The discussion was between Clark and Max Kellerman, who is a veteran sports analyst, where both of them showed clear support for different athletes. While Clark was trying his best to claim Woods as the rightful athlete for the title, Kellerman was in support of NBA legend Michael Jordan.

Clark explained that Woods was not the clear winner for the title because of how great he is at playing golf. Instead, he deserves the title because he is the reason for people watching and enjoying golf in the first place. He said it was because of Woods that people who found golf boring, like Clark himself, started watching the sport and fell in love with the sport.

Kellerman didn’t think that the title was deserved by Usain Bolt. But he didn’t agree for it to be  Woods either. He said that Bolt couldn’t be the deserving athlete as he is a sprinter, and most sprinters according to Kellerman are “failed football and basketball players”. The veteran also claimed that football and basketball have the best athletes. He said, “Track and field stars are usually failed football and basketball players. The Best athletes, cause that’s where the money is, go into basketball and football,”.
