No Respect: SI's 25 Toughest
Not a wrestler in sight. Sigh.
The MMA community is happy they got a few guys in.
Good one: "13 Kobe Bryant: What makes him tough: He's impervious to outside distractions* and plays with a single-mindedness that is seen in few athletes." * Like, say, being charged with sexual assault and buy his way out of it? Great roll model.
Or "18 Ron Artest: Defining moment: In one of the NBA's uglier moments, Artest and Stephen Jackson, then members of the Pacers, charged into the stands and fought with fans in the final minute of a game at Detroit's Palace of Auburn Hills in Nov. 2004." Fight with fans in 2004, get praised in 2008!
