How can you not say Magic?

Magic is probably the most likable of all the greats. Who doesnt love Magic?

I'm not really sure what you mean by popular but either way Id go with these 3:

Magic
MJ
Shaq

Just cos everyone knows your name doesnt make you most popular. Not everyone wanted to be like Mike (I wanted his money tho)

MAGIC!

MJ.. he has his own brand and pretty much runs the sneaker world. no other player has had his type of impact on society.

Assuming you mean popular as in "likable", it definitely is Magic + Bird, then Shaq. Mj was hated by A LOT of people. Kareem was hated by the media because he was too introverted. Kobe of course has a lot of ******. Barkley was very controversial. Chamberlain was a goliath, and nobody roots for Goliath.

Yeah true but whay kind of impact really, to sell over priced shoes and make the most money and be in the most commercials? Magic always seemed more charitable and nicer. MJ was obviously great, but I dunno about what he did positive outside the b-ball world.

popularity isnt always positive. there are many people who have done bad things who are more popular than people who have done good. look at bin laden. everyone knows who he is. look at hitler.

That list is way off

Hitler? You might as well put Stalin on the list. There are a lot of people more popular than Madonna. I bet Beckam is more popular than Ali everywhere outside of America and possibly Africa.

Beckham ??!?!?!?!?

Ronaldinho and Ronaldo are by far the most popular player in the world today. Beckham is popular among asian girls and celebrity gossip fans.

Nobody cares about Beckham in Latin America, Africa and most european countries.

All time the most popular is Pele by far, followed by Maradona, Zico and so on.

In terms of Music , The Beatles is the most popular ever. In Sports, It's Pele , followed by Jordan and Ali, mainly because soccer is the most popular sport in the world.
