

And for him, itís the easiest time to turn his back and walk away. After all, itís easier to quit and walk away from the face of adversity than to try, and try, and try until you succeed.

The Cavaliers are a 61-win team, which you might find hard to believe at this moment. They may only be a coaching or point guard change away from being a dynasty, and while LeBron James had a financial agreement contracting him to perform for the Cleveland Cavaliers for his entire career, he apparently hasnít made the unspoken agreement that heís here to see things through.

LeBron James is not G


But Jamesí final performances and his choice to leave Cleveland now that the going has gotten tough, thatís not G.

ďWhatís G?Ē as the commercial asks and answers, ďIt is the heart, hustle and soul of the game.Ē After watching Game 4 and 5, LeBron James is not G.

At the end of the day, he doesnít owe the Cavaliers -- or their fans -- anything. Heís fulfilled his contract and heíll go to New York to be the biggest superstar or heíll go to Chicago to transition the Jordan era to his, but a real man would see it through.

Bodie didnít ditch the corners when Marlo took over, Vincent Chase would never ditch E, Turtle and Drama, and Jake Sully wouldnít leave the Naívi so they could become extinct.

Those men saw it through, but LeBron James didnít, canít and wonít.

At least you have that stat book.

Askmen.com....

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

It's one thing to quote Wojnarowski, who, although an over-the-top complete sell-out as an LBJ hater, at least has SOME cred working for yahoo sports, but posting up some 3rd rate blogger from a 4th rate site is just awful.

I just wonder how much of this is just hate for me and everything I post and how much of it is real ignorance...can you guys REALLY be this stupid?

You should take a lesson from lechoke and learn when to quit.

At least you have those stat books.
