Ok, well 7 was too easy. I agree, 21 is a better number for sure and will open some debate up.

We've already had some for Clemente, and L. Tomlinson (no I don't know how to spell LaDanian).

21 conjures up some memories.
Snap.
Damon Bailey with the P's.
Mark Strickland.
Lamont Warren with the Colts - remember him?
Bob Sanders
Dominque Wilkins
Neon Deion Primetime Sanders
Roberto Clemente
Barry Sanders at OSU
L.T.

And a whole host of other 21s that are not coming to mind.

And I'll start the vote with Deion. Best cornerback in the history of football, I think.

For someone who's not much of a baseball enthusiast, what exactly did Clemente do? I know he was a great Pittsburgh Pirate, but my knowledge thereafter is quite limited.

Jim Thorpe

Other candidates:

Stan Mikita 3 time NHL MVP, 10 time all star, 4 time scoring champion
Juan Marichal
Warren Spahn most wins by a left hander with 363. Hold the NL record for homeruns by a pitcher with 35.

Timmy.

Whoever says Deion should be ashamed. One of the most overrated players ever IMO.

Clemente and Mikita would be about a draw. Duncan could surpass them one day.

Sammy Sosa would have made this list before the scandal

Um... I don't know how Barry Sanders was in college, but if he was anything like in the pros then this is no longer worth debating.

Then let's keep it at the pro level. There were a lot of guys that were great in college. It would be hard to compare a college career with a pro career.

Alright, then I'm gonna go with Duncan. LT and Deion are close at this point, and if LT were to ever start winning some rings then I'd probably go with him. But for now, IMO, its Duncan.

I'm still going with Thorpe. One of the greatest athletes ever to play any sport.

Let's get to the fun numbers such as 13, 12, 14. Those will have some really good debates based on the HOF lists.

Clemente. An absolute freak at everything. Too bad it was cut short.

I really like this idea, but this would be a great thing for the offseason when things are dead. Which with the way things are going, may be here in March.:zip:

As far as I know, Duncan. But don't forget Kevin Garnett in your list.
