Craig Sager and Doris Burke are good ones.
As far as players, maybe Giannis. He seems liked and respected by everyone.
With the passing of Vin Scully I got to thinking of people that are basically beloved by everyone.
What current or former athletes, managers, announcers, owners etc are on Scully’s level?
Other famous people outside of sports….who is up there with Vin?
Athletes are tough because if they are on a rival team those fans may not have the respect everyone else does.
As they get way up in age they become more beloved it seems. Betty White? I know the Golden Girls didn’t all get along to great.
