one can be elite w/out being the best in his day, ask Cristiano Ronaldo
Eh id disagree without another example. I dont follow soccer, so couldnt comment on Ronaldo
neither do I but he will never win with Messi healthy.
let's try a basketball example: Chris Paul and Paul Pierce may never win an MVP but they are still elite players.
i liek the Paul & Pierce examples Bubbs!
well let's not argue who is better than who, as it's too debatable & i doubt either of us have the time, but to name a few
Karl Malone, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, & Patrick Ewing (please forgive me for leaving out a couple) all played at the same time. just bc one might be better than the other does not mean that they were not elite
Tom Brady & Peyton Manning both played at the same time. Not going to argue which was better than the other, but that does not mean they are not both elite.
as i said, elite really depends on the person using the word as to what it actually means. i bet there are plenty of people who would argue between who was more ELITE? Bo Jackson or Emmitt Smith? Some look at longevity & accomplishments. Some look at pure talent & potential.
