The most amazing thing about lee is that he retired at 32, the same age Dorian & Ronnie won their 1st Olympia. He definitely could've won another 4-8 if he wanted to push it.

It is amazing

He won it all, broke records,  and retired at 32. Gaspari was also young, but came up after haney, yet burned out by 1990. Haney still had more to give, but with the arrival of levrone in 92, then flex in 93, etc and of course dorian stepping up a few gears, one wonders how much more haney could step up, he himself said 91 was tough

Then again, labrada and ray went on to compete and finish top 6 in olympia for a while, so who knows, maybe haney had some in reserve

.i spent some time with gaspari in the mid 90s......total a hole by the way, anyhow, he mentioned that lee was not reckless with the gear, and said that he would never make a comeback, due to the fact that the new guys were using more than he wished to use.



Have you shared stories on gaspari before? Lol, everybody seems to say the same thing

lee's back was great but kinda soft when being compared to dorian's.. i think if lee had added more size his back would have become softer and would have lacked some details.. sure no one can be sure but i dont think he could beat dorian in 93 or 95..

Lee had that something "extra" during his Reign, comparing Yesterdays guys Vs Todays guys is a Complete Moot point, you look @ Certain Pictures of Lee @ his best and think whao...Unbelievable, then you compare other shots...not so bye TODAYS standards, IMO Lee was a Great BBing Champion...without doubt one of the best of them all, as someone Correctly pointed out in his post...whatever your Generation was/is....as a general rule of thumb that is your "ideal" as who was the best, mine was the tail end of Lee haneys time and the start of Dorian Yates Reign so naturally i see more Positives the Negatives in those ideals over succeeding Generations, who was the best of them all?...pffff....its all in the eye of the Beholder. below was the standard 27-28 YEARS AGO im sure all the other Top 6 these days look alot better in the same shot Undecided oh hang on thats right they are alot "bigger" now.

Nasser must get his dues, he was very big

Haney may have looked inferior in some poses, but was the better bber. In my opinion, by far, no contest

Have you seen below pic before?
