Unfortunate to say it, but this guy is an embarrassment to the US, and to the sport. Not a class act at all.V3 Comments
Ali trash talked every opponent he ever faced in the ring and then just trash talked them in interviews. Ali later on said that he only did those things for popularity to make his career grow and apologized to anyone he said things to. Yet it still doesn't take away how he blabbered all over the world. Ali said repeatedly that he was the greatest and maybe he was but that's why they called him the Louisville Lip. Ali was the biggest trash talker out of them all but unlike most of the athletes on here he always backed it up which definitely deserves respect for dealing with the likes of people like Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, and many others.
People get inspire from his talk of arrogance...It is his affirm believe and faith what he shouted...He always put smile on people around him with his jokes and humor.. He treated people so humbly that everyone consider that he is his friend...
Had an amazing arrogance, but he backed it up. And through history, outside of the sport, he has loved the people around him, and those throughout the world he could influence.V1 Comment
Lebron thinks that he's the best thing that ever happened to the NBA and for the people who watch the sports center know all to well that we see way too much of Lebron. He thinks he's better than Michael Jordan but yet hasn't even become better than Bryant yet. Lebron also thought that he was to good for the Cavaliers and said he needed to be on a better team. Compared to the old Chicago Bull's players Lebron is just an average basketball player in an age with less talent in basketball.
He won a championship, but that still doesn't save him from literally ripping Cleveland sports' fans hearts out when he "took his talents to South Beach" just so he could win a championship. Furthermore, he's a crybaby and like Tom Brady wants everything on his side. - Apples23
I, for one, Iike Brady, but there's absolutely no denying he is very cocky and whines like a baby whenever he wants a call for him. It almost seems like he can't except defeat, well THAT'S PART OF SPORTS! - Apples23V1 Comment
DeSean doesn't even have a reason to be arrogant. He said he was going to guarantee a super bowl and the Eagles barley made it into the playoffs. I'm sure the Eagles were extremely glad trading him to another team.V1 Comment

Tyson is by far my favorite athlete but his arrogance would lead to his downfall. Tyson eventually made some stupid choices by getting rid of his good trainer Kevin Rooney, doing every drug possible, and thinking he was God himself in the ring. He soon would lose respect for fighters in the ring which left Tyson getting beat by people like Buster Douglas and Evander Holyfield. Tyson just as well as Ali said he was the best ever but that was at a later time when Tyson's life became a complete disaster. When Tyson was a young and healthy fighter Tyson was the greatest fighter of all time if he would've kept going on that good path who knows what else he could have accomplished.
