Kobe Bryant may have lost his "Best Player in the League" title to LeBron James (or maybe not... what do you guys think?), but he's still #1 in the only category that matters to a true GearHead:
Most Popular NBA Jersey.

FYI: Did you know Kobe's jersey has been #1 every month since the start of the 2008-09 season!?! Take THAT LeBron!

For 20 years, Junior Seau made his job as an NFL linebacker look easy. He was first-team All-Pro seven times for the San Diego Chargers, and most recently he was an important role player for the New England Patriots, helping them to Super Bowl XLII.

Poof! Just like that, the regular season means nothing. Sure, a couple teams get another week of rest, but now the playoffs are here and everyone is 0-0. Six seeds can beat top seeds, road teams can topple home teams, everything is on the line in every game. With that in mind, let’s see how the teams stack up heading into the Super Bowl tournament. Don’t worry, since I’m a Bears fan, I’ll rank the teams that didn’t make the playoffs, too.
