    I am far too young to have seen most of these past players play, but my opinion on present (1990s-2013) and past (before 1989)

    Baseball:
    Past: Ted Williams, The Babe, Hank Aaron
    Present: Ken Griffey Jr. (has one of the sweetest swings ever), Nolan Ryan, Cal Ripken, Randy Johnson

    Football:
    Past: Bart Starr, Johnny U, Archie Manning (put the guy with a different team than my deloved Saints, and he has more superbowl rings than anyone else)
    Present: Peyton Manning (saw him play my alma mater when i was about 10 years old and he dominated), Joe Montana, Emmitt

    Basketball:
    Past: Wilt the Stilt, Larry Byrd
    Present: MJ, Lebron

    Hockey:
    Past: Bobby Orr
    Present: Wayne Gretzky

    Golf:
    Past: Jack Nicklaus
    Present: Tiger

    Boxing: Rocky Marciano
    Present: Tyson

    Wrestling:

    Bo Jackson was a phenomenal athlete. Only recent player to be good at 2 pro sports, not just play like Deion, but be good at both.

    Joe Montana was clutch as was Jordan.

    Mariano Rivera is the best closer ever.

    Barry Sanders made professional defenders look silly with his style. Put him in Dallas during his prime and he breaks all the rushing records.

    I believe any athlete that broke through a barrier to be special - the 4 minute mile, 12 feet in the pole vault, 10 second 100 yards,

    Athletes I enjoyed watching -

    Bill Russell, Jerry West, Rick Barry, MJ - in recent times it has been the ability to get press that has driven someone's credentials. I am little impressed by the 1 man show in a team sport.

    Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Jackie Robinson

    Sugar Ray Robinson - Boxing

    Lots of dogs - all with great credentials & ability - none that wouldn't be great to hunt over . I've been in training groups with some great dogs & it is special to watch them do hard things day in & day out, but that had to be nurtured.

    Lots of good Football players who, based on the 21 other guys on the field, might or might not show their greatness. OJ was very good!!!
