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.

Ronaldinho? His start is already falling. Do you mean Cristiano Ronaldo?

Beckham, Not uh, my grandparents wouldn't be able to tell you who he is. Beckham isn't even the best or close to at what he does.

Players known by people who haven't even watched a basketball game in their lives? Easily Shaq, Jordan and Magic.

People only know Nash because he was the MVP, people only know Yao because he's 7"6, and people only know Dirk because he was in the Finals.

"Magic" - Unique.

Their names just click when you hear it. There's only one Jordan/Tiger/Iverson/Shaq/Magic/(Insert unique, popular name here.)

The people knows Ming Yao because he is of China and that is the nation populated of the world. Is also because he is talentoso. The to be very high does not do one very popular as they Be Bradley tested very well. I once be new an Eskimo during my time in Alaska and he was very high, but did not say good-bye a ball of leather. He was not very popular.

Yao is popular because he is from China. more Chinese people watch the NBA now than American people. not surprising considering China has a population of 1.3 billion!
