    I think the OP probably meant OLD living legends. Those who don't get much press now... but when they die the media will be all over it.

    So I'd leave out the Federers and Serenas of the world.

    Yep... good choices. Gene Hackman... one of my favorite actors. Looked him up and he's 90

    I guess you tend to think your favorite stars are going to last forever.

    David Steward - Out of the 600+ billionaires in America 7 are African-American
    World Wide Technology, an IT services company that has generated over $11 billion in sales, His networth is 3.7Billion


    Robert F. Smith. America's richest black man. Cornell graduate, former Goldman Sachs executive works in equity.
    https://www.businessinsider.com/robe...-pledge-2019-9

    His pledge to give away free stuff? Was to the entire Spellman class of 2019, then upped it to include their parent's unpaid college debt.
    The gift will cost Smith $34 million & his net worth is over $6 billion.

    The other 5 billionaires are pretty all entertainers and apparently entertainers are all liberal which =all evil.



    These men & women I listed will never be known because not a jack damn media outlet will make them known and this includes stank ass right wing media outlets. They are the last to give credit to anyone not supportive of their ideology.
    NAACP aint interested in awarding scientists, scholars, rather actors, actresses and rappers & athletes. They know who their master is.

    I appreciate my boxers, but I wouldnt call a single one a living legend (outside entertainment). Ali was the only one and the closest would be Manny Pacquiao because he ran for office for the benefit of his people- which is to the detriment of his bank account- in fact his nation may force him into bankruptcy because of his huge heart.


    Sorry to burst bubbles or turn a positive thread negative, I just think we prove our inability to live with one another when we can only agree on entertainers as legends and none others.

    Well, to be fair, entertainers etc are more likely to be well known and famous. No doubt the people you mention are deserving, but they are aren't 'living legends' (in my view anyway)

    I didn't mean the thread to be about deserving people, or noble people who have done great things and should be better known and remembered, nor about who the media should and shouldn't be giving great coverage to.

    No offence or argument started, buddy. I would have put Stephen Hawking on the list if he hadn't kicked the bucket already

    Cool, grant me a one-time troll pass!

    Mindset for me; if we weren't so attached to sport & play as the means to unite us, I think those names would be living legends, but that isn't the real world.

    Living Legends, so many in entertainment & sports, I'll agree with all names listed.

    Although I'm torn on gossip of the private life of Russell Simons, man, that dude opened the door for almost every black comedian dating back to a young Martin Lawrence to Chris Tucker, Steve Harvey, Cedric The Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, whew! Def Comedy Jam was the doorway for a lot of great actors comics today.


    Joe Montana, the guy's average size-makes his 3-0 SuperBowl Appearances all the more amazing.

    This name may be out there- but Fran Tarkenton is an unsung hero who deserves to be considered the Living Legend that changed the entire game for QuarterBacks.

    B4 him they stood in the pocket, thats it. When he did what they called back then (scrambling) ...today some think it is an expectation to be mobile if one is (flushed) out the pocket.
    I consider flushed out the pocket as the new term for scrambling. True he didnt win the big one, but he changed the game for QBs.

    Fran did that!
