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 56V 1 Comment
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.V 2 Comments
Even better that Kobe. If only he has better attitude and dedication towards the game including PRACTICE he could have stayed in the league longer and dominating.
iverson guys no one?
come on he was really a great player with an even greater heart
One of the best scorers and little we have in the nba

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?
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!V 3 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
Because stone cold said so
If you really know anything about athletic ability. Ashton is the hands down winner.
DECATHLON IS THE MOST GRUELING EVENT WHEN IT COMES TO ATHLETICS AND THE WINNER IS THE GREATEST ATHLETE IN THE WORLD!
This is sad :(

He won the Sprint Cup 5 consecutive championships from 2006-2010. He is the 2006 Daytona 500 Champion he also has 57 cup wins.
5 championships in a row richard petty dale sr couldn't do it he should be in the top 10 at least
Brilliant allrounder. wheres ian Botham?
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!
No other player can play like him
Hockey ka jadugar, the magician of hockey, even Hitler was his fan...
He was one man army
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 - BillCipherV 1 Comment
He is a kind of huge, strong and cute guy
Has to be rated as the greatest tennis player that ever lived due to his record spanning both the amateur and professional eras. He was also the first athlete to earn a Million dollars. His most outstanding feat among a list of many is making two grand slams in two eras, that in itself is insupassable. Rocket Rod you're the man of tennis. As for the greatest athlete of all time then you can't go past Jim Thorpe. To even contemplate anyone else shows a complete lack of understanding of the task set.
