How can this thread have existed this long without someone mentioning Shane Garner? Hands down the best athlete in the last 30-40 years.

Yes, I overlooked his name in the original post. That must make you intellectually superior to me. Do you have an opinion, or just a smartass comment?

I know both very well. Shane was and still is the better all around athlete of the two.

Brice was the better football player though.

I also know both very well. Shane is now in better shape than Brice, don't make Shane a better athlete than Brice was in high school. Both very good athletes, but I believe Brice was the better athlete in high school. Many arguments can be made for both sides. A good argument could be made for Wesley as well.

I agree about Wilt, but let's break down Shane vs. Brice :

Football - Hands down, Brice. Was more physical and just as fast.

Basketball - Shane, but not as by wide a margin as Brice in football.

Baseball - Hands down, Shane. D1 college arm.

Track - This one's a push. Shane was a state ranked hurdler. I don't have many memories of Brice in track. If I had to pick one, it would be Shane. Wesley blows them both away.

I probably am intellectually superior to you. I don't have an opinion and it wasn't a smartass comment. You were the one who tried to insult the other people in this thread ("How can this thread have existed this long without someone mentioning Shane Garner?") when they had actually done (in the first post, no less) that which you were claiming they hadn't done. If you weren't so enamored with the sound of your own voice, you might pick up on what other people are saying.

I will have to disagree with you about basketball Shane was a fine ball player, but he didn't have guys 2 to 6 inches tall than him guarding him. I remember seeing Brice in the sectionals playing against a D-1 college player and Brice scored 24 or 26 pts. I believe the guy was 6'11 went on to play for SLU. If Brice and Shane were to play one on one, both of them as seniors in school, Brice wins. He would be able to guard Shane on the peremeter. Shane would a tough time guarding him in the paint.

I was typing not talking, Einstein. If you took my post to be insulting, your skin is wayyyyyy too thin to be on this particular board, especially if you intend to troll a topic you have no opinion about.
