What other sports stars do you admire?

Obviously not including tennis

For me I have 2.

1. Brian Lara - its not just the fact that he's a genius, its the fact that he's had so many ups and downs in his career and still come out of it as one of the greatest players of all time. It is a pleasure to watch him bat

2. Paolo Maldini - how has this guy managed to be so guy for so long. An example to all professionals of how to play the game. He is just amazing, yet still has the looks to go with it

1.) Wilton Norman Chamberlain
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilt_Chamberlain

.

Big Man in a Big Man's game...easy to get lost...even in the winds of time. Yet he made the adjustments, even as his body deteriorated, or aged...to put it more gently...to give him a Championship with the Lakers even when his knees were brittle, and he couldn't make it down the court as fast, or play as well offensively as before.

2.) Jim Ryun - miler, metric miler
(obscure? American track & field)
Current Kansas representative in the U.S. Congress
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Ryun

Definitely Roman Šebrle, he's such a delight to watch (unfortunately only 2 days a year):

Manu Ginobili, Carlitos Tevez and Steve Nash.

The first Argentine that mentions Juan Roman Riquelme should be shot on sight.
