Best Players Since You Started Following The Sport

In sports, people talk all the time about who was the best player at this position or that position. A lot of these players were people we never actually saw play. So first say when you started watching a sport and then post a lineup of the best players you've seen since you starting watching.


I have been watching football since 1995.

QB: Peyton Manning (Colts)
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson (Chargers)
WR: Marvin Harrison (Colts)
WR: Randy Moss (Vikings/Raiders/Patriots)
TE: Tony Gonzalez (Chiefs)
G: Will Shields (Chiefs)
G: Alan Faneca (Steelers)
C: Jeff Saturday (Colts)
T: Willie Roaf (Saints/Chiefs)
T: Tarik Glenn (Colts)
DE: Reggie White (Eagles/Packers)
DE: Michael Strahan (Giants)
DT: John Randle (Vikings)
DT: Warren Sapp (Buccs/Raiders)
LB: Derrick Brooks (Buccs)
LB: Ray Lewis (Ravens)
LB: Derrick Thomas (Chiefs
DB: Darrell Green (Redskins)
DB: Champ Bailey (Redskins/Broncos)
S: Ed Reed (Ravens)
S: Bob Sanders (Colts)
K: Adam Vinatieri (Patriots/Colts)
P: Jeff Feagles (Cardinals/Seahawks/Giants)

F - Tim Duncan
F - LeBron James
G - The Mamba

---

Paul Pierce, Jason Kidd, and Gilbert Arenas almost made it. Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter can go sulk in the corner somewhere.

NBA since around the same time:

G - Michael Jordan
G - Kobe Bryant
F - Karl Malone
F - Tim Duncan
C - Shaquille O'Neal

Bench - Iverson, Kidd, Pippen, Garnett, D. Robinson

Football is too hard. I know Favre would be my QB and Barry Sanders would be my RB, though. And Dev Hes would be my kick returner.

Add Kobe to my NBA team, please, and remove Drexler.

GAF, it's not like doing my MLB list was "easy". What Would Hawk Do? He'd make the list......so.......do the football list or be forever scorned.

NSW, you don't have a catcher listed on your baseball lineup. It's gotta be Pudge Rodriguez though, right?

If he's been watching since '75, he has 2 choices, and though one is a "pudge", its the original, not Pudge light hold the steroids.

Bench or Fisk.

Hey douche, unless your pitchers are real good at pitching to contact, you're going to need a catcher. I recommend Matt Nokes.

Bench or Fisk.

Can I speculate on what NSW will say too?

He is a Yankee fan...and I would have to believe if he did not miss that runway, Thurman Munson would certainly rank up there with Bench and Fisk as one of the greats (if he doesn't already).

Munson would be on my list.



Billy and Thurman!

I starting paying attention to pro sports when I was a really little shit. Probably when I was 5 or 6, so 1978 or thereabouts.

MLB- Dave Winfield- Big Dave could do it all.
NFL- Lawrence Taylor- LT was The Man.
NBA- Michael Jordan- He saved the NBA.
NHL- Wayne Gretzky- There's only one Great One.
Tennis- Martina- She was The Woman.
Golf- Tiger Woods- Who else could it be?
Boxing- Mike Tyson- Before Don King took over his career, Tyson was unstoppable.
Pro Wrestling- Bret Hart- The best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.

I cannot believe that I overlooked Catcher. Jesus.

The sentimental pick would be Munson, but, I have to go with Bench.
