Was Stephen Hawking like the Lebron James of Physics ?

Completely overrated and had no business being compared to the GOAT (Einstein/Jordan)

    Hawking made more significant contributions in his field than most scientists get to do but in terms of physicists' top physicists, he wouldn't be in the top 10 for the 20th century. He became a star due to a popular book and of course his health issues - which alone make him role model. If he hadn't had a best selling popular book and motor neurone disease and had the same academic career, he would have been a way more than average successful scientist but he would be unknown to the general public.

    Well, LeBron has four rings, so maybe that makes Hawking more like Reggie Miller.
