    Who is your favorite athlete? Notice I say athlete, singular. I'm sure we can all name multiple people, but let's keep it ultra exclusive here. It can be from any sport, any team, any time, anyone...but just make it one.

    Mine is Hakeem Olajuwon. In Houston, we only have two professional sports championships, and they were both delivered by the Rockets. Plus, basketball was my game growing up. Hakeem is probably the best athlete the city of Houston has ever seen.

    I'm not old enough to remember him playing, even later in his NBA career, but Pistol Pete Maravich would be my favorite athlete ever.

    Reggie Lewis! I loved him when I was a kid he really brought me in to the game of basketball for some reason. Honestly not sure why I chose him over Bird, but I liked his name.

    How about everyone's favorite ACTIVE athlete?

    Definitely Mike Richards of the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Toni Kukoc, he wasn't an amazing all-star, but he played off the bench better than anyone I can think of.

    The NBA should consider bringing back the game of HORSE to their all-star weekend events.

    I think that'd be a great idea. I'd much rather watch that than the Skills Challenge they do nowadays.

    Wow, that's pretty strange Aaron! If someone did get the idea from this thread, shouldn't we be credited? Oh well...I'm looking forward to it, should be pretty cool. Hopefully they can get Chris Paul to participate...something tells me he knows a few tricks.
