A man tweeted out the question:
Alright Twitter: List your Top 5 favorite athletes of your life. Not best, favorites. Can mean most entertaining to watch, personality, etc.— Johnny Carver (@CarverJohnny) July 29, 2017
Which led to a variety of answers. Mark and I included pro players as well:

Baylor basketball is my favorite sports team by a large margin, so that’s why my list features three hoops players. If I did this again, I’d probably swap Cory Jefferson for Priest Holmes. And if I make this list again in five years, there’s a good chance a player or two on the 2017-2018 Bears will make my top five.
We’ll return to previews, podcast, videos and the like starting Tuesday, but today we ask: who are your favorite Baylor athletes of all-time?
