Recently, GQ Magazine released a list of the “Kings of New York Sports,” ranking the top 10 athletes in the city. To the surprise of many, Aaron Judge, the star outfielder for the New York Yankees, was ranked second on the list, behind only New York Knicks star forward Jalen Brunson. Jalen has been the guiding force of the Knicks this season as they look poised to secure the second round of playoffs. Regardless, Judge, too, is the leader of the Yankees and a popular face among the natives of New York.

Naturally, the fans were not happy and took to social media to express their anguish. They believe that the 2022 MVP awardee, Aaron Judge, certainly deserves the top spot on the list. Ultimately it’s just one opinion among many, and the fans should not take it to heart. Judge has a long career lying ahead of himself to secure some of the top recognitions in sport. For now, the Yankees fan base must support their home team, who looks in trouble after losing the series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jalen Brunson Crowned The King Of Sports In New York

GQ Magazine stunned the people of New York when it named Knicks forward Jalen Brunson the King of Sports in New York. Jalen gained the love of the fans overnight when he helped the Knick barge into the playoff this season.

While some might argue Jalen’s position in the list, there is no denying the fact that he is the main reason behind Knicks’ success in the current NBA season. He recorded an average of 24 points and 6.2 assists in the regular season. Moreover, he carried forward the same momentum in the playoff as well. The Knicks are leading 3-1 in the 7-game first-round playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers and looks poised to advance into the second round.
