Here are my top 5 lists for the 3 major sports right now in the United States.
These lists are clearly subjective and based upon what & who I think is clearly great right now.
For me great athletes can be defined as consistent, motivated, mentally tough, gifted, finisher, killer instinctive & competitive to name a few. Now all may not fit everyone one of these, but it is an overall cohesion of these traits.
Top 5 Across Overall
1. Tom Brady – QB ( Patriots)
2. Antonio Brown – WR (Steelers)
3. Le’Veon Bell – RB (Steelers)
4. Aaron Donald – DE (Rams)
5. Travis Kelce – TE (Chiefs)
