    In the West Indies? If Thierry Henry counted...what about Tim Duncan? 3 MVPs, maybe the best basketball player of our time since Jordan?

    True... Thierry Henry counts... so does Duncan.. I forgot about them. Plus there is also Partick Ewing, Mike Maccallum and Lennox Lewis.

    I guess Stephen Ames would get a bligh too...

    Funny how the "west indies" includes Jamaica and possibly Haiti, but skips over Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Puerto, simply because of Race...if not...the greatest Athlete could be...umm....A Boxer like Trinidad ( ain't he dominican?) ...or maybe a baseball player like Roberto Clemente

    Because typically only the English speaking C'bean and Guyana would identify themselves as being West Indian. As opposed to people from Cuba, or Ouerto Rico who would say they're Cuban, or Puerto Rican.
