    Amazing Athletes Not Talked About

    Watching Pro's vs. Joe's Season 3 on Spike the other day I was pleased to see Jimmy Smith. Of all athletes in any sports, to me, he is the most dominant to receive little acclamation. The guy did make the Pro Bowl a lot, but was never really talked about despite having I believe 6 or 7 straight 1,000 yd receiving seasons in the NFL. My question for you all is.... can you name some more people not talked about that should be?

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I think Curtis Martin was a very under the radar guy through his career.

    Re: Amazing Athletes Not Talked About

    I definitely agree with Martin and Jimmy Smith. Based on numbers those guys are hall-of-fame locks...but they went kind of under the radar in their career. I think Martin is way up on the all-time rushing list.

    Before he grew his hair out like a fruit and had a mystery procedure done in Austria, Magglio Ordonez.

    Some other names that come to mind are Todd Helton, Fred Taylor, Elton Brand, Brian Westbrook, Shaun Rogers, Algae Crumpler, Mike Sweeney, Michael Cuddyer, and Garrett Anderson.

    its just that he doesnt get as much hype as lebron or kobe, even though they havent won 2 mvps in a row, so im just sayin steve nash doesnt get as much attention even though he is one of the best guys in the nba
