During the Afternoon show Tyrone, Jenn, and Connor played a fun game with listeners. The “GOAT” draft.  The criteria is simple. Pick a team compiled of the “Greatest of All Time.” The listeners got the first pick in the draft so the afternoon show was behind the 8-ball.

Listeners Greatest of All Time List

Here is the afternoon shows list!

  • 1) Michael Jordan

    Michael Jordan was chosen by Tyrone.

    Lebron went #1 which made this an easy choice for Tyrone.

  • 2) Michael Phelps

    Michael Phelps was chosen by Jen.

    Michael Phelps is probably the greatest, most dominant Olympic athlete ever.

  • 3) Muhammed Ali

    Muhammed Ali was chosen by Connor.

    Ali is considered by many to be the best boxer of all time.

  • 4) Wayne Gretzky

    Wayne Gretzky was chosen by Tyrone.

    Wayne Gretzky is the greatest hockey player ever and to get him at pick 9 is a steal

  • 5) Tom Brady

    Tom Brady was chosen by Jen.

    The QB GOAT.

  • 6) Usain Bolt

    Usain Bolt was chosen by Connor.

    Not many would argue if you said Usain Bolt was the most dominant track and field star ever.

  • 7) Jim Brown

    Jim Brown was chosen by Tyrone. 

    Jim Brown at pick 15?! The guy was a dominant force in football, basketball and lacrosse and basically dominated any sport he played.

  • 8) Pele

    Pele was chosen by Jen.

    Pele introduced a lot of people to the sport of soccer. A truly dominant force and one of the best to ever play.

  • 9) Carl Lewis

    Carl Lewis was chosen by Connor.

    9 Gold Medals…..NINE.

  • 10) Willie Mays

    Willie Mays was chosen by Tyrone.

    I know Tyrone thinks Willie Mays is the best baseball player EVER so to get him at pick 21 is incredible value.

  • 11) Wilt Chamberlain

    Wilt Chamberlain was chosen by Jen.

    The fact that the listeners let Wilt drop to pick 23 is insane.

  • 12) Roger Federer

    Roger Federer was chosen by Connor.

    Roger is certainly in GOAT status with tennis. A sport he has dominated.

  • 13) Babe Ruth

    Babe Ruth was chosen by Tyrone.

    Jackie-Joyner Kersee was chosen by Jen. 

    JJK might be the greatest female track and field star ever.

    Jackie Robinson wasnt just a stud baseball player. In fact, many experts said baseball was his WORST sport and tennis was actually his best sport. He was a stand out track and field star at UCLA and also a football player as well as basketball. An athletic freak.

  • 16) Kareem-Abdul Jabbar

    Kareem-Abdul Jabbar was chosen by Tyrone.

    Most points in NBA history.

    Jack Nicklaus was chosen by Connor.

    An absolute legend in golf and someone who has a case as “The Greatest Golfer of All Time.”

    Sugar Ray Robinson was chosen by Tyrone.

    Sugar Ray Robinson had 174 wins and 109 of those was by knockout. Thats insane.

  • 20) Magic Johnson

    The greatest point guard to ever live.
