The 7-time NBA champion praises Serena Williams with comments that could anger Michael Jordan and LeBron James: ‘What man ever went out and had a frigging kid…’

Serena Williams is the greatest tennis player of all time. There is no doubt about it. She is also considered by many to be one of the greatest athletes of all time, male or female. However, former NBA champion Robert Horry went one step further. He called her “the greatest athlete of all time“.

Williams was recently eliminated in the third round of the US Open. She then received a standing ovation from the crowd, who recognized her greatness and took it as an opportunity to thank her for a great career that spanned decades. Williams lost to Australian player Aija Tomljanovic 7-5, 6-7, 6-1. She has won every trophy and award there is for a player of her caliber to win. Also, she came back from pregnancy and dominated the court as if nothing had happened.

Robert Horry saw all of this and had to celebrate her as the greatest athlete of all time. “For me she is the greatest athlete of all time, whether male or female,” he explained in a recent podcast. According to Horry, he has not seen a man come back from pregnancy and deliver on the pitch like Serena did. In fact, he believes women get far less credit for such achievements. He added, “What man ever went out and had a frigging kid and a comeback like that.”

Generally male athletes like Michael Jordan and Lebron James dominate the conversation for the greatest athletes. However, according to Horry, no male athlete has proven fatal after undergoing anything resembling pregnancy. As such, Serena deserves the edge in the greatest female athlete of all time debate.
