    Well, you first need to understand the difference between a celebrity and an athlete. A celebrity is someone that is famous for something. An athlete is someone who is good at sports and physical activities. That is it.

    There are athletes that aren't popular and there are celebrities that aren't athletes. Being an athlete doesn't mean you're a celebrity.

    As for the question, I'll say that a number of athletes are considered celebrities.

    Tiger Woods, Tom Brady, Lebron James, Kevin Durant 

    are all celebrities.  

    Lesser player may be seen as celebrities in their local area

    even if they are not well-known elsewhere.
