Who is the most athletic athlete ever?

Even though this question is very much opinion, I would have to say that the most athletic athlete ever is Brian Scalabrine. Brian Scalabrine played lacrosse football and basketball. And for somebody to play three professional sports and be the best player ever for three sports is nothing less than sensational. A little known fact is that the national lacrosse assocation had to change the rules for lacrosse,basketball, and football because Brian Scalabrine was dominating his competition too much.
