Who is your favorite PBA Bowler of all time?

Mine would be Earl Anthony. His focus and concentration were phenomenal, and he had such control over his physicality.  My brothers and me loved to watch him growing up.

Mr.Dick Weber

Kind of surprised no one had mentioned Don Carter, the original and first sports millionaire.

No one, not anyone was better under pressure than Mr. Bowling. Until he retired, Dick Weber was just 2nd best.

I have heard he really got screwed due to bowling politics (ugh) which might be some of why he is under appreciated.

Every major change in environment ended some careers.  Shellac to lacquer hurt the old full roller types like Ned Day whi dominated prior to the 50's when lacquer became the primary lane finish.  Urethane lane finish, and urethane ballsended the careers of the great Strokers of the late 60's like Stefanich, Hudson, Neff.  Resin probably didn't end any more careers than the other major changes.  Resin hurt the cup wristed slow hookers if they couldn't learn how to generate ball speed.
