Past 25 years...I say the best athlete is....

Michael Jordan. The man elevated basketball to a whole new level. He's an athlete's athlete. Every kid I knew wanted to be Michael Jordan, and not many athletes throughout history are like that. He was the best basketball on the planet for many years, and argueably, the best ever. It's plain and simple: Michael Jordon is the best athlete in the past 25 years.

I'm not going to go into basketball because there have been so many great players over ther past 25 years, so I'm going to have to say Steve Yzerman or Barry Sanders. Perhaps Barry Bonds or Sammy Sosa.

Granted Yzerman isn't Greztky, Lemieux or Gordie Howe, but Stevie Y has had a stellar career.

well.....the best pure athlete that I have ever seen is Bo Jackson.....he ran a 4.14 40.....he went home to first in 3.1 seconds, from the right side of the plate.....he could throw a baseball 98 mph.....he could two hand dunk a basketball, and was only six foot tall.....he put fear in the hearts of linebackers, pitchers, catchers, defensive linemen.....

Bo Jackson is the most talented athlete of the last 25 years, bar none.....you have to consider what the term is, and the term athlete does not ask who was the best at their sport.....pure athleticism, pure gifted ability.....it's gotta be Bo......

Even though the sport is lame and boring Lance Armstrong has got to be up there as one of the greats in the past 25 years.....
