Stephen A. Smith breakdown of GOAT Athletes

In the clip up above, Smith was asked whether or not he thinks Brady is the greatest athlete of all-time. Immediately, Smith said no. Overall, he believes that you can’t really consider Brady to be a top-tier athlete. At the end of the day, he was never truly athletic. Instead, he was just someone who knew how to throw the football well, while also possessing a fantastic mind for the game. Consequently, Stephen A. was asked who he believes are the most athletic athletes of all-time. Smith went on to say that it would have to be Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders as they played both football and baseball at the highest level.

Both Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders managed to succeed at NFL football and Major League Baseball. Jackson’s major league career lasted from 1986 to 1994, including time with the White Sox. Simultaneously, he played four seasons with the Los Angeles Raiders, from 1987 to 1990. Sanders played in the NFL from 1989 to 2005, concurrently logging parts of nine seasons in the big leagues.

Michael Jordan who is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player ever, once tried to follow the footsteps of Jackson and Sanders. A fan of baseball, Jordan attempted to be a two sport player when he originally retired from the NBA after winning the big championship in a threepeat. In an interview with NBC he stated the following.
