Yesterday's Topic of the Day: Most exciting sports moment seen LIVE?You seem to always see the debates about Lebron vs Kobe, 80's vs 90's or Brady vs Manning. These arguments take the best of the best and end up in a pretty good discussion. For today's topic, how about we look at the worst of the best. You know, those athletes that go down in history as a "great" but maybe do not deserve that tag. I will start it off with two of mine:Mike Tyson: Sure he was exciting to watch as he destroyed opponents in the matter of minutes. Who could forgot the one punch knock outs of the helpless Little Mac. Tyson is easily one of the most overrated athletes in history. One dimensional slugger who beat up has-beens from the 70's and bums for the 80's. Name ONE GOOD fighter he ever beat? His fight with Ruddock went to a rematch, while Lennox Lewis knocked him (Ruddock) out cold through the ropes in the 1st round. He lost to Buster Douglas and was dominated by Evander as a huge favorite. McNeely? Seldon? 68 year old Spinx? Slow as molasses Frank Bruno? He fought in probably one of the worst eras in boxing history. Some will argue Joe Namath could be the most overrated player in the history of the NFL. Flashy coats, snappy interviews and the Super Bowl is what made "Broadway Joe". His overall career stats: Barely a 50% career completion percentage (7 of his 13 years were below 50%)173 TDs220 INTsHall of Famer? Yeah, yeah, I know the whole first to toss for 4000 yards thing but does that change his actual numbers?Help me out, who am I missing?

I also think Lebron is so overated but I dont want to start that.
