Women's Baseball...Most people don't know that Women kept baseball alive in WW2...In fact if it wasn't for a Hollywood movie, most people wouldn't know it existed, at all. - Those players essentially kept baseball alive through the war.
Would you call them popular?
They contributed to the Baseball the sport - In fact, some major rule changes occurred because of them. They kept the sport alive. Had millions and millions of fans. Baseball was actually in dire straits at the time.
Does that mean they were unpopular compared to Kobe?
Saying that Life didn't contribute to E-Sports as a whole is a lie...
Twitch got it's beginning off of Korean SC2 games, especially Life's...SoS's, etc.
The real issue in this discussion is objectivity vs. subjectivity.
Many of you are saying "This guy isn't popular at all" - Comparative to Kobe Bryant, no...
Comparative to a Rookie on the Laker's, yes.
Life has a following of millions - Is credited with keeping SC2 on the map and got more people into E-Sports in general over the past 5 years than most of you give credit for.
That doesn't make him unpopular in the world of E-Sports or unpopular, period...
Just like most of you not knowing that woman played professional baseball and kept baseball alive during WW2 didn't make them any less popular than they are.
