Top 5ive Twice (Edited 02/04/13 02:43PM by Jess)
Break out poll, since the question turned into to a hijacking situation in another thread.


Which professional athlete do you consider to be on two different teams all-time top 5 list?

For example: Wilt Chamberlain PHI & LA

Got it? Good. Go!

I don't want to think about this so off the top of my head...Dennis Rodman (shut up), Jason Kidd, and Sam Cassell has to be the top of 2 out of his 12 teams.
Gary Player (Huh? ...Gets the people going)  
#3 | 535 days ago

Carter Expos & Mets (NY fans, what do you think?)

And a good contentious one, because of the rival teams involved, is Rod Woodson Ravens & Steelers. I'd like to hear form Balt and Pitt fans on that one. Am I reaching?

Greg Maddux CHC and ATL is the first I though of.

Nope, sorry...Top 5 Pistons ever...Isaiah Thomas, Dave Bing, Bob Lanier, Joe Dumars, Grant Hill. Rodman was a great Piston.

#14 | 535 days ago

(Edited by Kenne)
Marshall Faulk (Rams, Colts)
Kurt Warner (Rams, Cardinals)
Maybe Anquan Boldin (Ravens, Cardinals) but he would be at #5 for both, if that high.

Charles Barkley (76ers, Suns)
Clyde Drexler (Blazers, Rockets)
HuskerDoug mentioned Shaq, though I would put him on the Heat's top 5, probably not the Lakers)
Alonzo Mourning (Heat, Hornets) This one is a stretch.
I almost want to put Kevin Garnett, but he wouldn't be in the Celtics Top 5. Top 10 maybe.

Manny Ramirez (Indians, Red Sox)

Obvious choices:
Nolan Ryan & Babe Ruth.
Wayne Gretzky & Bobby Hull.

Wow, great call. I have a lot of Celtic fans and they all rave about DJ in Boston. Always mention how he's overlooked on those dynasty teams. I also hate when they enshrine guys in the HOF after they've died. So, so stupid. He should have already been in there YEARS ago.

Hmmm, just ran that up the flag pole with truthers back home. It came down to either him and (oddly enough another Rockie) Andres Gallaraga in the Expos top 5 with Raines, Dawson, Carter and Vlady. I would have had Tim Wallach above both of them as well. idk? Walker was insanely popular though, so it may be affecting our choice, since his stats were only kinda "good" and not great in Montreal. Different era too... now I'm swinging back to Walker again. I need to stop.

Now me again..
I agree with the top 4 Expos and I was thinking the same thing with Tim Wallach.. And I just verified.. that 5th spot has to be Wallach.. I'd forgotten just how long he was an Expo (13 years)

The sad thing about Wallach is that he became a whipping boy amongst fans. Totally undeserved imo. He and Raines carried some horrid teams to respectabilty.

Hmmm...fascinating topic there Marcus. It looks like most of the obvious one have been said already. I should really know better in regards to baseball. One possibility would be Frank Robinson, although I'm not sure if he was Red long enough.

Now for some off the beaten path ones:

Martina Navratilova - Czechoslovakia and USA tennis

Alain Prost - McLaren and Williams F1 teams
Michael Schumacher - Ferrari and Bennetton F1 teams
#21 | 535 days ago

Michael Jordan has practiced with the Bobcats to teach them how to improve their skills, that automatically puts him in their all time top 5, in addition to the Bulls & Wizards.

#22 | 535 days ago

All the obvious ones have been said, so I'll go with Clara Hughes.  She is a Canadian athlete who won 2 medals in cycling in the Summer Olympics in 1996, then a Bronze medal in Long Track Speed Skating in 2002 in the Winter Olympics.

Mike Richards ---Flyers (runners up)/ Kings (STANLEY CUP)

Kevin Greene? (I loved him on the Rams)/Steelers

Marcel Dionne----Kings/ Red Wings

Rogie Vachon---Canadians/Kings (it's a total shame he's not in the hall of fame)

Jari Kurri--Oilers/Kings

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? Not sure he makes it in Lakers top 5, but real close.

#25 | 535 days ago

Ron Francis - Whalers and Penguins

Reggie White - Eagles and Packers (all-time sacks leader for both teams)

Darrell Waltrip - Bud Moore and Junior Johnson

*Ken Griffey would be perfect for this, but yearly injuries with the Reds prevents him from being on their top 5 list.

I don't think Dionne is a top 5 Red Wing nor Vachon a top 20 Canadien

I got one that's borderline.. Paul Coffey (Oilers for sure, close with the Penguins IMO)

You're probably right. Dionne's stats are respectable for the Wings. Vachon is pushing it. IN fact, I can probably argue against all of my picks (Kurri on the Kings....not top 5, but I dug him.)


What about Roenick? Did very little with the Kings (jerk), but what about Chicago and Phoenix? Keith Tkachuk? Winnipeg/Phoenix and the Blues?

Red Wings just have so many greats.. Sawchuk, Howe, Lindsay, Abel, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Yzerman, Federov, etc

I don't think Roenick was a top 5 Blackhawk (again, so much history)

I think you can definitely make a case for Tkachuk though

I would like to give you half of a respect. I like the Martina call, but the F1 is not really a sport, so are they "athletes"? I know they are professional drivers, so don't tell me that.

Good call on Reggie White, Kramer. I typed "Reggie White Kramer" at first. That's just one of the blackest white names ever.

I checked this before I posted originally. While Senna drove for four teams overall, only McLaren would he rate as top 5 ever. His first team doesn't exist anymore, and he was there only one year. He died during his first year at Williams. Lotus (the original Lotus, not the recreated one now) he might close, but he didn't win the World Championship there, while these five guys did: Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti. So, not quite.

I was going back and forth on him myself, and decided to dig up his stats...9th on Pittsburgh's all-time scoring list despite playing only 5 seasons with the Pens.  If we're going by scoring he makes the list hands down, but overall I'd say due to the fact that as a Penguin he was a minus every year, averaging out to a -11 for 4 1/2 years in a Penguins uniform.

I didn't think super hard about this...   Just figured that the top two first basement in O history would be Murray and Palmeiro.  Top 5 player overall?  Maybe, maybe not.

Jummy Foxx may not even be a top 5 Red Sox.  Again, thought about the position more than every player who played.  So I could have made some subjective errors here...
