Great topic...

not sure how Knute Rockne rates in as a player...

I do not know crap about Hockey, Soccer, or long distance running...

However, Team sports kind of eliminates it unless you just name the team

so I will keep my list for sports that I follow and for the most part that a single player can dominate..

Tiger

Sugar Ray Leonard

Serena Williams

Usain Bolt

These are the only real sports anyway. The rest are games or activities.

agree with Bob's list, except I would put Joe Montana in there over Brady.

Baseball has too many for me to pick only one, so your list looks sharp.

This is very difficult, what I'm trying to do is pick someone from a sport where the gap between that athlete and the second best in that sport is as wide as possible. For example, everyone is picking Michael Jordan, but imo the gap between him and LeBron isn't that wide, the same with Brady and whoever the second best football player is. so for right now there are only two athletes I can think of who imo are clearly head and shoulders above the second best athlete in their particular sport. I'll have to do some more thinking before filling my other two spots.

Serena Williams
Wayne Gretzky
