Tim Duncan.

He's on my favorite team, he's an outstanding athlete, and he's a genuinely nice guy.

I dunno that I have a favorite. I love amazing feats, so current ones I dig are Bonds & KG.

But I don't have a real favorite...

Mario Lemieux would be my choice but he has been injured for the last two years. I would have to go with Vick because he (like Jordan before him) is someone I would stop and watch no matter who his team is playing or what the team's record is.

MLB: No single player. Love watching Schilling, Johnson, Pedro pitch. Pujols and Vlad for position players. From my favorite team, Pudge is great but I love Dmitri Young's attitude.

Hmmm, that's a tough choice.

Of all time, it was Mark Grace. He was such a great guy on and off the field. He's the type of guy you'd want as one of your friends.

My current favorite athlete would probably have to be either Luis Gonzalez or Brandon Webb.
