The term “legend” is thrown around generously in professional sports. However, if you step back and think about the magnitude of the word “legend,” you can’t help but to wonder if it’s a bit abused. Legendary status to me means excelling at a level that is not only above your peers, but also higher than anyone has ever achieved. To me, it means winning multiple world titles, defeating the best competition of your time, all while blazing a trail and inspiring a nation of fans along the way.
