He is really good and I love him but Steph Curry is probably better. No offense. But Dame Rocks

226Bart Starr

First quarterback to win a super bowl and two time mvp

227Mark Spitz

In the 1972 Summer Olympics Mark Spitz won seven gold medals in swimming and set seven new world records. A feat only surpassed by Michael Phelps in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

He dominated men's swimming in the late 60's and early 70's in ways never seen before. I believe that he was listed the Guinness Book of World Records on several occasions.
