You might want to mention that this is your opinion somewhere in the description for this quiz. While I agree that J.J. Watt, Mike Trout, and Patrick Kane are all outstanding players, I disagree that they are the best in their sport.

Some of these are rather controversial. How do you determine the best sportsman in team-based sports like soccer and ice hockey? I'd like to hear what you base these on. Moreover, Roger Federer is currently only third in the world ranking, behind Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Chad Le Clos? Are you joking? He's good in one or two events. Phelps is still active, and no person in their right mind would rate any swimmer above him. I'd still put Missy Franklin and Cullen Jones ahead of Le Clos
