“Whose on deck?”
Currently, we are enamored by the likes of Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Kyrie Irving. In the NFL we love Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Odell Beckham Jr., and JJ Watt. And what about the MLB and NHL, not to mention the Serena Sisters in tennis. But who, who will be the next group, or better yet the next great athlete to change sports. Because Lebron James is the biggest name right now. But he has been in the league for a while now and could be retiring in the next few years. So who will come along from college, or better yet, are they in high school or middle school now.
In the past it was difficult to tell. But today, there are trackers who watch out for names already ranked in high school. They are individuals like that of the high school basketball phenom Zion Williamson who is a freshman at Duke University. So to a degree, we can project, but there is no real way to tell who will break out and be great. Because the tracking report is contingent on who stays healthy when they break out. If the big names get injured or don’t perform as well, we call them a bust.
Does the name Steve Largent ring a bell? Well, a lot of people don’t know this name, but should because he is known for the grind in sports history. He came into the NFL unknown, but went on to become one the of greatest NFL players in history breaking numerous records. His bust is enshrined in Canton, Ohio, but you would have never known him, had he not have pushed past all the critics. He even beat out some names on the list that year for future Hall of Fame that were top draft picks. So here is yet another reason to not know the next best athletes because we constantly see the sleepers in the league.
