It is difficult to get this Mount Rushmore of sports thing out of my head, no pun intended. Donald Trump, of all people, made me think about it when he introduced Herschel Walker, a contestant on The Apprentice, as the greatest college football player of all-time.

Rather than choosing the four greatest competitors in each sport, I've listed just three. It's up to FanNation to pick the fourth. Remember, nothing is set in stone. So feel free to carve up any of my three picks and list your own.

Baseball: Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and…

Football: Jim Brown, Jerry Rice, Lawrence Taylor and...

Basketball: Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and…

Hockey: Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux and…

NASCAR: Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon and…

Boxing: Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis and…

Golf: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and…

Tennis: Roger Federer, Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras and…

College football: Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders and…

College basketball: Bill Walton, Pete Maravich, Christian Laettner and…
