.....if we agree that strength speed and endurance is the definition of athlete then shaq wins the strength portion lance wins the stamina and the speed is open to discussion...i can only cite the references in armstrong's book in which he says the only other sport he showed a modicum of interest or skill is bowling...i doubt he wins a footrace w/either tiger or shaq..the race car driver ..who knows ?!blankman wrote:stevethumb wrote:who could kick a 40 yard FG ? who could hit a coupla balls outa the infield from a major league pitcher ? who could play a little football against some real football players ? who could catch some major league fly balls ? who could throw accurately to home plate from centerfield ? who could throw a javelin farther ? lift the most weight ? none of those answers will be lance armstrong..he is incredible in his field but his athletic skills are negligible
I don't think that's what athletic means though. Those are specific sports skills.
Athletic is not about sports IMO. Its speed, stamina and strength- pure physical attributes.
The guy that best possesses those attributes is Lance.
IF the question were who could best play any other sport, you may be right, but that's not what the question is.

I agree with you here on this one, but I would still say LeBron is the best athlete in the world, pretty easily.

Those are the best male athletes of all time IMO, In order. (I'm sure I forgot someone and probably short changed several guys from back in the day).
