Barry Bonds was so great he led the NBA in home runs too

Mar 11, 2014, 1:01 PM EDT

ESPN shows us what a renaissance man Barry Bonds truly was:

 

Also: he scored more goals than Muhammed Ali and was the last horse to win the Triple Crown.

    Sorry ESPN, but Chuck Connors had two HRs with the Cubs & was also a Celtic. Another swing and miss for the worldwide leader…

      Chuck Connors could handle a rifle too. He could do it all.

        Too bad he didn’t use it on ESPN (just joking Mr. NSA Man.)

      Danny Ainge hit a pair for the Blue Jays before also playing with the Celtics.

        Looks like the Celtics were a great judge of power hitters!

      Gene Conley, a pitcher no less, has both Conners and Ainge beat, with 5 homers.

        It’s old Groat, I’m telling you. 39.

      • rje49 - Mar 11, 2014 at 9:06 PM

        Yeah, Dick Groat played for the 52-53 Ft. Wayne Pistons!

    This is absolutely correct. I challenge the NBA to show us anyone else who hit more.

    Forgetting this beyotch.

      The Rifleman hit his two dingers in 700 fewer PA though. ;)

    With helmet so large
    And enhanced biceps to match
    Barry transcends sport

    Wilt Chamberlain leads NBA history with 20,000 lays. No way Bonds broke that record!

    • yahmule - Mar 11, 2014 at 2:31 PM

      Why did you have to crap on your own punchline and not call them “home runs?”

      • halladaysbiceps - Mar 11, 2014 at 2:39 PM

        True. I screwed that one up.

  7. rbj1 - Mar 11, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    Barry’s also the NHL leader in touchdowns.

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Mar 11, 2014 at 4:22 PM

      Do some research fool. Mario Andretti is way ahead of Barry there, and Olga Korbut is a close second.

  8. evansox - Mar 11, 2014 at 1:53 PM

    Maybe someday Bonds will be enshrined and have a plaque next to greats such as Bruce Sutter and Jim Rice.

  9. historiophiliac - Mar 11, 2014 at 1:54 PM

    Seriously working hard to suppress a “they-all-look-the-same” joke…

    • infieldhit - Mar 11, 2014 at 5:50 PM

      Not working that hard, apparently.

      • historiophiliac - Mar 11, 2014 at 7:22 PM

        I can’t help it if your mind finishes my thought.

  10. jkcalhoun - Mar 11, 2014 at 2:29 PM

    Three words: Richard Morrow Groat.

  11. earpaniac - Mar 11, 2014 at 3:19 PM

    With all the chemicals he was on, he might’ve been able to win the Triple Crown.

    • dcarroll73 - Mar 11, 2014 at 3:59 PM

      And Alydar was damned mad that he nosed him out in all three races. He wanted to file a challege (you know how bad doping is in “horse” racing) but his stable thought it might generate a lot of unwanted attention.

        “Oh, Wilbur!”
