      • Only two tracksters on that map. I'm mildly surprised that Joan Benoit is not the most popular from Maine.

        • Well the choice from Minnesota, Kevin Garnett, was born and raised in South Carolina.
          The choice for Wisconsin, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was born and raised in New York.
          I'm sure that there are others states where a basketball player happened to play in the state as a professional, but has no other connection to the state. Very lazy.

            No women made the list? Or, did I overlook her?

            • Danny Ainge in Oregon? Is that suppose to be a joke.

              Jim McMahon in Utah? I doubt he is fondly remembered in Utah with his later comments. Also he was born in New Jersey.

              Dwayne Wade in Illinois?

              Whole thing is silly....

              Ever wondered which sportsperson is most revered in each state of the United States? Top US Casinos has uncovered the top star born in each state to reveal which athlete steals the show the most back home.

              • Jim Thorpe is a historical/sentimental choice for Oklahoma but I would have guessed Mickey Mantle.

                  I imagine if you asked everyone in Florida if they had heard of Roy Jones, Neon Deion, Bob Hayes, Chris Evert, Emmitt Smith

                  Chris Evert would come out on top and Bob Hayes second

                    Sillier still is the method for determining the "Top Athlete"

                    ..we analyzed each athlete’s respective Wikipedia page to assess visits during a twelve-month period between March 2020-March 2021. The athlete for each state with the most page views during this period is considered their area’s leading hometown hero

                    • Ali and Jordan are the obvious choices for the first two states I lived in.

                        The method used might identify the most popular from each state, it can't identify the most popular in a state as Wikipedia visits can come from anywhere in the world. Also, someone might get a lot of extra visits just because of a link from one particular other article.

                          I looked for that too and didn't see any women.

                          • Most Americans have no interest in women's sports.
                            96% of sports on American TV are men's sports, and most people are perfectly fine with that.
