The GOAT

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.

He Should be higher

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..

The strongest man alive!
better than kobe and michael jordan combined.
In my opinion the strongest most funny basketball player that ever lived!

She is the second greater Olympian after Phelps.

186 Johan Cruyff Johan Cruyff

Better than Pele, Maradona, Messi, Ronaldo. never won a World Cup, true, but did not participate in 1978 because of threats at his family...

He looks like an Indian, but does not play like one.

Best European football player

The best in soccer with Pele

187 Mark Spitz Mark Spitz Mark Andrew Spitz is an American former competitive swimmer, nine-time Olympic champion, and former world record-holder in seven events.

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.

Very underrated.

The best

192 Nadia Comaneci Nadia Comaneci

Nadia Comaneci at age 15 years taught to all what does means perfection in gymnastics. She showed to all that the scoreboards must be modified to enroll her qualifications.

Honestly, when I saw that she wasn't in the top three I was like, "What! " And then there she is. So looow... Come on! The stupid cheater Tom Brady is WELL above her. I don't understand you guys. Come on! She reached PERFECTION! It blows my mind.

The first perfect 10. - Cheftobe

Still a legend!

194 Albert Pujols

He is easily the greatest baseball player the cardinals has ever had and the best baseball player in the world and my mom thinks he is hot! - cards5fan

Easily the greatest baseball player ever my mom thinks he is hot!

195 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

196 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry

Crazy assists, shots, layups, and more! Curry is way better than Lebron and Kobe COMBINED. He has worked hard, I'm surprised he's not in the top tens with his talent.

He is way more better than Lebron James because he can shoot 3s better and his arch is amazing! He has a way, Lebron thinks but he doesn't.. Stephan is the new Jordan!

He is the face of the NBA. He breaks his own records every year.

Curry's not the best athlete of all time even with his talent. but he is definitely the best 3pt shooter of all time and my favourite player. - Antetokounmpo
