I can't believe anyone could even compare Lebron to Jordon. Jordan is by far the best basketball player to ever grace the sport.

Secondly, if we are talking racing... it definitely is a sport and those athletes are put under much, much more physical and mental exertion than the majority of professional athletes. I definitely second the post from Bud +1

Michael Schumacher should have been on that list as well.

On that list it would have to be Jordan or Gretzky. (I have to give massive props to BO, because BO knows everything)

R.I.P. PRIDE FC

Fedor-Shogun-Overeem-Cro Cop-Silva-Gomi-Henderson-Jackson

2014 NPFFL

Jon Jones . Travis Browne . Demian Maia. Cain Velasquez. Fabricio Werdum

Your reading comprehension needs a bit of work, pal.

Is this the "greatest player of all time" poll? Or is it the "greatest athlete of all time"?

Jordan was a better player but he is not a better pure athlete.

Nobody cares about these Basketball NBA games or sprinters. What about other amazing MMA fighters like GSP? What about Fedor Emeilenko? Mirko Crop Cop? Why Anderson Silva?

Fun fact. All that bullshit about race being skin deep is just PC bull. African genes are very helpful athletically speaking.

I may be wrong, but I think it has something to do with the idiocy of the quoted post.

El Bresko, there was nothing malicious or idiotic about my post. I simply stated that there are faar superior mma fighters that are more athletic and more nimble than Anderson Silva. How is GSP not more athletic and superior to Anderson Silva? Who is the gymnast? Who can run as fast as an olympic sprinter? Who is super strong? GSP is. Fedor as well.
