    Horrible rankings IMO. If this is based on accomplishments then Tiger is hands down #1 with Phelps and Serena as 2 and 3. Jordan is all time great, but shouldn't even be top 5 looking back only the past 5 years.

    Bond was one of the best players in the game before he took steroids.

    I am only a casual hockey fan until playoffs. I think Malkin is a better hockey player than Crosby.
