Are you asking for the past 5 years or the entire 20th century as well? haney, arnold, ronnie, yates all good choices for bodybuilders if measuring by shere title wins. Toss up really. But if you're asking about best athlete of the 21st century, you have the two covered. Lance and Bonds. My vote for the 20th century would be ....

Bingo. The greatest..period. Anyone that never worked out and could run a 4.15 at 235lbs and do all of the freaky **** he did is just amazing.Originally Posted by EEmain

This should be moved to the Sports Section
I do consider bodybuilding to be a sport, but I don't consider bodybuilders to be athletes...does that any make sense?
Its tough..I'll list by sport (current athletes)
Baseball- Bonds,Arod or Tejada
Basketball- Shaq or Lebron
Football- Brady or Ray Lewis

if just for the past 5 years i would have to vote for either Bonds or Pujols (from all star break to all star break Pujols led the NL in hr's rbis and ba)
i think lance armstrong deserves some credit as does michael schumacher (if you consider him an athlete)

Definitely the best pure athlete when it came to athletic ability. His ability would be freakish by today's standards. Best athlete ever is Joe Montana but I'm biasedOriginally Posted by EEmain
BTW, I wouldn't really compare athletes who play on team sports vs. athletes who play individual sports. Individual sport athletes only have themselves to rely on where team sport athletes may have to carry a bunch of other teammates and take on a bigger leadership role.

Lance, Shaq, Jordan, and Bo Jackson. Those are irreplaceable.
However, I am only 21 and don't really know too much about sports wayyyy back in the day.

lance, bonds, pujols, lebron, shaq, p.manning, ladainian tomlinson, jamal lewis I really can't name em all without forgetting a ton....

really too much criteria to pick a select group. If were talking athletic ability only you'd include people like bo knows hip problems, neon dickhead sanders, barry sanders, jim thorpe, carl lewis, randy moss, micheal jordan, lebron etc etc

Pudz (Mariuz Pudzianowski - World's strongest man 3 consecutive years)
Not your typical athelete, but the best for me!
