Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen considers NBA star Michael Jordan to be the most outstanding athlete in world sports history.

“For me it is the greatest,” explained the closer of the MLB team. “Being criticized and still going hungry and pushing for victory. That says it all.”

Born in Curaçao, Kenley Jansen has excelled in baseball, but these words about the historic basketball star show that he is a fan of the sport.

Jordan is a sports figure who has won the admiration of many people, including athletes from other disciplines such as Jansen. So it is not surprising that they have such a good opinion of him.
