I would have to go with Wayne Gretzky. I don’t think any one individual dominated a team sport for as long as he did.
This is a tough question. But I am gonna go with Ali. Because he was willing to give up EVERYTHING, to take a stand for what he believed in. When we think about the money, the fame, the titles and the belts he was willing to forfeit by standing his ground against the powers that be, that takes more strength than you will ever know. Not to mention in the end he got it all back!!!
Jim Thorpe played RB, DB, K and P on one of the best college football teams ever. In track he had world-class speed at every distance from 100yds through the mile, including hurdles. He was tops in all the field events and, not just won, but dominated the first (modern)Olympics decathalon and pentathalon. He played pro baseball, football and basketball and once hit homeruns into 3 different states in the same baseball game. He is a member of the College Football HoF, Pro Football HoF, and Track and Field HoF.
Fedor Emelianenko…unbeaten for 10 years and most well rounded. His run continues today.
For sure Michael Jordan. Although I like Ali, as a baller, it is unprecedented to win a few championships leave the game ad comeback to win a few more. Did I mention this man is retired and his shoes/brand are still the hottest things in the game?
The most dominate players to me, in my opinion, is Venus and Serena Williams, Tiger Woods, Donovan McNab, Kobe Bryant, LaBron James, Superman (lol) you know who…Michael Vick, and Terrell Owens to name a few.
