NHL, NFL, MLB, and NBA....greatest player to wear 19....list 1st round and then we'll argue...

NHL-Stevie Y....duh

NFL-Joe Montana

MLB-Tough one, but going with Bob Feller

NBA-Going to take some thinking to come up with, so it's a head start


In the spirit of things, I'll take a rematch and you pick the next number


NHL: Don't care about Hockey

NFL: Well since you went with the obvious choice, I'll go with Johnny Unitas.

MLB: Tony Gwynn

NBA: Bob Cousy


nba-willis reed...won 2 championships, hobbled leg, and the spirit of new York...but i'll give you cousy

nhl....no arugument so I get that one

nfl....it was sketchy to go with Montana in a kc uniform but no way unitas compares with the results, not to mention the reason west coast passing flourished...unitas may have been a founder of the forward passing game, but Montana (and I hate the niners) might have perfected it along with being mr. clutch.

mlb...gwynn may be one of the greatest hitters, but only once drove in 100 rbis, never 20 hrs, and only twice scored 100 runs, and 1 world series loss (and batted 5-19)...feller won 20 games 6 times, took 3 1/2 years for military service and came back dominant for another decade, and won every pitching award in '40

Brian Trottier and Larry Robinson.

Montana is best known for wearing #16.

Bob Cousy was 14 for all of his years as a Celtic.

Cousy retired from the Celtics in 1963 & wore # 14. I'm guessing the 7 games he played for Cincinnati (1969-70 season) he wore # 19.

I don't believe that you're only guessing what number Cousy wore for Cinncy. You probably were there in person for every game. ;^D
