biggest champion for the greatest dynasty ever
Won like 11 rings out 13 years? - Cygnus2II2
Hello! 11 Championships in 13 years!
The end! No one is close to William Felton Russell!
3 Bobby Orr
Robert Gordon Orr is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player, widely acknowledged as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.
No better representative of Boston sports. Bobby was simply and humbly the greatest athlete the world has known in any sport! Period!
To the last comment - Right ON! Orr was the most elegant athlete I have ever seen. I would also rank Ali number 2... If Orr had had healthy knees - damaged by opposing players targeting him (something Wayne Gretzky never had to worry about) he would have many more records. If you put only he and Gretzky on the ice and dropped the puck Gretzky wouldn't be able to touch it... Bobby Orr was poetry in motion... Jordan or anyone else you care to name is not even close - not in my lifetime... as Milt Schmidt said if ever there comes along a better player than Bobby Orr I hope I'm alive to see it
Best ever..in ANY sport..there has never been a player who was so clearly the GOAT... And he played on one leg much of his career... On two good knees he would have done who knows what... Sheer poetry... Ali would get my number 2 vote for all sports
Th greatest hockey player of all time. Revolutionized the game of hockey
