I'm sure that will be the popular choice here, but the fact is Kobe needs a dominant big man to do anything in the postseason, whereas Duncan IS a dominant big man and the best ever at his position.

It's funny how Pau Gasol became "dominant" right around the time he joined the Lakers.

Anyway...

NBA: Kobe or Duncan...it's a coinflip. I'll pick Kobe because I'm a Laker fan.
NFL: Peyton Manning
MLB: Albert Pujols
College Football: Tim Tebow
College Basketball: Tyler Hansborough
Well, Golf & Tennis are easy picks.

NBA - Kobe Bryant
NFL - Peyton Manning
MLB - Albert Pujols
NHL - Alex Oveckin (dude's a stud)
College Football - Reggie Bush (the most dynamic college Football player ever)
College Basketball - Tyler Hansborough

The guy was an all star at MEMPHIS of all places, he's one of the best low post players in the game. Considering the dearth of low post players right now, you'd have to say he was pretty dominant in comparison.

I'll add College Football - Vince Young, Tebow played more seasons, but VY was more dominant in his time.
College Basketball: JJ Reddick. I didn't like the guy but he was very good over a long period of time in a good program. Kevin Durant was the most dominant, but only 1 year.
NFL: Peyton Manning
NBA: Kobe Bryant
MLB: Albert Pujols
NCAAF: Reggie Bush
NCAAB: Carmelo Anthony
Golf: c'mon man !
Tennis: Roger Federer
NASCAR: I hear Jimmie Johnson's name alot on Sportscenter so i'll go with him
Ping-Pong: Robert Johnson
NHL: Hockey Sucks

I would have thought that Tom Brady would get an NFL vote or 2.

Bonds didn't even finish out the decade haha. He's still my favorite baseball player though.

I don't watch a lot of college ball. He was as dominant in that one season than any of the other picks I've seen. I never say Jay Williams play so he might be the pick.
