What would it be
I would choose soccer. It's a lame sport but the fame is world wide. Even in America we know Beckham or Pelé.... Plus I rather pull all the european & central/south American chicks with that fame. The pay isn't as high as baseball/basketball but the effort on playing is just the same. PS: I don't even like soccer
Volleyball I love it and would love to play for a living.
Can be used professionally and for personal protection.
Good point. I'm just gonna spike balls at people I guess.
Golf. Millions of dollars, hot women, outside 7 days a week, can be relaxing, can remove stress, country club sport, fun.
I go with soccer as well for mainly the same reasons as FU. Even though the salaries arent as good you can make it up with global advertising money. And I have always wanted to play in a world cup.
To most Americans, David Beckham is a soccer superstar. But to the rest of the world, he’s pretty much an average professional footballer — at least in
Boxing. I know it's a dying sport, but if you're great you can pretty much name your price in each fight. I would probably fight anywhere from 2-4 fights a year for about 35-40 million per fight. Plus endorsements and personal appearances.
My second choice would be golf.
The main reason why I would choose these two sports is because they are individual and you don't have to depend on teammates for help or management surrounding you with a decent supporting cast.
My teacher told me that I was a piece of sh*t
Seen her the other day, driving a piece of sh*t
Golf for sure.
Not physically taxing (no long term health problems), outside, ton of fun to play, country club sluts, lots of money, and in warm weather all the time.
Basketball is second.
Ton of money, again no long term health problems most likely, fun as hell.
If you play as hard as Tiger, your knees will be gone. His knees are slowly, but surely decaying.
I'm sure that has nothing to do with all of the navy seal training he did.

Does God mean the best player ever? Like no doubt about Michael Jordan best?
Or just like multi time allstar or something like that?
I'm sure god means to make Michael Jordan look like Morrison71
Well basketball would be interesting. If someone comes around now and is considered better than Jordan, that would be a pretty fun path to take. You would be winning like 7 Championships and just dominating everyone.
Baseball would be pretty cool also. Out of all the players to play the game there isn't really one that jumps out as the best to ever play. Maybe Willie Mays? To be that one player would be pretty damn amazing.
Baseball. Favorite sport, would love to be the dominating starting pitcher, but they don't play enough, so I would go with shortstop or CF. I would love to be able to do what Matt Kemp is doing, beast mode
IF you were a true god and could get about 9-10 Ks a game you would easily approach close to 10 thousand strikeouts in your career. Plus pitching every 4-5 games you would sell out every game no matter where you played.
No doubt about that, but I am talking about myself, I would prefer to play everyday over every 5th day
Although that is a high amount of Ks for a career no matter how good you are. Maybe 6k
Basketball. I'd love to be able to go out there every night and drop 30+ on anybody at any time.
"I was brought in here to change the culture. I'm going to coach with passion" - Fran McCaffery.
Disc Golf, if they tournaments actually made decent money. Love the game, not too taxing on the body, get to be outside and play different courses all the time.
But otherwise-football, but I'd want to still be a Left Tackle. That's what I used to play and I loved it.
I loved playing safety. Loved it.
Also, can we leave religion out of sports threads and VOTH?
Tennis or golf. Both lifelong sports played in good weather worldwide.
Baseball. Once you ink a contract all money is guaranteed.
