When I watch videos or read articles about music, television, movies or historical events of the 90's, Michael Jordan and the Bulls almost always certainly comes up as an important piece of that particular time in American history. It seems that this team is extremely culturally relevant in 1990’s America.

Is there another team or athlete in any sport that is as culturally relevant beyond sports, but on a pop culture scale than the Chicago Bulls? I don’t even think Tom Brady and all 7 of his championships comes close.

The New York Yankees in the 1920s and 1930s.

Babe Ruth was a larger than life figure, Jordan before Jordan.

Not in USA but Maradona was iconic at the point some of his fans create a religion.

This isn't so much a "pop" culture example as a societal one but Super Rugby Aupiki is more than simply a rugby tournament. It represents a moment in the progress of women's sport. I have been watching this year's competition. 25 years ago (1998), a women's rugby competition at this level would've been unthinkable.

Was it the Bulls or Michael Jordan who was anointed with his namesake shoe line after winning the NCAA college championship? And then later Dennis Rodman in full court jester role joins in but for any Bulls, not Jordan specific cultural impact, as the rest even Hall of Famer 50 all time greatest player Scottie Pippen were just players.

I am only old enough to remember Ali after the suspension and along with Senator Manny Pacquiao in his community comes close in my limited experience
