    Ernie Banks, Walter Payton, Stan Mikita*, Michael Jordan

    *dang hard not to put Jonathan Toews there


    Philly

    Kinda hard to get pro hoop in Pittsburgh or Tampa so we can flex where need be; however, must be North American top tier professional sports.

    I have Gordie and Isiah on mine.

    Pistons are tough, Dumars/Bing/Billups/Thomas are all there. Only other Tiger that could take the spot is Cobb. Only other Lion is Layne, but he cursed them.

    Detroit's pretty much covered, so I'll do Denver:

    John Elway
    Joe Sakic (honorable mention Patrick Roy)
    Rockies are tough - go with Todd Helton, honorable mentions to Larry Walker, Andres Galarraga, and Matt Holliday.
    Nuggets are tough too - probably Dan Issel or Doug Moe, maybe Alex English. Throw Mutombo on there too for his humanitarian work.

    Yup. I was fortunate to see Russell play and it was a treat.

    Someone from the Bay Area can do SF, but the discussion around Montana and Walsh has potential (not to slight Y.A. Tittle or Oakland fans).

    Broten, Mikan, Page, Oliva.


    *under consideration: Mariucci and Mayasich for hockey, Carew, Puckett and Killebrew for baseball.

    Yeah, I was a huge Tony O fan, but Carew has to be in the discussion. Rare, rare talent.

    And in terms of charisma, Kirby stands alone. Oliva had quite a little, for his day, but Carew had next to none.

    Walsh also had presence as the coach for Stanford and San Jose State, so that gives him quite the presence; but hard to argue with a QB winning 4 SBs too.

    For baseball, Mays or Bonds? Bonds has his skeletons, but a lot of Mays came in NY. In the end, even with the controversy, hard to overlook Bonds.

    For the Sharks: Thornton? I came here in 2004 so I might be overlooking earlier Sharks, but despite the playoff issues the Sharks had much more success since he's become the face of the team.

    Warriors: Gotta be Curry. Nothing against Rick Barry, but Curry's changed the game and won 3 of 4.

    Honorable mention to Wondo on the Quakes.

    It's hard to separate Walsh and Montana. Walsh changed the game, but he wouldn't have been able to without Joe.
