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
LOL the simple stuff...



Sure he isnt doing all the flashy effective stepovers and stuff

I'm not saying he isn't the best ever

Just saying his flash isn't the most extravagant

Going by the numbers, could it be anyone other than The Rock?

The numbers say he was the most electrifying athlete, not necessarily entertaining

Vick is a good pick. I won plane tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. my senior year of high school and used them to go to Blacksburg and watch Vick. He was amazing and I have never regretted it.

Shaq:


ďItís true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yeah, it is. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind ó what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ĎOh, Columbus discovered America,í but when he got there, there were some fair skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So what does that tell you? Columbus didnít discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this **** is flat to me. Iím just saying, I drive from Florida to California all the time, and itís flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity. Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? Itís not. The world is flat.Ē

I'm going with Barkley. Final answer.

Everything else aside, and there's a lot, just his golf swing propels him to the top 25%.

Roger Federer is basically Tiger Woods but in a way more exciting sport.

Would go with Nadal in his showdowns with Fed.

Favorite local hero DIRK but he's not out there posterizing people.

You're a damn kid. I saw him play in college and think he was more entertaining then when his dad would let him do whatever he wanted. In this video you have to endure a bunch of long-range shots to get to the passing and defense starting a fast break to really appreciate his play. So far ahead of his time ...
