BRB not everyone has the skill to play football, basketball, or baseball.

99% of everyone can RUN. And he not only does it faster than any human EVER, he's absolutely shattered our understanding of how fast a human is capable of running. Dude is a living science project.

lol @ Bolt please go, he wasnt even relevent till 2008 and hes already fading. Remind me how BOlt is ANY BETTER, IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER, than a person like Phelps? Thats right you can't. Sprinting gets faster each and every decade as men grow bigger faster stronger. We're already 5 inches taller and like 40lb heavier than our great grandfathers. 2-50 years from now there is a 99.999% chance Bolts record gets shattered.

See a pattern in this video? His record will get broken very soon. Most dominant? son.... no.

I understand and follow your logic. And I'm not saying you're wrong, just giving my opinion. But 2-50 years from now there's a chance every record in the NFL, NHL, NBA, etc. will be shattered too. So that is kind of a moot point.

However, the reason I would say Usain Bolt is most dominant is very simple. Not every NFL player can hit a homerun. Not every baseball player can score a goal in hockey. Not every NHL player can swim, etc. See a pattern?

But 99% of every athlete can RUN. Not even just 99% of every athlete, but 99% of every HUMAN BEING can run. And you have a man who does something we basically ALL DO way faster than anyone else has in recorded history. To me, that's dominance in the highest degree. Not just of a skill or a sport like most of the athletes named, but a dominance over mankind.

And again, not saying you're wrong bruh. Just the way I see it.

I don't get that logic. Sprinting is a sport too, it takes practice and genetics and skill in sprinting. I dont get how you can say "Bolt cant play football, but footballers can sprint." that makes no sense. Football players are fashioned to play football, not sprint. Speed+Power+agility. If you put every athlete in the world and have them grow up as runners through childhood, high school, college, and pros, Usain can easily be broken.. He is racing against a tiny niche of athletes. People do not grow up saying "I want to sprint" so they are disadvantaged from the get-go.

Allen Iverson did the exact same thing in 2001 and also single handedly won a game against the undefeated Lakers, with a much worse team (Eric snow, who the worst player on that Cav's team, was the 2nd best player on the 2001 76ers team)

But that said, a Prime Shaq was dominant as fuak!

Shattered maybe. But if you never watched Bonds play, then you missed the point. The guy's records probably wouldnt even be attainable if people actually pitched to him. He probably got 1 real at bat a game, if that, and still managed to hit homeruns. It was like watching a videogame. If the pitcher screwed up and threw the ball anywhere near the heart of the strike zone, he crushed it. They just had to walk him or pitch away from him every single time. He was really the only batter I ever saw, even to this day that you just couldn't pitch to; he would hit a homerun.

I do like the Barry Sanders/Bo Jackson vid. Poor Barry Sanders, stuck on poverty team his whole career.

Jordan, Shaq, Phelps, and Bonds.

No one could stop Jordan and he would take over a game when he wanted, which he managed to do in crunch time.

Shaq was just so physically huge and athletic, a combination that would destroy defenders. And to add insult to injury, he had skills in the post too.

Phelps dominated swimming. Great to watch him own the olympics.

Bonds was just unreal, if they actually pitched to him you felt like he would blast one out of the park.

Anyone who watched prime Shaq knows what I'm talking about... but I'll elaborate.

I've never seen an athlete with as big of a physical advantage over the competition. 7'1, 320 lbs of muscle (before he got fat around 03/04), and athletic as fuq. There hasn't been a specimen like that before or since.

NFL Football- Brady and Manning.
College football- Vince Young
Wrestling- Tommy Rowlands. Kicked Brock Lesnar's ass so bad other MMA fighters were hiring him to train them.
Hockey- Gretzky and Sergei Federov his first couple of years and before the rule changes.

shaq couldn't be stopped in the late 90's early 00's.
federer owns every record/ties every record for mens tennis.
tiger transcended golf like jordan did basketball.
phelps for obvious reasons.

honourable mentions:

kobe was ridiculous during those scoring seasons but the lakers weren't winning. noone could stop him from scoring though but he had scrubs on his team.
lebron has looked incredible the last 2 seasons. even when the ship looked like it was sinking (pacers/spurs series) he looked completely in control. boston game 6 in 2012 was a masterpiece. he's been clutch whenever it's been needed and the results speak for themselves.
messi and cristiano are scoring at a historic pace. they might not leave their footprints on as many PLAYS as zidane did over a game but they affect the scorelines more.
ronaldo in the 2002 world cup was unstoppable.

Pedro Martinez (1997-2003):

His ERAs between 97-03: 1.90, 2.89, 2.07, 1.74, 2.39, 2.26, 2.22

All this happened during the height of the steroid era, while run scoring overall in the league was going through the roof, he put up some of the most obscene numbers in the history of pitching, for a solid 7 seasons. He led the league in ERA in 5 of those 7 years and the only years he did not were his first year in the AL and an injury-shortened season.

In terms of ERA+ (ERA adjusted by the overall league ERA), which is probably the best metric of comparing pitching seasons across different eras of baseball, his seasons between 97-03 rank: 2nd, 9th, 17th, 26th (t), and 34th. So, taking that at face value, in a 7 year span, he had 5 of the best 34 single pitching seasons EVER.

Pedro appears in the top 50 of ERA+ more often than anyone else, including:

Greg Maddux (2)
Walter Johnson (4)
Cy Young (2)
Bob Gibson (1)
Roger Clemens (3)
Randy Johnson (2)
Christy Matthewson (2)

The best year of the bunch is likely 2000, while he was only 18-6, he had a 1.74 ERA, an 0.737 WHIP, and 284 strikeouts and 4 shutouts among 7 complete games. His ERA+ that season of 291 is second only to Tim Keefe, who had a 293 in 1880.

The beginning and end of his career was nothing too special, but his prime has to be up there among the greatest of greats.

Tiger Woods absolutely dominated from 1999-2002 and 2005-2008. Look at his timeline of victories and earnings. Plus, in golf you have to beat the entire field, not just one/a few people at a time, which makes it that much more impressive.

Usain Bolt absolutely crushed the sprinting records, and the 9.59 100M will stand for a LONG time. He was many standard deviations above the normal pace of breaking this record. No one has ever won the 100M and 200M in the olympics back to back before. He is incredible.

Roger Federer lost 25 matches total in 4 years (out of 300+) from 2004-2007 and 13 grand slams or so during that time. No one comes close to that in history

Kelly Slater has won 11 surfing world titles and almost half of the individual events he has ever entered.

When I was in the 7th grade playing jrhigh football we had a kid move from some place near Nebraska to live with his father. It was said that he had become too much trouble for his mother to handle. He was in the 8th grade and about 6'2" 200lbs. Motherfuker had chesthair and and bad ass Magnum PI mustache. He would been a good High School player at damn near school. He was only around for the first three weeks of football season. But he went those three weeks without ever even being tackled. It was like the coming of Christ. Sadly, one day he was gone. He had goin TWO girls at the JrHigh pregnant....
I have no idea what happened to that kid. Most dominate showcase of JrHigh football skills Ive ever seen.

Jordan in the 80's. He was just so much better than everyone else on the court. Just watch a few of the espn classic games and you can see the difference. By the 90's Jordan was still amazing, but the defenders were now able to attempt to cover him.



Agree. MJ was dominant. So was Jerry Rice.

But the best "athlete" I have ever seen is Bo Jackson. I mean to play two sports professionally, two of the hardest sports (arguably) and to be basically an All-Star at both? For the love of god ...

Barry Sanders. Doubt you'll ever see another like him.

Barry Sanders Jr is a college freshman this year I believe, and he runs a lot like his dad. So it's possible that we'll see another RB like him in a few years.

When I was a kid I always thought Terrel Davis was an absolute beast (from 96-98), like he would get 10+ yards on every carry.

oh and MJ.

Also Phelps in 2008 Olympics.

And Floyd Mayweather.

I can't say Tiger/Gretzky because I don't watch golf/hockey.


Edit: AND Bill Goldberg in WCW days

those are huge shoes to fill, i'll be shocked if he turns out to be half as good as his father.

I'd have to go with LeBron as of right now, but I think Julio Jones will have a legitimate argument by the end of his career. Both are physical freaks and posses an outstanding mix of speed, strength, quickness and coordination.

Deion Sanders hands down.


Played offense/defense in the NFL AND played as a legit contributor in the MLB at the same time.

Live: Messi
TV: Jordan and Mayweather. Didn't really watch enough baseball to discuss Bonds(saw his record breaking year).

I bet if roles were reversed and Bonds trained sprinting and Usain had played baseball then Bonds would come much closer to Usains 100/200 times than Usain would come to hitting 73 homers in less like 400 at bats.

Nicknamed "The Great One", he has been called "the greatest hockey player ever"[1] by many sportswriters, players, and the NHL itself. He is the leading point-scorer in NHL history, with more assists than any other player has points, and is the only NHL player to total over 200 points in one season a feat he accomplished four times. In addition, he tallied over 100 points in 16 professional seasons, 14 of them consecutive. At the time of his retirement in 1999, he held 40 regular-season records, 15 playoff records,

To be fair he lost his first fight to Castillo...

I'm glad you know about that fight actually. Most people don't. Floyd was essentially fighting with one hand though due to injury and he still pulled it off on the cards, at least. I agree though, the result was very debatable. Props to Floyd though for giving the only rematch he's ever done and winning easily.

Anderson Silva, in his prime he would make world class fighters look like handicapped women. It was basically just feeding time for the spider cuz you knew no one had any chance against him.
