Athletes Who Would Make Worst President

Athletes Who Would Make Worst President
Rob Schumaker- USA Today Sports

Do you ever see larger than life athletes in action and wonder “could they lead our country like they lead their team?”

It’s an interesting thing to think about on what would make someone a successful leader. You think of the famous leaders in sports like Derek Jeter, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and see the control they have on the pulse of their teams at seemingly all times.

Could they do the job that would keep our country from imploding? Probably not, but they aren’t the worst of the potential athletic crop. Think about the worst possible candidates for this. Think about the players in sports that would just abuse the power they were given to mold the country to their liking. Scary thought isn’t it?

Imagine if these players were in control of your lives and you had to abide by whatever they wanted. There are easily players that I could pick out that would absolutely ruin life as we know it, such as O.J. Simpson, Lawrence Taylor and others, but then I thought harder about the current athletes that really would not work out in the oval office.

I thought about today’s hot names in sports that always seem to come up in places for the wrong reasons. Maybe they have a screw loose or maybe an entire tool set loose. These are athletes that would make us beg for an escape to Canada and athletes that would cause us to renounce our citizenship and attempt to separate our states from the rest of the country. These are the worst possible athletes to run the country.

Kevin Garnett

5. Kevin Garnett (Boston Celtics)
USA Today Sports

A very scary president. Garnett would likely have a mandatory day each week called Kevin's Day where his face appears on every channel of every TV, while he reads you a step by step guide to killing a wolf. Garnett would also ban bright colors from the country except for Green.

Ryan Lochte

4. Ryan Lochte
USA Today Sports

Lochte would likely try to make a peace treaty with Antarctica. He would spearhead his presidential campaign by telling the country he would swear to put his name on the eight dollar bill. I'm thinking his vice president would be his mother and his secretary of defense a poster of Transformers.

Titus Young

3. Titus Young
USA Today Sports

Young would likely use the plot of "The Purge" to get people to vote for him. He would also require all tow companies to not have fences in their yards. Young's campaign would probably end when he tried to rob the White House.

Kenny Britt

2. Kenny Britt (Tennessee Titans)
USA Today Sports

Britt would find himself in a new predicament every other day. One day he would be in trouble for using military money to buy a six story tall statue of himself and the next he would attempt to repair his legs using alien technology from area 51. Kenny would be all over healthcare, though, and would offer free cyborg legs to anyone who has suffered an injury while playing sports. The entire country would then break into civil war ending with the plot of Avatar.

Tiger Woods

1. Tiger Woods
USA Today Sports

Tiger would sure be something in the oval office. Woods would require the ability to curse during the state of the union as well as the phone numbers of everyone's wife in America. Woods would also have anyone who asked what nationality he actually is to be locked in a dungeon where he would force them to talk John Daly into sobriety. Positives of Woods presidency would include super white teeth for everyone.

Chad Johnson

USA Today Sports

The former receiver is automatically disqualified because he once renamed himself Ochocinco. Who does that? Any idiot, that's who.

Joba Chamberlain

Joba Chamberlain
USA Today Sports

This MLB pitcher is as sharp as a tack - the side you push with your thumb. Anybody with a nickname as dumb as Joba, is just automatically disqualified from leading this great nation.

9 of 16

Ricky Williams

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

While Williams does seem to be an intelligent individual, the guy can't put down the pipe. The American people need a president that's not high 24/7.

10 of 16

DeSean Jackson

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

Attitude problems, ego issues, Jackson has it all. If he didn't get a bill approved that he wanted to pass, he'd probably go in the corner and pout about it.

11 of 16

John Daly

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

You have to love Daly's lack of caring out there on the golf course, but this guy would make a lousy president. He chain smokes, he drinks and he could probably care less about the well-being of America.

12 of 16

J.R. Smith

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

Where do you even start with this clown? He has trouble making semi-difficult decisions on the basketball court. Could you imagine if Smith had to make a decision that would directly affect the lives of American citizens?

13 of 16

Jay Cutler

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

This guy has one of the worst attitudes in all of pro sports. Piss-poor is probably the most accurate way to describe it. He couldn't be president, because he just simply wouldn't care enough.

14 of 16

Metta World Peace

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

Metta earns points for his name, because we all know this country could use a little more peace, but this guy has a track record a mile long of stupid incidents. If a member of Congress yelled at him during a speech, he'd probably go into the stands and take a swing at him.

15 of 16

Kyle Busch

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

Busch is the most hated driver in NASCAR, and that's saying something. If another politician disagreed with him, he'd invite them to go out back and settle it the old fashioned way.

16 of 16

Dwight Howard

USA Today Sports
USA Today Sports

Howard can't make a decision to save his life. Let's bomb this county. No, let's not. Make up your freaking mind already. This country also deserves someone who's driven to be the best. Howard, is clearly not that guy.
