143 Deacon Jones Deacon Jones David D. "Deacon" Jones was an American football defensive end in the National Football League for the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, and the Washington Redskins.

He invented the sack, and for a four year stretch averaged 22 sacks in a 14 game season.

I think deacon should be more like 56

144 Barry Bonds Barry Bonds

Should be #1 on list. He is the best, most dominant athlete in team sports history! People let their hate impair their judgement. He was definitely more dominant than Jordan. The only athlete in team sports you could argue was better than Barry is Gretzky. This has to be the worst "Greatest" list I have ever seen!

Greatest athlete that most of my generation will ever see. What he does with a baseball bat is uncomparable to that of others. Not to mention he is a 8 time gold glover

Across the board Barry was great an athlete as anyone at anytime in any sport!

Best ever steroid induced athlete ever - counts for something.

Neymar is great. He is an electrifying play-maker with superior skills, who gains and maintains possession, engineers goals and makes great plays for his team. Very exciting to watch.

Why is neymar 170?

The king

148 Tim Tebow Tim Tebow Timothy Richard Tebow is an American professional baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization and a former professional American football player in the National Football League.

I met him and I'm 13 right now I met him when I was 4 or 5 and I had a cast because I broke my arm an he signed it (when he played for the gators) and I got a hug from him and he aid it was ok but the security guard made me get away and unfortunately I had to throw it away because it was smelly but memorie last forever and yes maybe he isn't good in the NFL as he was in college but he will always be my role model

This is man is absolutely horrible. He is only in the minors and no nfl team wants him.

Tim Tebow is the place where faith and sports collide and merge,... INCREDIBLE!

Heisman trophy winner. NFL Quarterback. MLB slugger! Go Tim!

RC is truly a great athlete and would excel in many disciplines that are fitness and finesse oriented but I feel the sport itself, despite it's documented difficulty, hinders his ranking. I just put in for Jeff Ward, RC's original mentor, who's a FOUR sport success and two sport Hall of Famer. - MJRydsFast

Statistically the best athlete of all time. Who else has won every single championship they've ever competed in? NOBODY in my knowledge! I know he didn't win every supercross championship, but he did win every single outdoor championship that he entered.

The greatest motocrosser of all time. The toughest man in one of the worlds most demanding sports.

150 Ole Einar Bjørndalen

A Norwegian professional biathlete and cross-country skiing. He is often regarded as one of the greatest athletes of all time. To become the first ever biathlete to win a cross-country competition. He is also the only biathlete who has won every event during the same Winter Olympic Games (four gold medals). He achieved this feat at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics, becoming the most successful athlete there. This makes him one of only three Olympians to win four gold medals during the same Winter Games.

115 World Cup race wins, including 6 at the Olympics. Won 6 World Cup seasons, most in a heated 3-way battle. In one of the least predictable sports he's been on podium in over half of all his races. Been winning for 16 years and still going.

154 Andrew Flintoff

Brilliant allrounder. wheres ian Botham?

155 Dennis Rodman Dennis Rodman
156 Danny Welbeck

By far the most underrated footballer of all time. Unbelievable physique, touch and composure. Has been criminally under appreciated his whole career so far, but in ten years time it'll be obvious he's an all time great. Second only to Lineker and Defoe in terms of English Strikers!

159 Luis Suarez Luis Suarez Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.
160 Hakeem Olajuwon Hakeem Olajuwon Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon, formerly known as Akeem Olajuwon, is a Nigerian-American retired professional basketball player.

Are you kidding me?! Look at some of these people on this list! Getting 100 steals and 100 blocks in a season is so crazy cause most gaurds aren't gonna block many shots and most big men aren't quick enough to get many steals. Jordan did it 2 times and Patrick Ewing did it twice also. Hakeem did it 12 times! And he's the only player to have recorded over 200 blocks and steals in a single season. That big man was powerful, skillful, and quick like a cat. Not bad for a soccer player! Ha!

He won his 2 championships in the 'Jordan era', so you could say that he is the second best only to Jordan - BillCipher
