6Bobby Orr

To the last comment - Right ON! Orr was the most elegant athlete I have ever seen. I would also rank Ali number 2... If Orr had had healthy knees - damaged by opposing players targeting him (something Wayne Gretzky never had to worry about) he would have many more records. If you put only he and Gretzky on the ice and dropped the puck Gretzky wouldn't be able to touch it... Bobby Orr was poetry in motion... Jordan or anyone else you care to name is not even close - not in my lifetime... as Milt Schmidt said if ever there comes along a better player than Bobby Orr I hope I'm alive to see it

Best ever..in ANY sport..there has never been a player who was so clearly the GOAT... And he played on one leg much of his career... On two good knees he would have done who knows what... Sheer poetry... Ali would get my number 2 vote for all sports

Th greatest hockey player of all time. Revolutionized the game of hockey

Are you kidding? Number 6. Best athlete in any city.
