Lance Armstrong

Samboy Lim

David Robinson

Tim Duncan

Michael Jordan

Reggie Theus

Detlef Schrempf



I would have to agree with you with Tim Duncan, when Tony Parker was asked about winning his MVP award he referred to Tim Duncan, he said that the team revolved around this humble but effective guy. Though he's marketing nightmare but he's the epitome of sportsmanship and selflessness.

Derek fisher....willing to give up his reviving career in Utah just to spend time with his ailing daughter. More than fame, career, money or anything else, it's family that really matters most.

Hope he can still play elsewhere (i hope in LA) where he can still play yet he can attend to the medical needs of his daughter.

Tim Duncan for being nonchalant about what most NBA players play for; EGO, FAME and FLARE

Manu GINOBILI- Though many people think he's a flopper but, he is also a rare NBA Star. why? How many players would agree to come off the bench? He does what is best for the team.

I've always thought that KERBY RAYMUNDO of purefoods LETRAN was an airhead, angas type of person... As in angas na angas ako dito...

Pero when I watched him sacrifice his playing time sa National team tapos yung laro nya knina against IRAN, He gained my respect... PUSO pinakita niya.

When Manute Bol went to the Warriors, the 7-7 beanpole started heaving 3 point bombs?!!! :lol: Geez

for me, coach Don Nelson and Mike Fratello

don Nelson - probably the mad scientist of the NBA. pioneered the "small-ball", "hack-a-shaq", "point-forward position" and turning a 7 foot german into a freakin 3 point shooter (imagine what he can do to Yao Ming if he's his coach.) So crazy, so creative.

me too he's a hardworker and considering that he had an acl injury on his rookie year.
steve nash, jason kidd and john stockton. plays hard every game and willing to sacrifice.
Scottie Pippen- the superstar role player

Lance Armstrong - obvious reasons
Paolo Maldini - played his entire career - till now - with AC Milan
Pete Sampras - watching him play with tears flowing down his face as he plays for his long time coach who had died of cancer
Randy Couture - still kicking ass in the UFD at 40+

Asi Taulava, Jimmy Alapag, Gabe Norwood - theyre more fiipino by heart by giving their best for our country. Di lang nasa dugo ang pagiging pilipino, kundi sa puso din. saludo ako sa inyo.

Chot Reyes (please lower ur eyebrows guys) - He knows he's against all odds. tough competition, short preparation time, keys players injuries, his wrong moves and decisions getting magnified, slim chance of success, criticisms and harsh words from know-it-all basketballs genius and gods, even mtc posters. but still got some balls to give this one a losing yet very brave fight. Tough fate and sacrifices he endured only to be rewarded back home with rotten tomatoes and eggs.

vince hizon - i thought puro pa cute lang dati as a player, but secretly, he is funding his own scholarship foundation. dami na ring beneficiaries nito but he didnt want allow the media to highlight this one.

Jimmy Alapag did earned my respect. His fighting spirit showed even when the team was slowly LOSING the game vs Jordan by pushing his teammates to give it there all.

Not too long ago, Benjie Paras earned my respect also when he bagged his 2nd MVP despite the influx of the FIL-SHAMS that includes, Alvarado, Parker, Segova and Fil-Ams Taulava, Seigle etc...He ELEVATED his game to a different level and showed this FIL-AMS a thing or two.
