My favorite list to make so far to date, the greatest athletes of this century wasn’t an easy one to put together. Some of these picks may surprise you, some of these picks may bother you, but I think the majority of these picks will have you in agreement. And you know what – the one thing you can’t argue here is the collective greatness of these athletes donning this list. We sports fans have been quite blessed over the past decade and a half. Without any further ado – enjoy!
