You know what I can’t stand? Lists.
All these lists are around in the sports world that try to rank players, teams, positions, eras, and whatever else people can find to put numbers next to in order to start some sort of ridiculous argument among Redditors and Twitterers and Facebookites.
Well, I’m tired of it. I’ve seen too many lists – especially all these best blankety-blank-blank of the 2010s lists.
And now that the 2010s have officially come to a close, I sincerely hope sports listicles go away with the end of the decade.
It’s time for me to play my part in killing lists by making the lengthiest, most useless list of all.
Here’s The Scorecrow’s official ranking of the Top 2010 Athletes of the 2010s, organized not at all by any sort of skill level or accomplishments, but instead by who pops into my head first. I will also provide zero analysis beyond the list itself because no one else that writes lists ever does to any meaningful extent. So why would I?
