    UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has a Undefeated Record and he is not on the List.

    J.J Watt, Deshaun Watson, Deandre Hopkins, Jose Altuve, Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole
    Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetenkounpo, Kawhi Leonard
    Madison Bumgarner, Blake Snell, Jacob Degrom, Max Scherzer

    Djokovic below Halep? Halep has a slightly higher win-loss ratio, but Djokovic got 2 majors this year.

    List seems like they tried too hard to get a person from each possible sport. Surprised Ninja, the pro fortnite player, isn't on there.

    Happy for our boy nonetheless

    How could someone so fat make this list?

    Is dinner table dominance factored in?

    Lmaooooo @ Mahomes being on that list but no Messi and Ronaldo. Bet ESPN just looked up the Ballon d’or (like MVP) winner this year and put Modric.

    Don't think it's about actual athleticism, but actual dominance in their own respective sport. Breanna Stewart had a really, really, really good year.


    edit: To be fair, I still don't know if she dominated the WNBA more than LeBron dominated the NBA. So yeah, I get that it is a weird putting any basketball player over LeBron for the year 2018. Only Harden and Durant have a case.

    Imma let them finish the list, but this is the second worst list of all time behind...yeah not going to go there.

    Think Harden should be #13 because that's his #, yeah? SO random
