Also, greatest athlete (in this case) doesn't mean most athletic.

It clearly means who is the greatest in the field of athleticism. Phone Post

LOL at Gretzky winning it in a sport that's only played on a world class level in the US....Pele is way ahead of him just due to the size of the talent pool....Messi should also be on that list ahead of most Phone Post

Gretzky is from Canada and played in Canada for most of his career. Ice Hockey is played at a world class level in many more countries than the US and most of the top talent is not from the US.

Well even more so if it was Canada, who apart from hockey are not competitive in any other sport....no one is denying he was an amazing hockey player but on a list of GOAT's he is nowhere near, no hockey or baseball player is Phone Post

Jordan seems to be getting a lot of support, but I assume many don't remember his short stint at trying to play baseball.

Bo Jackson all day. Guy was a freak and excelled in two sports.

fitch n prey -  How is woods an athlete
I know his one of the best golfers ever but athlete I doubt Phone Post

Go walk 18 holes, and play, then first off. Tell us how good you did, and then tell us how you feel physically. Do that four days a week, and keep they physique he has.

The dude is a better athlete than you ever will be!


I voted for him over Jordan btw.

Could hit with power, and throw a baseball better than anyone in MLB at the time.

Bo Jackson and Micheal Jordan both played Baseball.

Anderson is easily the MMA GOAT but he doesnt deserve to be on the list, no one in MMA does. Maybe Jones if he wins the HW belt and dominates.

Voted for him anyway.

What a stupid fucking to say. Pull your head out of your ass.
Really? Well where is Phil Taylor in the poll then? He has won 16 world titles in darts, that's a minority sport, he should be in!

Hockey players don't belong in these mind of polls Phone Post

Not sure what your deal is with hockey, but it is a very widespread international and athletic sport that is very popular. It has been in the Olympics for almost 100 years. In the NHL there is a comparable amount of athletes as most other popular sports leagues and the average pay is comparable to the top sports leagues, meaning it must be popular enough to pay those athletes and to support the international competitions.

If Bo had a long career he would probably be the biggest name on the list.

As it stands, he's probably the best athlete.

However these things are just glorified popularity contests and Jordan should take it. (Even though I think he would deserve it because he's up there.) Phone Post

sports is all about who's the toughest anyway, if you boil it all down, its about who'd win in a fight right? if you boil being the best in sports down, as a man, it all comes down to who would win in a straight up fight. so clearly the winner should be federer. ..sorry that was stupid.

Jordan...nobody cares about hockey and black people don't even play it...Basketball is a sport played in every high school in the country...it is one of the big 3 sports and Jordan was by far the greatest.

I thought the general consensus was that GSP was the most athletic guy in the sport. Fucking ESPN. Phone Post
