ESPN has scientifically determined the greatest athlete ever. I could even see the guy who finished second as that high. But with all due respect to the person who finished first...Am I the only one who is not really convinced ? 

See the list here:

I'm fairly certain that a list of the 16 greatest athletes ever would not be 3/4 Americans.

I'm so fairly certain a number of those in the bracket were chosen solely to represent certain sports and not based on any actual athletic skills relative to other athletes.

Yes, it says so in the description, that athletes were chosen to represent different sports.

How does Jackie Robinson go so deep?  I mean, in terms of impact maybe, but if you're trying to actually talk about the best players/best athletes...  No way he should win his first-round matchup against Mays, right?  Certainly not his second-rounder against Pele.

He did win like 12 varsity letters at UCLA and I think he played for the Globetrotters.
