The 10 Most Loved Sports Figures In Dallas

Professional sports, whether it be football, basketball, baseball or hockey, are some of America’s greatest forms of entertainment. They have the ability to bring people together like nothing else can. The stars of those sports provide fans with a great deal as well. They can be heroes, villains, inspirations, or sources of great controversy. Michael Jordan is a prime example of this; he was loved by millions around the world who just wanted to “be like Mike”, but his off the court escapades and his career as an NBA executive have been quite divisive in their own right.

As a city, Dallas has a tremendously rich sports history. The Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars have won a combined seven league championships between them, as well as countless division and conference titles. But it also has a large number of athletes that are truly loved and admired by the Dallas sports faithful as a community. That’s why we here at LocalPov have decided to count down the 10 Most Loved Dallas Sports Figures.
