When it comes to the public eye, athletes today do not have it easy. As we've seen with stars like Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel or Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, the advent of social media has been an absolute nightmare for the private lives of America's sports heroes. Plenty of former stars—whether in the NBA, NFL, or MLB—love to talk about how much easier the younger guys have it in today's leagues but, at the same time, they never had to deal with getting torn apart in their mentions whenever they had a bad game. How would the superstars of old have held up with a constantly critical presence like Twitter hanging over their heads? It's hard to say, but we can at least speculate on 13 Athletes From the '90s Who Would Have Been Ethered If Twitter Existed. Making the list this time around is Iron Mike Tyson, Ryan Leaf (of course), and even Michael Jordan. Can you think of any other moments that would've created a Twitter firestorm? Let us know in the comments section below.
