Top 10 What If Scenarios in Sports


The Top Ten

1 The Red Sox don't trade Babe Ruth to the Yankees

Possibly a Red Sox dynasty instead of the Yankees - BUETBU91

2 The Tuck Rule had not been called

The Patriots don't become a dynasty. Tom Brady doesn't be the greatest quarterback ever. - BUETBU91

3 The Blazers had drafted Michael Jordan over Sam Bowie

The Blazers become a championship team... possibly. But would Michael Jordan and Clyde Drexler co-exist? - BUETBU91

4 David Tyree doesn't make the helmet catch

The Patriots are undefeated Super Bowl champions. - BUETBU91

5 Wayne Gretzky doesn't get traded to the LA Kings

He might've won another Stanley Cup in Edmonton. - BUETBU91

6 Michael Jordan doesn't retire the first time

I doubt the Bulls would've won eight straight titles because Houston was a dominant team. But still, the theory of eight straight is intriguing. - BUETBU91

7 Lebron James elects not to go to Miami?

He doesn't win a championship at all. - BUETBU91

8 Grady Little takes Pedro Martinez out in the eighth inning

The Red Sox win the ALCS and advance to the World Series. - BUETBU91

9 1995 Nebraska met 2001 Miami in College Football

Nebraska possibly beats Miami - BUETBU91

10 Shaq Doesn't Go to Los Angeles

An Orlando Magic championship perhaps. - BUETBU91

The Contenders

11 The Charlotte Hornets don't trade Kobe Bryant for Vlade Divac
12 Steve Bartman didn't interfere with the ball

With the Cubs leading the 2003 NLCS 3-2 and ahead 3-0 with 1 away in the top of the 8th of game 6, Steve Bartman, a lifelong Cubs fan, interferes with Moses Alou's attempted catch of a foul ball pop up. If Alou catches the ball ( he clearly had a bead on it) the Cubs are 4 outs away from claiming the NL Pennant. Instead, the Marlins end up scoring 8 in the frame, Winniing game 6, and winning game 7 the following night.

13 The Browns didn’t become the Baltimore Ravens

If this wouldn’t have happened then Cleveland wouldn’t be the laughingstock of the league and they would actually probably be mediocre - Randomator
