Not that LeBron isn't freakishly athletic or anything but I don't think he's in the top 10. You can't compare him to the likes of Mandarich or Herschel Walker. Mandarich was almost 60 lbs heavier than LeBron and has similar speed and vertical!

Such a prestigious list. I love how a steroid user/huge bust is on the list.

I'd say Lebron belongs on that list, for sure.

I don't know enough about non Big-4 sports, such as wrestling, Olympic sports etc...but that looks pretty solid to me.

It is funny that Mandarich is on that list, but he was an absolute freak.

while lebron might not be the most athletic out of that list, that list doesn't account for his height. I'm pretty sure when people talk about Lebron's freak athleticism, it has to do with how athletic he is for his height.

There are faster players, players that can jump higher, taller, and stronger players. There is no one in the sport with his combination of all of the above.

So far, he's the most "perfect" basketball specimen we've seen.

You have to realize that his muscles are much more spread out because of his length like that other guy said. And to have that much size and the length, it's just crazy.

No footballers -- chalk another one up to American consumer bias.

Who would you nominate over any of them? I've never seen or heard of a soccer player more physically gifted than any of them. Doubt you have either.

@ the guy who said Phelps was the first he thought of. REALLY? As best athletic freak? No. Insanely talented swimmer, but not pure athlete.

Bo Jackson was the first I thought of. Easily the most impressive athlete I have ever witnessed on film or live.

When that's the best player in the world, I'm OK with no soccer players making the list.

Chrissy is a pretty amazing athlete, he'd be the only soccer player I'd consider, but even so, I don't think he'd crack the top ten.

Yeah... quickness, precision, and field IQ are what I'd argue are the three most important aspects of soccer. Even if there are athletes in the leagues capable of reaching this type of pinnacle of athleticism, it's not exactly desired as the benefits are limited. Still the hardest major sport to master IMO.
