Michael Jordan Named Greatest Black Athlete of All-Time

ESPN’s The Undefeated partnered with Survey Monkey to poll the public on the 50 Greatest Black Athletes. In April, 10,350 adults were asked to rank 200 athletes on 20 different surveys.

The result of their poll was that Michael Jordan, a perfect combination of dominance, impact and inspiration was ranked the greatest black athlete of all-time. From the time he was cut from varsity as a sophomore in high school to building his own billion-dollar brand. In 15 NBA seasons, Jordan was nothing short of dominant, claiming six NBA titles in six trips to the Finals, with six Finals MVPs.

Ranking just behind Jordan was Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Willie Mays, and Jesse Owens. You can check out ESPN’s full list here.
