Bo over Hammerin' Hank? Nope! ;)

In all seriousness, it would be a better argument if Bo's career wasn't cut short by injury.

Hank is the best sports figure. Bo was the best athlete. Bo is be one of the greatest athletes of all time.

Saw the repeat of the 30 for 30 about him last night. If he could have stayed await from that injury, no telling what he could have accomplished. May have been in the Hall of Fame for both sports.

deion and bo both have arguments. this says greatest sports figure. greatest sports figure takes into account the off the field side as well. Bo's baseball and football and his Nike marketing is pretty great but Hank Aaron is Hank Aaron. Prime time stands out in Florida for sure

So I guess there's no argument against Frazier for y'all? I'm thinking Lombardi as "best sports figure" for NJ (fugeddaboudit!)

In Oklahoma, I would have to say overall that it had to be "The Mick". Mickey Mantle was one of the all time great baseball players and if he had not got hurt and injured his knees like he did, he would have hit more home runs than Hank Aaron would have done even though Hammering Hank played a lot longer and had a lot more at bats.

Jim Thorpe was an outstanding athlete and was a great track star, great football player, and was a fair baseball player.

Mighty Mick, was an outstanding football player in high school and most likely could have played college ball. Mick also had blazing speed until he got his spikes caught in a drain cover and he also suffered from the medical expertise of the 1950's, which really help damage his knees even worse.

Hard to argue about Jim Thorpe, but I would say that Mickey Mantle was the greatest athlete to come out of OK. Look at how many World Series Championships "Mighty Mick" won.

Also, in South Carolina, I would have to say that "Shoeless Joe Jackson" and "Bobby Richardson" should have a claim to the spot. Bobby Richardson won several World Series Championships and also was voted The Most Valuable Player in the 1960 World Series. Shoeless Joe Jackson, was one heck of a baseball player. Ty Cobb said that Shoeless Joe was the best hitter in the league and that coming from Ty Cobb was a mouthful!!! I still could see where people would vote for "Smoking Joe" as he was a Great Champion in his time. Every bit as good as all the other fighters, with the exception of George Foreman, who was just too big and strong for Smoking Joe. Smoking Joe gave Ali all he wanted and then some. I personally think that he won the first two fights, but Ali had the people behind him.

Shoeless Joe or Freddie Solomon IMO were better "Athletes" than Joe
Frasier. Frasier was a hell of a boxer / brawler no doubt, but for all round
athletic talent There were better from this state than Smokin' Joe

Although he is buried in Newark, he was born in Brooklyn, HS in Queens, college at Fordham, and never coached or played in NJ.
