G.O.A.T.: pick your greatest athlete of all time

With Tigerís Masters win today, Twatter is asking if heís the greatest athlete ever. This poll asks: name you greatest athlete youíve seen. (So Jim Brown, Babe Ruth, Jesse Owens etc all off the table)

Use whatever criteria you wish. Can only pick one.

The poll asks for the greatest athlete of all time, not dominance in 1 sport. Had Bo not been injured, he would have been a shoo-in to the baseball HOF and probably Canton. We all saw MJ try to play 2 sports, what happened there? Can you see Tyson on a golf course? How about Tiger hitting a 100 MPH fastball with the crowd noise? He'd melt down in a heartbeat.

William Felton Russell (born February 12, 1934) is an American retired professional basketball player who played center for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1956 to 1969. A five-time NBA Most Valuable Player and a twelve-time All-Star, he was the centerpiece of the Celtics dynasty that won eleven NBA championships during his thirteen-year career. Russell and Henri Richard of the National Hockey League are tied for the record of the most championships won by an athlete in a North American sports league.

(And he did this at a time when blacks were second class citizens, especially in the northeast.)
I had almost forgotten Bill Russell; Shame on me. I grew up watching the old Boston Celtics under coach Red Auerbach and Russell's battles with Wilt Chamberlain were nothing short of legendary. Thanks for the flashback!

Does any current player has guts to repeat it?

6) Double Triple Double

In 1968, Wilt Chamberlian achieved a unique feat when he put up 22 points, 25 rebounds and 21 assists in game and became the first player to hit double triple double. Since then, no one has been able to achieve this feat again.

5) 30+ points and 20+ rebounds in rookie season



Bo Jackson is 2nd on this short list!

To be fair Westbrook just had a double triple double

While I've never seen Thorpe or Jim Brown play football.

Bo Jackson was the greatest athlete my eyes ever witnessed.

Freak of nature.........super hero........you name it. He could do things no other human could do.

Bo Jackson, but there was a great argument for Wilt earlier so I would consider him as well.

I just define "athlete" as someone who is so gifted that they could play any sport and excel. I can't think of a better example of that than Bo Jackson.

The poll asked you to define your own criteria. Whatever you think is right.
