Houston: James Harden, Jose Altuve, and JJ Watt

lol @ Verlander. He's only been apart of Houston for about 4 months. Altuve is already a Houston legend. Champ and MVP

For active athletes in Boston it's easily Brady and Pedroia as the top 2. Also people are completely in love with Kyrie with good reason.

Cleveland - Jim Brown

Canít go 5 min without a football announcer mentioning his name and the glory days during a blowout loss.

If Hayward were playing i think he'd top Irving. I mean come on, he's white lol.


Don't forget Edelman gets plenty of love. Almost annoyingly too much. I'm tryna think of any Bruins but Lucic is gone. Bergeron jerseys are everywhere.



Can't believe rocsteady didn't even have Boston in his original post but has New Orleans wtf lol??

Yadier Molina by a landslide. Then probably Adam Wainwright and Vladimir Tarasenko.

Duh. Can't believe I forgot that guy. I watched a couple games, he's clearly their best.

Verlander has that appeal due to position and current social relevance though. You have to take that into consideration. Not just guys are into this shit

Can't believe I forgot Beantown.

Patrice Bergeron has to be loved by a good faction of those Bean Pot hockey peoples though.

Kyrie, yeah. He's a baller and speaks like a white person, which Boston likes

Charlotte: Cam Newton, Steph Curry (I know he plays for Golden State but he's considered a hometown hero and very popular), Kemba Walker, Luke Keuchly.

All time: MJ, Dell Curry, Sam Mills, Dale Earnhart, Larry Johnson

Gotta be Oladipo.

Everyone here knows him.

I would say that Robert Mathis is beloved by those who know him. I've done several charity events with him in the past, and he always seems to go above and beyond what other athletes are willing to do.

The whole city seemed emotionally destroyed when he tore his ACL.

Yes, I believe that is due to his position and performance rather than other factors but nah, check this SHIT out:
