    Most people would probably say LeBron just due to being a household name and almost an enigma at this point.

    I think it's a tight race between...

    LeBron
    Floyd Mayweather
    Serena Williams
    Tom Brady
    Tiger Woods (although he's done fell off hard in the last 5 years or so)

    I was watching the Patriots game last night before I made this poll.

    Tom Brady is clearly and unquestionably the best quarterback in the 21st Century. But does that transcend other sports?

    How do you compare his six super bowl appearances and 4 rings to Serena Williams? I'm pretty sure she has more than 4 titles, but tennis and football aren't organized the same way.

    I had to vote for Serena.

    Maybe it'll get me points and I'll get to meet her someday.

    Lebron and Mayweather and its not even close.

    Honorable Mention: Vince Carter and Serena on the female.

    Are we talking athletic ability (running, jumping and speed) or dominance as an athlete?

    Bc having the most astounding athletic ability does not mean your the best in that sport. I.E. Vince Carter

    Yeah I forgot Usain Bolt

    But is it necessary to type KYS?

    I also forgot the swimmer, I think his name is Michael Phelps. He won 8 medals in the 2008 olympics I think.

    Gotta go with Serena Williams. Individual sport, random drug testing to the gills, not to mention she's at the top of her game in a sport that's notoriously unfriendly to athletes in their mid-thirties.

    He's unathletic.

    And if your talking about winning he don't play defense and it's takes a totally team effort to win in football. It's 21 other starters on a football team

    I kinda know what you mean when you say "unathletic". But if he's not "athletic" then what is he?

    He's certainly the best at what he does. As far as I see it the only quarterbacks that are even in Brady's league are Drew Brees, Peyton Manning (and you could say Eli Manning). But realistically Brady's better than all of them.

    Is it "skill" or "athleticism" or a little of both? Its not that easy to throw a 40 yard pass right on the money. Especially when people are trying to tackle you. And he's been going to the Superbowl and winning for 15 years now.
