    Most talented athlete ever?

    What athlete was the greatest physical specimen or was the most physically gifted?

    I would say wilt chamberlain is up there so is shaq and lebron but i want input for other sports.

    LeBron. 6'9 250 pounds. Moves like a point guard, with the strength of a center. Man is a monster

    For other sports, Usain Bolt

    For American Football: Deion Sanders (speed and defensive prowess), JJ Watt (he can do it all and he's a defensive lineman), and maybe Calvin Johnson (pure athleticism with his blend of speed and jumping).

    Michael Phelps for swimming as well

    Wilt Chamberlain just seemed like a complete freak tbh. To be that size but have that strength and speed, its insane.

    You put Deion on the court with them, he'd get destroyed. His talents just aren't suited for the NBA, especially driving in the paint with those guys. He was an absolute monster at CB, with his ball hawking and speed. The term "shutdown" corner was coined by his playmaking abilities.

    Calvin's too short to compete physically with those guys as well as JJ but the latter is an absolute monster. He's probably stronger than any of them (probably bar Shaq/Wilt but idk). But for a man his size (not height but bulk), he's surprisingly fast/agile, can jump (He has a five foot box jump with a 37 inch vertical, putting him higher than Shaq's 32 inch) as well as catch/intercept passes.

    Michael Jordon Dunked it from like 10+ feet away.

    When Jordan did the Air Jordan dunk, he had a foot on the line. What makes that dunk truly impressive was the pump he did before dunking the ball. However the only person(that I know of at least) to dunk from the freethrow line cleanly was Serge Ibaka.

    Yea, the guy who played baseball and football. There was Deion Sanders aswell

    It takes tremendous talent and skill to play two sports professionally, but I'm not sure if he excelled at either of them. Did he?

  15. #15
    He made a pretty good impact on both professionally, although he only played 3 years in the NFL because of a hip injury but then became known as the only guy to play in MLB with a hip replacement. He was a top HB and baseball player in college, iirc got drafted in the first round of both sports. Guy ran a 4.12 sec 40 yard dash which is like the fastest of all time for NFL and supposedly ran a 9.54 100m (10.39 officially in college though).

    Yeah, Sena was 4.2 and Panther was 4.1. Funny thing, Panther said many people in the NFL could run as fast as him but I've only seen like, 2-3 who've broke 4.2 secs.
