Barry Sanders was my favorite.. Have you seen any highlights from Iverson playing football? Quite nasty.

Bo Jackson is the only one I'd consider in one of the big 4.

Other than that I'm sticking with Muhammad Ali.

Garry Kasparov. I know what you're thinking -- Tal, Morphy, and co. were arguably more entertaining. But Kasparov has the strongest mix of entertaining play and offboard drama in the internet era. He's still relevant today due to politics and stuff. Fischer is up there too of course, but I gave the nod to Kasparov because reasons.

Rookie Vince Carter and redshirt freshman Michael Vick is my answer.

Re: Most Entertaining athelete ever

I'm assuming we aren't including pro wrestlers? If we did they would probably take up the top 5 as they have much more freedom to act and speak.

Picked Ali from the list.

Glenn Maxwell > Ali though. And I'm pretty there are others greater still.

The fact that Conor McGregor isn't on the list is an absolute travesty.

Going with Ali and Tiger ... Tiger more frequent and Ali missed his prime and/or part of his career was before TV era ... so Tiger wins with me.

Luv the Fischer vote but it was really only for a month or so wasn't it? But he captured the world stage there like no one else ... I've said before that his forfeit of Game 2 was the most dramatic moment in competition of the 20th C. Was for me ... up there with Ali-Frazier I , Oklahoma/Nebraska "Game of the Century," and Secretariat's Belmont.

Re: Most Entertaining athelete ever

BTW, there was one other boxing match of 20th C that was nearly as dramatic a setup as Ali-Frazier I for drama, imo. Not many agree with me I don't think. I could give hints or make my case but probably make it too easy. Any takers?

Re: Most Entertaining athelete ever

I watch a hell of a lot of soccer but Messi doesn't seem to me to be the most entertaining.

The guy just does the simple stuff better than anyone in the game ever has.

He doesn't usually do the stuff that is mindboggling like zlatan or ronaldinho

He's way more Greg Maddux than he is Randy Johnson or Pedro
