    Where's Jonah Lomu? Youngest 'All Black' ever at just 19 years old. He was incredible. He should have had a huge career, but only got 1994-2003, having to retire due to serious kidney disorder. He later had a transplant, but ultimately died in 2015, aged just 40.
    Where's Phillip Hughes? Scored his first representative cricket century at just 12 years old. One of the youngest ever to represent his state (New South Wales) in first class cricket (19 years), called up to the Australian test cricket team a few months shy of 21, and scored his first test century in the second test of that series. Had his career cut short thanks to a cricket ball to the neck causing a vertebral artery dissection. He died just 3 days before his 26th birthday.

    Senna not at the top?!?! Not even in the top list, he was in the honorable list!?! He was easily the biggest lost to any sport ever the way he lost his life for the sport in which he is still considered as the greatest ever by all margins even though his career was cut short in half by an unfortunate accident more than two decades back. You guys are a pathetic American ball suckers. For fucks sake do you even realize there are sports other than the ones you play in USA?!? You Americans have a serious problem with not understanding that there is a rest of the world. Seriously guys. I'm from India, rooting for Senna who was a Brazilian, in a sport called F1 racing which is predominantly European. Thats being global you dumb fucks. It's high time you get your heads out of your own respective asses.

    Jim Brown didn't get injured, but Art Modell didn't want him acting in any more movies. They couldn't come to an agreement. So Brown retired after only 9 seasons. He is one of the best running backs of all time. Also, Yao Ming was a great player. He was an 8 time all star, but some of those years he wasn't even playing, the NBA used to let fans vote for all star starters. They some what changed the voting process now, the fans now count for %50 of the vote. All in all Yao should have been a 3 time all star starter, not 8. He's probably part of the reason why the NBA changed the NBA all star voting process.
