SPORT (YEARS): Basketball (1996-present)
REPPIN': Victoria, British Columbia (settled into Victoria after 18 mos.)
COMPLEX SAYS: Say what? How could anyone surpass Joe Sakic as the best player to come out of Vancouver? First the rep: In his prime, there was no other player—white, Canadian, long-haired, or otherwise—that you wanted handling the rock. Now the numbers: Homie won the NBA MVP award in back-to-back years and led the NBA in assists five times. And maybe if ol' Robert Horry hadn't forechecked him in a basketball game he'd have a Finals MVP as well.
