MTV's Rock N Jock NBA All Star Jam

Colin Cowherd’s Top 10 Most Physically Imposing Athletes in Sports History.

10. Wilt Chamberlain: “In American in 1959 the average NBA player was 6’5” and a little under 200 pounds… Wilt was 7’1” and averaged 50 points a game!”

9. Babe Ruth: “Babe was hitting more home runs than an entire league.”

8. Randy Johnson: “When he debuted he was the tallest baseball player ever. He was 6’10” already standing on a mound. At his best he was the most physically overpowering baseball player I’ve ever seen.”

7. Zdeno Chara: “Tallest player in NHL history and a force to be reckoned with. He was drafted in 1997 and was just the captain of the Boston Bruins who went to the Stanley Cup.”

6. Serena Williams: “Just made the Wimbledon Final and has the most dominant serve, backhand, and forehead in women’s tennis history.”

5. Usain Bolt: “Holds the world record in the 100-meter, 200-meter, and 4X100-meter relay. He looks like an NFL football player and would toy with guys for 80 yards."

4. Shaquille O’Neal: “It was hard to explain those Orlando Magic Shaq teams. He was literally breaking backboards.”

3. Andre the Giant: “Hulk Hogan tore a muscle just trying to lift him to slam him. He was so strong that promoters and wrestlers were concerned that he would hurt people.”

2. Tiger Woods: “The first golfer in my life that consistently hit the ball 320 yards off the tee. He could hit it out of the rough 175 yards and reminded me of an NFL free safety he was so strong.”

1. Bo Jackson: “Won the Heisman, made the MLB All-Star team, and made the NFL Pro Bowl. He ran up walls, he ran over linebackers, he was the fastest and strongest player on the field. A superstar in football, baseball, and track. Was the first guy I ever remembered breaking a bat.”

Honorable Mention: Michael Vick, Michael Phelps, Lawrence Taylor.
