    Something seems to be missing from that photo, but I can't put my finger on what . . .

    ......and I find the fact that that "something" is missing to be pretty hilarious. Says a lot about the plans. GH

    If the criterion being used to establish that list was domination within one's own sport, I might have to put Simone Biles first. She has so eclipsed the rest of the participants in wins, medals, whatever, that I almost feel like she is more dominant within that sport than the 7 above her.

    I would certainly not put Roger in 4th (not for this last decade). If you are talking about dominance, I think that you have to go with Djokovic, followed by men's tennis in Nadal. Both have quite a few more grand slam titles in the last decade than Roger. And I agree with Glenn that Biles should definitely be higher than 8th.

    Also:
    How did Roger end up AHEAD of Rafa and Nole when he won 5 slams during this decade and the other two won 13 & 15 respectively? And Serena is also ahead of them and she won 12?
    Durant ahead of Curry? Curry won three NBA titles, Durant 2.
    Usain Bolt is at number 14? A runner who won every single Olympic medal he competed in during the decade? (Short decade for the Olympics, sure, but WTF?)

    If Kershaw is #13 then obviously playoffs weren’t a criteria.

    Re: Other Sports Random, Random

    Definitely interesting list. I agree about Simone. I wholeheartedly agree about Kershaw (do it in the Playoffs Clayton!). Ditto on Mike Trout. I'd say the same about Messi and international competition, which is why I'd put Cristiano ahead of him.

    And I've gotta think the dislike/judgment factor played a heavy role in Floyd being entirely too low on this list because dominant doesn't begin to describe Money Mayweather in his sport. If it's an honest list, he's in the top 3 every time.

    And someone like Tom Brady being on the list, not to mention way too high, makes me think they were trying to make sure they included an NFL player at a decent rank. The Patriots as a whole? Even if I hate them, that's fine. But Tom on his own? I'm no fan of Aaron Rodgers either, but he's the dominant one of the last decade, not Tom. The numbers show that clearly, it's just Tom's team has been better.
