ESPN Who's Now: Final 8

Here's the Final 8 for ESPN's "Who's Now" athlete tournament:

July 25: Jordan final: Tiger Woods vs. LaDainian Tomlinson
July 26: Ali final: Peyton Manning vs. Alex Rodriguez
July 27: King final: LeBron James vs. Derek Jeter
July 28: Ruth final: Shaquille O'Neal vs. Tom Brady

My guess will be that this comes down to Tiger Woods vs Lebron James, but A-Rod has an outside shot. Lebron was recently the host of the ESPY's, just propelled his team into the NBA Finals, and will be hosting the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. (I'm also biased towards the NBA, hence the blog).

Tiger Woods is constantly in the news as he dominates many golf tournaments. He and his wife had a new baby recently. Tiger has a ton of good endorsement deals with various products ranging from golf accessories to automobiles. He's considered to have made golf fun to watch again and encouraged people to play the sport more.

I feel Lebron is the future though and can continue to amaze spectators and put fans into seats at games. The question of the recent ref scandal and will it affect this vote should be interesting. The fans had no choice but to vote for an NBA player in Shaq vs Tony Parker, but now it will get interesting.

The champion of the Who's Now tournament will be decided on July 31, 2007.
