The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook (No. 1), Matt Ryan (No. 2), and LeBron James (No. 3) top the Horrow Sports Ventures 2016-17 POWER 100 proprietary annual ranking of the world’s most powerful athletes.

In its seventh consecutive installment, The POWER 100, the proprietary annual ranking of the most powerful athletes in sports, uses a complex statistical model to accurately compare performance and influence through on-field and off-field attributes. This metric is collectively known as POWER, and enables equitable comparison across otherwise incomparable sports.

The POWER 100 continues to generate discussion as an invaluable tool to evaluate an athlete’s brand,” said founder Rick Horrow. “By focusing narrowly on social media for our off-field component, we are combining strong performance analytics with the most robust social media statistics in the industry, forming a unique way of analyzing an athlete’s overall performance measurement and marketability.”
