It will be hard for people to vote cause I have chosen international sports and you chose national..
Oddly enough, neither of us have an NFL player!?!?!
Oh well, guess NFL players are "real" men!
Oden, Bynum and Prior are fine choices..
Glad you agree with me about Nadal, or I would have destroyed you!
The only thing I can really say is that Van Persie and Wilkinson were bigger stars that meant more to their team than Bynum and Oden..
I know I know I know, Portland trail blazers are crying themselves to sleep for not picking Durant..
But lets face it, Even if Oden was healthy, he is no way near the quality of a Durant.. Blazers just blew it..
Lakers blew it by not trading Bynum for Carmelo.. But thats another story..
Had it not been for the dude that blew moses alou's catch against the Marlins, Prior and Wood would have gone down as Legends in Chicago.. Damn shame your career comes down to some random geeky dude in the stands interfering with the baseball.. And the fact that it was a fan of the cubs is a million times worse..
that fan is of course..

Oden has played in 82 games in the NBA.
Mark Prior was being compared to Tom Seaver and never quite made it in MLB. He got injured too much to be able to be the HOF'er most thought he was destined to be.
Wood was a flamethrower who seemd to be like Eric Gagne. Better suited to shorter stints as a relief pitcher than a starting pitcher.
Bynum misses a lot of time and is always getting hurt.
"The only thing I can really say is that Van Persie and Wilkinson were bigger stars that meant more to their team than Bynum and Oden.."
I must have missed the SUPERSTAR part.
They call/ed me Mr Glass.. Top 5 guys, in recent history, who were/are too injury prone
"Lakers blew it by not trading Bynum for Carmelo.. But thats another story.."
He has been on a rebounding tear as of late, 13.4rpg and 3.8bpg the last 5 games. Trying to prove the Lakers right by not dealing him?

Van Persie is the vice captain and the heart and soul of the arsenal offence..
With him injured, you bring on dwayne dweebly Bendtner.. Who can only score tap ins..
Every year persie is injured.. He's a story thats sad but true..
Johnny Wilkinson is the greatest english rugby player that has ever lived!
No one and I mean no one can ever replace him!
He is only healthy during world cup years!
Oden will only be remebered as a draft bust..
Bynum, yes he is talented, but Id rather have carmelo!

"Oden will only be remebered as a draft bust.."
Because of INJURIES.
"Bynum, yes he is talented, but Id rather have carmelo!"
Most would but this TD is about the most injury prone players.
Melo is not.
Bynum is much more injury prone than Melo
The reason I included Wood was because the Cubs had HUGE expectations for Wood and Prior. They were supposed to be 2 front line stating pitchers that stopped the Cubs ES jinx. And when they both had injuries it set back their franchise.
