MJ ofcourse then Shaq he is just known to so many people even non-basketball fans, and why not he is entertaining on and off the court, great sense of humor. He is 325 pounds of pure entertainment.

Yeah, if you mention "Michael Jordan" to pretty much anyone in the world. They will know exactly who you are talking about. Not that many people in the entire world have that kind of effect.

Default Re: Most popular players ever?

Michael Jordan
Magic
Shaq

I would say are the most popular players ever. Honorable mentions go to

Kareem
Iverson
Barkley
Bird
Wilt


And, we can't leave out Yao due to his being from a country with 1.5 billion people.
