Default Who's your FAVORITE ATHLETE of All-Time?

Think a minute before you post ... please don't just say 'Elway.'

And in case of ties for favorites, THREE IS THE MAX, and not just because mine is a 3-way tie.

Based on athletes who've played only during my lifetime:

1. Nolan Ryan - That dude was bigger than life when I was a kid..complete stud.
2. Bo Jackson - Flash in the pan I know, but damn that dude was gifted.

Michael Jordan. You didn't have to be a bulls fan to know you were watching a once in a lifetime player. I'm lucky I got to watch him play cause I'll never be able to watch another player like him as long as I'm alive. That's huge.

Baseball is Willie Mays
Football was Gale Sayers
Since I don't pay any attention to round ball, I will pick Maris and Mantle's chase to best the Babe's 60 home run record. My money was on Mantle, but Maris got it done. All pre-pumpkin head of course.

1. Allen Iverson - when it came to maximizing the ability your body had and playing at 100% every play of every game, this guy was the man. Not to mention he was lik 6'0" 160 pounds soaking wet and just taking beatings every game. Westbrook reminds me of him every now and then but nobody's allowed to get hit in the NBA these days. Iverson was getting beat up daily.

2. Paul Williams - unfortunately his boxing career was cut short because of a motorcyle accident but athletically he was a freak. Lanky, lean and threw about 100 punches a round. Really fun to watch (unless he didnt see a punch coming (watch Sergio Martinez knock him out...brutal).

3. Barry Bonds - ok, so there are two versions ofo Barry Bonds I like to think of. The first was a switchblade of a player who won Gold Gloves and stole bases. He was truly the best all around baseball player of his era. The Next version was a mammoth hitter who just striped bombs. I don't care if he took steroids ....to watch someone do that to baseballs was fun to watch.

People I saw play and watched

Johnny Unitas
Brooks Robinson
Jack Nicklaus
Arnold Palmer

As I get older, I appreciate them more as individuals than their play on the field.
