The Greatest Greatest

Ok so we often have conversations about who is the greatest of all time. My guess is that Efren Reyes gets the most votes in that category, especially if you ask pro pool players.

My question is (and this certainly will be partially NPR): Of all the sports out there, which greatest of all time is so, with the least dispute?

I think titles, overall ability, dominance among peers, style and grace, records and accomplishments, longevity, and of course *magic*, would all go into selecting the GOAT. Efren clearly has all of these things. But arguments could be made for Earl, Willie, etc.

Some of the less disputable greatests might be Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Roger Federer.

So the criteria for The Greatest of the Greatest of All Time list would be simply, who is *most convincingly* and universally considered the greatest of all time in their respective discipline. I'm kinda thinking Gretzky. What do you guys think?

I'd love to hear peoples Top 10, top 5, etc. whatever you want, list of the GGOAT.

And...GO!

I think the answer to this is pretty easy actually. That would be Kane Waselenchuk… He is the greatest Racquetball Player of All Time.

Good one.

Here is my list, but I'm not 100% sure about it. Also, I feel near certain I will smack my head and realize I forgot a real obvious one:

1) Wayne Gretzky (hockey)
2) Roger Federer (tennis)
3) Michael Jordan (basketball)
4) Efren Reyes (croquet and badminton...duh)
5) Joe Montana (football-quarterback)

The football one is what brought this up for me. If Tom Brady takes the Pats to another Superbowl win this year, it will be pretty tough to argue against him as the GOAT in this category.

Kane dominates racquetball more than anyone has dominated any sport. I'm not even sure if he's human.

This thread is going to crush my productivity. Lots of youtube distractions in my near future I'm afraid!

Buddy Rich! And that's all I have to say! But since this is about pool,,,, only because I have heard insane stories about him, I will say Harold Worst!

Except Sugar Ray Robinson was better , pound for pound.
And Joe Louis was the heavyweight champ for more than a decade .
Did not lose a fight while being a champion.


Secretariat is the greatest ever in any sport .
