    Any active player, any sport.

    Here's mine in no particular order:
    NBA:

    Amare Stoudamire- One of the most powerful dunkers in the league, and that's what I love watching.. power dunks, facials. Hopefully he isn't slowed by the microfracture surgeries next season.

    Dwight Howard- After finally winning the battle with cancer (Steve Francis) the Magic became one of the biggest stories towards the end of the season. I can't wait to see this young man shit on the league for the next 10 years, although he's in the east and I'll usually be rooting against him.

    Dwayne Wade- You'd never know it on this board because I'm almost always arguing against him for whatever reasons, but I actually enjoy watching D-Wade play. One of the prettiest shots in the game. People do their best to try to make me hate him.. especially if he wins a ring this year, I'll truly never hear the end of it. I look forward to many classic Bron-Wade matchups for years to come.

    Those are probably my top 3

    A few others..

    Andre Iguodala
    Paul Pierce
    Carmelo Anthony
    Jason Kidd
    Jermaine O' Neal
    Elton Brand
    Chris Paul
    Gilbert Arenas

    rotflmfao!!! hahahahahaha!!!!!

    ------------------

    now as far as my list goes...

    NFL:

    Terrel Owens (used to play for my fav team- the Niners. so i don't know if he counts)
    Larry Johnson
    Steve Smith
    Chad Johnson (this guy is hilarious. i love this guy - no homo)
    Tom Brady (best qb in the game IMO)
    Michael Vick (not a big fan of him but he's fun to watch)
    Ben Roethlisberger
    Joey Porter (his shit talking is classic)


    as far as the NBA my list is almost exactly like yours. just add Lebron.

    I won't mention the obvious choices like KG, Shaq, Dirk and those megastar type guys.

    Chris Paul - Went to Wake and dude is gonna be a perennial All-Star selection for the next 10 years. Atlanta would've made the playoffs if they took him instead of Marvin Williams, true story!

    Paul Pierce - Doesn't get half the credit he deserves cuz the Celtics are garbage but he's one of the toughest players in the league imo. Plus 'The Truth' is a sick nickname
    "My name is Shaquille O'Neal and Paul Pierce is the fucking truth. Quote me on that and don't take nothing out."

    Ron Artest - One of the few stars in the league who are willing to actually play some tough defense for an entire game. And dude has some funny quotes from time to time.

    And then other guys like...
    Josh Howard
    Luke Ridinour
    Andrei Kirilenko
    Kirk Heinrich
    TJ Ford
    Grant Hill

    you wouldn't know that from his commentating on laker games... he's always overly harsh with luke

    jim jackson? how's he one of your favorites? lol! i remember you saying you're a fan of outside shooting, but jim jackson? i can't stand his grotesque muscle-bound shooting form. rodney rogers is that dude, though.

    BARON DAVIS! from!? U...C..L...A
    josh howard - his game is my game, just better.

    pj brown - i was a hornet fan for baron davis's entire tenure there, and i just fell in love with pj brown's game. the consumate professional, on the court & off the court with his enourmous donations to the new orleans area & his money mid-range jumper. i was the guy who voted for him for 5th place mvp last season.

    dahntay jones - i'm so inexplicably good with dahntay in video games that i root for him whenever he gets some burn in real life.

    david lee - this dude was AMAZING in the all-mcdonald high school dunk contest going against james white. that was seriously the sickest dunk contest i have ever seen. he was fun to watch in florida as well. underrated player right hurr. david lee is the single reason i watch parts of knicks games.

    honorable mention:
    earl watson
    dan gadzuric
    jason kapono
    dijon thompson
    trevor ariza

    nfl - steve smith, deshaun foster, matt hasslebeck, ricky manning,

    mlb - griffey was my idol growing up

    [funny]

    I guess it's safe to assume you're black then.. because as far as I know, most black people love seeing success at the QB position.. lol. I could probably root for every black QB myself; but I forced myself to hate Vick and Brooks because I'm a Bucs fan. Still.. I know it's only a matter of time before I go "OMG REGGIE BUSH IS SO GREAT"

    My NFL list would probably go...

    Chad Johnson - Theres just no way you can hate this guy, even if you're a Steelers fan.. lol. He's like T.O but in a nicer more entertaining version (if that's possible)

    LT & Antonio Gates
    Santana Moss
    Dwight Freeney
    Ray Lewis
    I liked Chad Pennington for awhile... does he still count as an active player tho?
