As the ESPN 30 for 30 on Bo Jackson premieres tonight (12/8) at 9pm EST. who do you guys think is/ was the best athlete? It's a bit hard to say bc there are some old timers we didn't get to see (other than maybe AMZ (grey bush) or BigT ) but always enjoy debating this bc it's hard to pin point.
Here's my top 5, no particular order
*deion sanders gets an honorable mention

Anybody else watch that documentary and think to yourself that he could have been a world class bodybuilder, too? Hard to say definitively with muscle belly shape and extreme conditioning requirement, but the man was lean and had pecs, delts, and wheels FOR DAYS.
Yeahhh, this is true.
Went 13 years without losing in international competition and 6 years without even surrendering a point. Amassed 3 gold medals at 3 Olympiad during this stretch.
Hell yeah bro. Dudes a freakOriginally Posted by Distilled Water
Gotta throw in Muhammad Ali and Jerry Rice in the mix. Adrian Peterson might end up on the list when it's said and done. Also, just imagine how much better Bo would've been at football or baseball if he dedicated himself to just one sport? I remember the Raiders were so deflated after his injury that they lost to the Bills 51-3 in the AFC Championship game the following week. Marcus Allen was no Bo Jackson.
Bo Jackson's the man.
Deion only player to play in both Super Bowl and World Series, that has to count for something. Was he the last two sport athlete (professional)?
OBSESSED is a word the LAZY use to describe the DEDICATED.

This. Best at your sport and best athlete are 2 different things. That wrestler someone said is just that...the best wrestler. Lebron is not only the best bballer but could own in so many other sports. Guy is a freakOriginally Posted by R1balla
The amount of disrespect that wrestling has been getting lately is ridiculous. Anyone that has gone through even just HS level knows how competitive it is and the rigors of constantly having to make weight and still train.
In no other sport has an athlete displayed the kind of dominance that Karelin showed especially in a sport as competitive as wrestling where it's impressive to just make it multiple Olympiad let alone win the gold multiple times.
Bo Jackson. Guy was legit at two professional sports. Strong and fast
