Top 10 Boston Sports Athletes

A rich history in boston, here are there greatest athletes.

The Top Ten

1 Tom Brady Tom Brady more.

He was the best before he got hurt. - waterboy51

GOAT... And he was not expected to be what he is... 199 draft pick, to the number one in the world, it's unheard of... He IS BOSTON!

This isn't really a contest, Brady has won 5 Super Bowls and broken more records than any other quarterback ever

Tom Brady is good but I think he is probably tied with Doug flutie at the most

2 Bill Russell Bill Russell

biggest champion for the greatest dynasty ever

Won like 11 rings out 13 years? - Cygnus2II2

Hello! 11 Championships in 13 years!
The end! No one is close to William Felton Russell!

3 Ted Williams

first real boston sports hero for their most popular team

Home run in his last at-bat. he batted left and threw right..344 average for a slugger over his career. 521 home runs. all-century team. first ballot hall of famer. 19 time all-star selection. 'enough said

4 Bobby Orr Bobby Orr Robert Gordon Orr is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player, widely acknowledged as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.

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 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.
