    Senna is number 1 without any doubt, he is the best of all time in his sport and died while doing said sport. Just that makes in N.1, but Americans do not give a shit about any other sports

    Yao was good but wasn't the best player in his role and if just talking about playing ability then any humanity involvement should be ignored. The basketball player who got an OD makes no sense since he never played a single game in the pros. Bobby Orr still is a hockey god and we all know that. Sandy is regarded as the one of the best. Any player at 30 is at their peak.

    Didn't quite do Mike Bossy justice. Had 50 goals 9 of his 10 NHL seasons (10th was shortened by injury). Only one other player in history had 9 50 goal seasons, Gretzky, and it was over twice as many seasons
    I know it's not a hockey list, but you could almost make a case for Lemieux too. Between the cancer and back pain so bad he couldn't bend over to tie his own skates before some games, and despite never playing his 1000th career game, he's still top 10 all time in NHL points. Imagine if he'd stayed healthy and had a full 20 year career

    The only players in NHL history with higher Points per Game average over their careers are Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Mike Bossy. As a defenceman, he had 6 straight 100 point seasons, including 139 points (102 assists) and 135 points (46 GOALS.. for a defenceman.. and 89 assists). Utterly insane skill and drive.

    Lists like these could have 50 different names on it. I wish people wouldn't overreact by saying: "if X isn't here, I'm unsubbing" or someone complaining that a Canadian RUclip channel has a North American perspective. I'm sure a UK RUclip channel would have a ton of Soccer (football) entries on it.

    I forget her name, but there was a Japanese tennis player who was said to be one of the greats of her generation but ankle issues forced her to retire young before she could get to her full potential. It wasn't all bad for her, she became a world renowned doctor and is as famous today for her feats in the medical field as she was for her tennis potential in her youth.
