He would be Bo Jackson. Gretzky definitely had more awards than Jackson, but the same questions would have remained. Would he have broken all the records? How many championships would he have won? Is he the best to ever play?
At the same time, Bo leaving as early as he did made him even more of a legend. An athlete's decline makes them so much more human.
