You obviously haven't heard his name enough to know how to spell it

Shaq. The most dominant player in the NBA today.

For me, it was a toss-up between Kobe and LeBron, but i chose Kobe because even though LeBron gets too much coverage, at least it's all for on-court activities, not in-court activities.

As much as I am sick of hearing Owens whine...I love watching the guy play. But his agent messed up, so he needs to just suck it up play. Kobe just needs to suck it in general.

Kobe. I used to despise Owens for his stunt against Dallas several years ago, but now he is just pure entertainment. He is never dull that is for sure!

Barry Bonds.

I like Barry, his accomplishments are amazing, even if he is on steroids, but I just get tired of the media constantly trying to stir things with him, and then reporting on every little detail. I wish we could leave those athletes who don't want to be bothered alone. I don't need to hear every detail of stuff that happens off the field.

Babe Ruth. So big deal, the guy was named after a candy bar and hit a bunch of home runs way back in the 80s or something. I haven't seen him on SC lately, so his career must be in the dumps. Why all the love?

Cause he's still a role model for all the little boys out there who want to grow to be able to eat hot dogs and smoke cigars all day, and drink scotch and sleep with hookers all night.

What's even worse is he came up with that name himself. He more or less made an announcement to the press his 2nd or 3rd year in the majors that he'd like to be called A-Rod

I loved the stunt against Dallas. He was just making sure God could see him through the hole in the roof.

I voted for Kobe, but more because of the Kobe/Shaq feuds than anything else.

Is it safe to say that the non Laker fans chose Kobe?

Where's the Kobe/Shaq/Jackson option? Sick to death of it.

Picked Kobe.
