    I've always been a Jordan guy, the Greatest of All Time, but not any more.

    I don't think the sport has seen anything like LeBron James, and I'm not sure ANY sport has.

    You usually see career records and career milestones passed as an athlete is winding down his career. Not this guy. He's still absolutely DOMINANT.

    The closest team athlete I can think of is Jim Brown.

    Thoughts?

    The greatest athletes in the world are US 5th Special Forces followed closely by Navy S.E.A.L.s....Lebron wouldn't last a day in the field with either branch.

    We measure greatness by number of world championships. Nicklaus is better than Woods even though Woods has many more tour wins than Nicklaus. Brady is the best because he has the most rings. Jordan is still the best because he has most rings.

    That's a pack of killers....no unis...you don't know who they are before your throat gets cut. Force-Recon USMC ain't too shabby either.

    Delta and Seal team 6 are tier 1 assets.

    The best of the best of the best, by invitation only units. .... :cool:

    Matter of opinion really.....I got my Ithaca 37 from a SEAL in a trade for my Colt .357 at the Rex in Saigon...they had the first CAR-15s....took me a week to round up enough .12 buckshot to take the 37 into the field. I'll stick with my 5th SFG for all-around badasses....plus they can dig a round out of you and stitch you up if necessary.

    Lebron is more gifted, but I still say Jordan beats him more than 50% of the time over however many matches you want.

    I really don't think you can say that. And those people are not athletes, they are soldiers. Thy might be the worlds best soldiers but war is not a sport.

    If you've won more golf tournaments there is no argument. Woods is better than Nicklaus. But I like them both. There is no official world championship golf tournament.
