Was just wondering if anyone has had the discussion comparing Kelly Slater to other great athletes. He has won 11 World Championships, 50 titles and is 40 yrs. old. Has he had any consistent rivals like a Magic vs. Bird?? I mean Mick and Andy seem to be the only surfers to win multiple world championships during the Kelly Era. However, what other athlete could dominate like Kelly. This was a work conversation and it seems to be fully on my mind after watching Kelly score a perfect 10 and a high 9 in the Quarter Finals of the Quicksilver Pro 2012. The one victory that has eluded him.
What other athletes can compete with this freak athlete?????
