In the olden days, soccer was very popular globally but not so much in the United States. But after Team USA’s great run at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, new TV ratings were set. With the Major League Soccer continuing to grow as a global competition, Soccer continues to flourish in the United States market.
One such player who had their career cut short by acting out and drugs was Marvin Barnes. Barnes is one of the saddest yet most interesting stories in NBA history, yet it is one with a glimmer of hope. Barnes had the nickname â€œBad News Marvinâ€ because of his off the court issues.
Speaking of popularity, no one ever came close from the Michael Jordan. This man popularized NBA to the world in the 1980s to 1990s. He also was the most well-rounded and marketed athlete of his generation. No wonder, every basketball player looks up to him.
