If something is unique, can it be more unique or even the most unique? Not according to most authorities. So, when the brainiacs who write for the Yahoo! front page called Joakim Noah “one of the world’s most unique athletes,” were they simply engaging in a little playful hyperbole?
You might be able to consider “most unique” acceptable, but can you accept that Mr. Noah’s sister is alleged to be an even more unique athlete? Because she’s not an athlete, she’s a model.
