184 Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.

Gave the lakers numerous amounts of championships... Couldn't shoot a free throw to save his life hack-a-shaq laugh out loud. No but seriously top 10 all time basketball players and top 25 all time athletes.

Don't know the kid, but he sounds like a good athlete. I'm a girl, so I dunno much about sports but I know him. He is a good athlete(according to 72 people I surveyed). So yeah. 'enough said. He deserves to be in top 10. There is something seriously WRONG with this list..

193 Dave Winfield

Agreed. "Athlete" of the century. I'll second that and toss in the name Dave Winfield as a close second. Don't laugh or immediately think I'm nuts... Look it up and you'll see the resemblances I'm referring to. Dave just "chose" not to try to do all he was capable of and focused on baseball, which was arguably the weakest of his talents but the highest paying opportunity at the time. Tough choice given he was drafted into the NBA, NFL, MLB, the insanely popular at the time but now defunct ABA (the American Basketball Association), and also now defunct WHA (World Hockey Association), a narrow loser in terms of existence to the NHL (mostly poor marketing in a not so popular sport outside of the northern states for a black guy). Upon his graduation and shortly after the preeminent outfielder PITCHED the Minnesota Golden Gophers to a national collegiate world series championship and of course was named the MVP of the series as said pitcher he chose MLB. By the way, he ...more

Please see my previous comment added to the Jim Thorpe statements at I think #7. We're not always focused on ACTUAL accomplishment here and the list isn't titled "most popular athlete of all time". Barry Sanders chose to move back to Wichita and live the "good" life rather than continue losing, however that doesn't erase his athleticism up to that point and definitely can't abolish from the discussion the degree to which Emmit Smith would be an afterthought in the career rushing yards record discussion had the seeminly always healthy Sanders played another five to seven years if he so chose to. When Michael Jordan took some time off, that didn't make him any less of an athlete. Just because Winfield "chose" baseball didn't make him any less of a superb basketball or football talent and didn't subtract that atheleticism in those areas from his being. If you need to enlighten yourself further in these reflections just keep in mind that Babe Ruth was likely the best pithcher in all ...more

194 James J. Braddock

Demonstrates every aspect of the American dream. He was a man of tenacity, ability, integrity, and hard work. He cared for his family, and his drive to compete was out of interest for his family.

195 Reinhold Messner

First man to climb all 14 of the world's 8,000+ meter peaks. First man to both summit Everest solo, and without oxygen. Third person to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. Crossed Greenland, Antarctica, the Gobi desert, and skied to the North Pole. Climbed his first mountain at age 4. Since rock-climbing is the second most athletic sport according to ESPN, Messner takes the cake.

he should be number one...no one else could even come close to his feats...he is a living siper hero

196 Patrick Roy

All-Time Leader in Goals by a tender, Conn Smythe awards, Stanley Cups, MVPs, and he was on the team that won the Cup their first year as a team......Hockey Great

he's a machine. I laugh at some people who think they know football(soccer) ronaldinho the best you make me laugh and freddy adu wouldn't make the top 100000 - sss866

You tell me someone who has more mental and physical strength not to mention fearlessness and I'd be very impressed.

He swam the length of the Danube, the Mississippi, the Yangtze, and the Amazon, breaking the Guinness record for longest swim each time. No one else has accomplished anything close to this.

200 Lennox Lewis

He's big, he's black and he's bad. So whos better, Muhammad ali, no way.
