  1. This is the worst top 10 list I have ever seen. Watchmojo why dont you upload videos once a week, so You can take some time to come up with a good top 10's list?

  2. How did you forget THE most entertaining athlete of All-Time!? "NEON" DEION SANDERS a.k.a PRIMETIME. I mean he's nickname saids it all. A NFL Hall of Fame who also played in the MLB!? C'MON Man!!!

  3. Muhammad Ali at #1, what?!!?! He may have been good but doesn't deserve #1. He is hyped up more han he should be because of people now a days trying to live in the past when they know the present and future are better.

  4. Manny Pacquiao is more entertaining than McGregor. McGregor doesn't have enough fights to be considered as an 'entertaining athelete'. He hasn't even defended any of his belts.

  5. Vince Carter. Even at the age of 40, he still makes the highlight reel from time to time. There's a reason he led all star voting 3 years straight(2000-02). Would have been 5 but Kobe took 2003. But VC led the votes again in 04.

  6. how the fuck is Serena Williams on the list yet Federer only makes the honourable mentions. she's about as entertaining as shitting glass
