I’ve been on a family vacation this week and we’ve been watching–which I, as a UNC graduate and an NC resident have OF COURSE already seen– The Last Dance, the mini series chronicling the success of the 1990s Chicago Bulls helmed by Michael Jordan.

As we started watching it, my brother said, offhandedly to his wife, that Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball of all time. And that’s reasonable–as would a claim for LeBron or Kobe. But it got me thinking about greatest athletes, independent of sport. My husband believes that there has never been a greater athlete than Wilt Chamberlain. The older of my two brothers made a case for Roger Federer. I think it’s tough to beat Serena.

Who do you think the greatest athlete of all time is? And were you to pick an author to writer that athlete’s romance, who would it be?
