    Jordan's popularity is immense due to his success in an American sport that is also popular outside of America and like the most popular shoe brand ever (Yeezy's coming for the throne tho)

    Who is the most popular athlete in the world besides MJ?

    You're probably right... But I think some American athletes like Tiger Woods or Lebron are clearly not as famous worldwide as they are in America (I don't really know who Tiger Woods is tbh), while Tyson and Ali are history

    It's funny how cultures differ because I know like three soccer players' names but couldn't tell you a thing about them or what they look like
