Surprised no one has said him, but i gotta say Steve Nash.

I was going to call this one, too. The guy is practically a God in Canada, worshipped yearly from November to late May.

Consider Kobe's number change. When Shaq switched teams, he was on the top-seller list also. And Marbury is also within the top because he plays in NY.

Funny, isn't it?

My vote's for Kobe. It may be because he has a lot of ******, but whatever the reason, his fans defend him endlessly.

Can it be an inactive player? If so, I'd still go with MJ....

Not true. Nash is only worshiped outside Ontario. I hardly see any Nash jerseys here. Stop listening to the media.

My statement was made after seeing his throngs of fans meet him in Vancouver.

Agreed, there are people who will seemingly defend with their lives to protect MJ's reputation. Granted though, it's usually justified as Jordan is the greatest player of all time.

Agreed, but the race is actually a lot closer than the aforementioned Jordan fanatics are willing to admit.

Kobe fans are the more loyal individuals. They watch LA LAkers because of Kobe, alone. Change the name to LA Kobes already!

No it's not. There's no comparison at all. Jordan is the undisputed GOAT. Wilt isn't close. Magic isn't close. Kareem isn't close. No one is. Jordan COULD HAVE achieved more than he did, but despite missing out on two easy rings, he still achieved more than anyone in the history of the game.

Nice to see one of the aforementioned fanatics step in and prove my point.

Hands down it has to be Jordan. He hasn't even played in years and his fanbase is still strong.
