    All I know is this; You may be rightfully penalize players who play in individual sports, as they never had to deal with teammates affecting the win, but the most dominant athletes I've seen were Woods, Bolt, and Phelps.

    Where the hell is cristiano ronaldo??He should be there instead of pele i believe....messi and maradona deserve to be there but pele ya i know this is gonna get a lot of negative thoughts but he played entire career at santos and still had lesser number of goals than both ronaldo and messi at the same age and he played for probably the greatest brazilian side ever and yet scored fewer goals than cr7....Maradona drove a mediocre napoli to top and messi is simply magical and ronaldo is RONALDO

    Absolutely bad list. You cant go by fan favorites or personal feelings. ESPN says this.
    1. Sugar Ray Robinson
    Welterweight, middleweight
    Ring career: 1940-65 Record: 175-19-6-2 (109 KOs)
    Career notes: Won world welterweight title in December 1946, and defended it four times before stepping up in weight and winning, in 1951, first of five stints as middleweight champ. … Attempted to win light heavyweight title from Joey Maxim in 1952, but was stopped in the 14th round. … Born Walker Smith in Ailey, Ga. … Was the most complete boxer yet to grace the squared circle. … Lost just one of first 123 fights, to Jake LaMotta, a defeat avenged five times in a classic ring rivalry. … A near-perfect pugilist at welterweight, was less dominant at middleweight, but was still able to win the title five times, including three times after he had retired for two and a half years. … Only stoppage defeat was when challenging Maxim for light heavyweight crown, and then was leading on points until overcome by heat so extreme that it had forced the replacement of the referee in the 10th.

    okey it might be because i am from sweden but surely Ingemar Stenmark deserves to be here, they had to change the rules so others could even compete with him, he is the most dominant sportsman ever, he won over 85 times, crushing everything, maybe not number 1 even if i think he deserves it but he has to be here, i mean they changed the rules so others could stand a chance

    Let me just end this Sachin and Don Bradman comparison
    Sachin Tendulkar is heads and
    shoulders ahead of Don Bradman.
    Just stating few of the numerous facts to support it.
    - Sachin has played with more than 8 test playing nations, whereas bradman played mostly against England and at times against south africa.
    - In Bradman days LBW was not out, even if ball has pitched outside off stump. Whereas in Sachins era it was not.
    - In Sachin's era cricket was globalized and viewers were huge, which lead to more knowledge, comments and opposition team can easily analyse strong and weak points of a particular player.
    - These important factors can lead to adding pressure over player at times.
    - Print and television media pressure is an additional burden, even before each and every game.
    - Pressure on Sachin for high profile games + expectations of whole nation. I will better not comment.
    - Sachin has inspired millions of aspiring cricketers to play cricket + inspire Indians in all age living in India/abroad to be humble and taught them how to digest their success and remain levelheaded.
    -Sachin has played against the greatest fast bowlers of all time. Likes of Imran, Waqar, Wasim, McDermott, Hughes, Whitney, McGrath, Lee, Gillespie, Ambrose, Walsh, Bishop, Donald, Pollock, Shoaib Akhtar, Shaun Tait, Morkel, Steyn, Hadlee, Gough, Anderson and he had tasted lot of success against each of these bowlers in their own den. Just imagine does any other batsmen has faced any such bowlers in their illustrious career? Answer is No.
    -Sachin has murdered spinners like warne, Saqlain, Hogg, McGill,Qadir, at times Murali.
    -Sachin is all weather batsman. Who has been compared with Richards, Gavaskar, Lara, Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, Inzamam and now with Virat Kohli too. Only few batsman has got such larger than life comparisions.
    Summary- Sachin Tendulkar is light-years ahead of Don Bradman and I'm not even exaggerating.Not only Indians but the whole cricket community treats him as God.There has never been an athlete who's dominated a sport the way Tendulkar dominated cricket.

    pele is simply unmatched and its confusing how gretzky is #1
    pele:added a new style to the most popular sport of all time AND WON 3 WORLD CUPS!!!!!(and get this,he was the first ever teen in soccer/european football to win a world cup, following 2 consecutive world cups tied to this world cup),AND SOMEHOW SCORED 1,283 GOALS IN HIS CAREER
    gretzky:great hockey scorer
    won a few stanley cups
    got a ton of MVP awards
    both are mind blowing,but my opinion being: pele-10/10 gretzky-8.5/10

    When u will consider CRICKET as a sport...(mentioning in wild card was ssshitt).
    Plz go throug the stats on Wikipedia nd u'll know that DON BRADMAN is the greatest sportsman, and his counterparts of other sports are waaay behind him.
    Football is loved, supported, nurtured all over the world hence its the no.1 sport all over the 200+countries
    CRICKET IS ONLY SUPPORTED BY MAINLY INDIA AND OTHER COMPETENT COUNTRIES (total of 10 test playing nations but there r 100 nations playing but aren't worth playing in real sense)

    This is an interesting list. They did a good job picking on most of the sports. Hard to argue against Nicklaus, Ruth, Gretzky, or Pele. Now that Brady has 5 Super Bowl titles he has to go to #1 for American football. But the one that is totally wrong is basketball. You can make a strong argument that Jordan is the "best" player of all time, but he's no where near the "most dominant". The stats show that Chamberlain was definitely most dominant in basketball and maybe most dominant in any sport.
