Cause muscle would slow him down on the court and it's harder to shoot. He lost a lot of weight because of that.

>Thorpe began his athletic career at Carlisle in 1907 when he walked past the track and beat all the school's high jumpers with an impromptu 5-ft 9-in jump still in street clothes.[15] His earliest recorded track and field results come from 1907. He also competed in football, baseball, lacrosse and even ballroom dancing, winning the 1912 intercollegiate ballroom dancing championship.

Let me tell you why you are wrong

American Football: Literally takes little to no skill. You see people switching between positions all the time. Linebacker goes to DE. QB goes to WR, Corney to Safety. Guard to Tackle. The list goes on.

Basebore: Quite literally takes so little skill it is almost not even a sport, but just a regular past-time.

Bo Jackson was good, but half the NBA niggas possess more ability.

The mouth guard is for the upper teeth only, you can just about see it if you look closely. Besides, its only his nose that's bleeding.

Let rugby into your life Americans.

I'm sure it's some triathlete nobody has heard of. Nobody playing professional sports can match the pure athleticism of someone who can swim, run and bike large distances.

And he never actually displayed real athletic ability in real life.

Look at Brock Lesnar. He's an actor too. He also won an NCAA heavyweight title in wrestling, the best prize to win in a non-Olympic year, played preseason NFL football, won the UFC heavyweight title and defended it even after almost dying.

And he's pretty talented as an actor also.
