I think they asked for coolest, not the most bitter for no reason.

In that case, Jordan is incredibly bitter. See his HOF acceptance speech.

Jordan was a great player obviously, but he does not come off as "cool" to me. You wouldn't see Muhammad Ali or Bo Jackson starring in a movie with Bugs Bunny, would you? Don't get me wrong, I love Space Jam, but Jordan did not come off as "cool" in that movie or ever, really, as great an athlete as he was.

Bill Murray came out of that movie looking cool as hell, though.

The great Muhammad Ali. Everyone pales by comparison. He helped polarize a nation about Vietnam. Striped of his title for political reasons , wins it back twice.

Brought back boxing from the back page to the front page. He was a my hero growing up and nothing but respect for the man today.

Foreman was really a jerk in his younger boxing years. Clear up through losing to Ali.:


Really? I've watched a lot of footage of Foreman on and off the ring in his younger years and have read a lot about him and I have never seen any evidence that he was a jerk. I've heard a few people claim that before, but never any examples. Foreman himself admits that he was brash and unrefined when he was younger, but you also have to consider that he went through a major religious transformation so his idea of a jerk would likely be different than ours....although I've never heard him use that word to describe himself.

You may very well be right of course. So if you have any examples, please share them.

Ok, I'll say it. Russell Wilson. I know it's still early in his career, but no matter the criteria or how one defines it... Russell Wilson is the epitome of cool. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82421 There's enough known about Wilson to trust that he will not veer off course.

Thanks, Russell. You have quickly become arguably the coolest athlete ever to play for the coolest franchise (no question about it) in any sport.

That's how I define cool.

Wilt Chamberlain was so, so cool... So was Dr. J.
Nowadays, David Ortiz and Felix Hernandez fit the bill.
