You've named too many people for me to actually argue against, so I'll just mention some guys who should not be there or are too high.

Carl Lewis - great athlete but most of his great moments came in the 80's. Instead, I would list Micheal Johnson.

Wayne Gretzky - He shouldn't be this high but Mario Lemieux should be this high. He was the class of the NHL during the 90's

Mike Tyson - Once again, great in the 80's but not so great in the 90's. In fact, the 90's can be considered the time with most of his antics and losses. Prison, numerous losses, bit Holyfield's ear.
I'll go with Roy Jones Jr. - Was named Fighter of the Decade in the 90's, and was basically undefeated with the exception of his DQ against Montel Griffin.

Dan Marino put up numbers but the Dolphins were a non-factor in the 90's.
Where's Barry Sanders? You know, the greatest running back of all time

Also, if you're going to list David Robinson, I'm going to list Hakeem Olajuwon, who absolutely owned Robinson and won 2 titles.


You destroyed my list ha ha..

Roy Jones Jr.

Good one.

He's still the first athlete I think of when I consider who were the most dominant athletes in my lifetime.

Roy used to toy with people in the ring, just because he could. He was really something in his prime. Dude was from a different universe; just freakishly dominant.

I don't think it's a coincidence that I stopped purchasing PPV boxing matches right around the time that Roy started falling off.

Watching Jones drop his hands to his sides and then just bob and weave was astonishing.
