    My answer is Bo Jackson.

    He was pretty famous after that

    All trolling from the other thread aside, I'm also on the Bo Jackson train. He legitimately could have had a hall of fame career in two different major sports had he not gotten injured. Dude was a freak.

    Honorable mention I'll go with:

    LeBron
    Deion Sanders
    Usain Bolt
    Mike Vick
    Barry Bonds
    Randy Moss

    I'm sure there are a ton I'm missing but those were the ones who popped into my head.

    Also, shame on no one for including LeBron on their lists until I got into this thread. As purely a physical specimen, which is what this thread asked for, there are very few athletes in sports history who can hold a candle to him.

    Jackson had great speed, and he was quite strong. Yet aside from one year as RB, maybe two, his abilities never really manifested. OP is talking about just ability, and I get that. However, part of one's ability is to be able to actually...do it. And his body, the same body that let him run a 4.1 at 230 pounds, was the same one that was flawed heavily by his bad hip. He was a ticking time bomb. I don't think the two can be divorced, but if someone would, joking aside from the prior thread, I wouldn't fault them.

    I'm going to say Elway, Jesse Owens, or Vick.

    Dammit. Well then I will just yell at you for not formatting your list as a column. Ain't nobody trying to read a long list of names like that!

    The column is still a list, though, and while you said "like that," I'm interpreting it as not the literal version. If it is the literal version, then I declare the list of names was given in a readable fashion, and your formatting issue is not as important as your lack of thorough reading!
