God says to His people, "I will lay waste all your idols" (Micah 1:7). I guess that even means those idols that make a living hitting or throwing a ball.
Don't worship people who play sports (or any other human). None are righteous; no not one (Rom. 3).
But, Jesus is worthy of worship. Jesus is 10,000 times more great than the things and people we admire most. Jesus is the greatest treasure of all.
