The 100 Greatest Athletes of the Complex Decade

61. Derek Jeter

Sport: Baseball
Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2009 World Series Champion, 8x All-Star, 5x Golden Glove Winner, 4x Silver Slugger Award Winner
In terms of endorsements, bagging chicks, on the field performance and respect from peers and the media, Jeter is the last star left. He always speaks from the heart instead of giving us bullshit statements that athletes love so much. The captain isn't as good as he once was, but he still has that aura around him like he's untouchable. One knock on DJ has always been his fielding. Guess what? He's won all 5 of his Gold Gloves over the course of the last ten years.
