Kids, bless their hearts only see the numbers and want to be just like their hero, only when they grow up do they then see the person and all of their faults just like us. I never had a real sport hero growing up maybe I missed something maybe not. pro sports has taken the good out of sports with huge money. I really prefer college sports especially football, I catch a few tournaments here and there but not a lot. I did however watch a lot of boxing growing up and still do! Not many NBA players like MJ or LJ ever come along and most of us got to see both.
