Graglack throwing a rock further than margdel at #3.
Mike Tyson doesn't make some list makers top heavy weights of all time list. When Tyson does make the list it's because he popularized boxing in the time he was active. He is much like the Klitchko bothers are today, dominate, but not "great". Tyson would probably have been crippled by Ali, Fraser and 8-9 other guys who stood out as great heavy weights in their time.
You want to see greatness look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C84ZxM1txLA That being said, Tyson was an terrible force to be reckoned with in his day, but as far are skill goes couldn't be compared to Mayweather or Pacio today.
Still, my favorite athlete award goes to #5.
Love this Konstantinov quote: "For my game," he explained, "I don’t need to score the goal. I need someone to start thinking about me and forgetting about scoring goals." -Awesome.
My friend and I were talking about his play and he joked that David Stern mandated that the other players take it easy on him so that he can look good to improve engagement (yes he used that word) with the Chinese fans.
