You can pick ONE athlete ever to have an injury-free career (from beginning to end), who are you choosing and why?

Peter Press Maravich.  He could do it all.  He'd had a much better career if he was healthy. 
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

Bo Jackson may have been the greatest athlete in any sport that I have seen.  He was extremely exceptional in the categories that define athleticism, being speed, power and agility.  His athleticism was unmatched. And he we equally as good as he was in both sports he played.

Derrick Rose.

He would have been regarded as one of the best PGs ever if not for knee injuries.

Did he have injuries prior to NBA?
