Not enough stats in this thread which would be useful for people who don't follow the sports you watch:

Michael Johnson

6 x world champion (excluding relays)
2 x Olympic Champion (ER)

Becomes only athlete to win the 200 / 400 Olympic Double

Sets World Record for both distances (400 still stands)


Miguel Indurain

5 x Tour De France
2 x Giro D'Italia
2 x Giro / Tour Double
Olympic and World Time Trial Champion


Also Monica Seles and her nine grand slams in the space of three and a quarter seasons deserves special mention.

If Griffey had stayed healthy, he'd be the GOAT when it comes to baseball. He'd be right up there with Mays, Ruth, Aaron, etc. He was a true five-tool player.

Since I refuse to acknowledge cheaters, a couple of baseball greats that don't get mentioned are two of the greatest pitchers ever, Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux. Both were complete contrasts, Johnson would overpower at the plate, while Maddux nibbled and bit at the strike zone piece by piece.

NFL running backs, Emmitt Smith can be in the discussion for GOAT as far as running back, he is the all-time leading rusher in NFL history. One could also say Deion Sanders was the GOAT at defensive back. He might have been a pussy when it came to tackling, but he was a big-time shutdown corner. No one threw his direction.

Two teams that could be GOAT...1995-96 Bulls that went 72-10 and won the NBA championship, and the '98 Yankees who went 114-48 in the regular season and won 125 games total including the first of three straight World Series titles.

Smith and Sanders are debatable at their positions. Don't forget though that Deion was also an incredible punt returner. I'm sure you haven't. Not sure Johnson or Maddux are top 10-20 all time. Pretty sure Nolan Ryan was the last GOAT candidate to retire. People always bring his win/loss into the mix, but lol wins are a garbage stat (he still got 300+). He played mainly for the Angels, Astros, and Rangers, three teams that weren't good that often.

There should of been a different league for him. The problem is that he would of been the only person in that league.

I think the most advantageous trait Emmitt possessed was being consistently durable. Don't ever remember him being a freak athlete.

Toughness, vision, and his blinding burst to the hole. That was Emmitt Smith. He had average speed at best.

MJ is definitely the best for me.

As for 72-10 Bulls, I'm not sure they were even the best Bulls team tbh. I'd take the 92 Bulls over them mainly because they played in a better league with stiffer competition. By 96, the quality of the league was kind of watered down with the effect of expansion further sinking in and a lack of dominant rookies/newcomers to balance things out. Early 90s draft classes aren't exactly flooded with talent and a lot of prospects didn't pan out due to a variety of reasons (injuries, drugs, motivation etc).

Also, I don't think Pete Sampras is GOAT. I don't know much about tennis history but I'm not ranking him over Federer at the very least. It's not just because of the GS totals but also that I don't think Pete's all around game was as good which allows Federer to be more versatile. I think he might be better at Wimbledon though it depends on the speed of the grass. In the 90s, I think Pete would get the W but the grass slowing down in recent years would neutralize Pete's dominant first and second serve to a certain extent. Federer is also damn good at reading fast serves (look at how well he does vs Roddick's serve for example) and he can also counter Pete's serve and volley with some elite passing shots forcing him to re-think his strategies over the course of the match. AO and FO goes to Federer easily as Pete didn't tend to do as well on slower surfaces and that reflects in their records at those respective tournaments. USO would be another great battle largely because of how well those two performed there and the crowd would be red hot in support of Pete so they could have plenty of classics there. But yeah, overall, I think Fed is a superior and more accomplished player.

Deion Sanders can make a case
