Top Athletes You've Seen Live/Want to See Live?

Alright, this was inspired by a tweet I made tonight that nobody on planet Earth is gonna reply to where I asked what five NBA players you haven't seen that you want to. So I'll include those below, but who are the most impressive athletes (any sport) you've seen live, and which are you most dying to see play?

Seen:
Reggie Miller (Pacers in '96 - he wasn't amazing that night but seeing one of the best basketball players in the league when I was six years old was fucking insane)
Shaquille O'Neal (Heat)
Tim Duncan (Spurs)
Manu Ginobili (Spurs)
Tony Parker (Spurs)
Chris Paul (Hornets)
Danny Granger (Pacers)
John Wall (UK, annihilating my Hoosiers)
Chris Carpenter (Cardinals, annihilating my Redlegs)
Barry Larkin (Reds, many times back in the day)
Terrelle Pryor (OSU, annihilating my Hoosiers)
Jordan Shipley (Bengals) (no, seriously, this kid's going to be amazing - impressed me more than any Bengal I've seen)
Tommy Haas (Germany, tennis at the ATP tournament in Cincinnati in like '02, mainly because we were front row. Dude's an athlete.)

Want to See:
LeBron James
Kevin Love
Blake Griffin
Deron Williams (seeing 12/20!)
Kevin Durant
Michael Vick (so explosive, gotta see him once)
Ndamukong Suh
Rick Nash (never been to a hockey game and he's my favorite hockey player, so there you go)
Tim Lincecum (my favorite non-Red to watch pitch on TV)

I've seen him play for nearly three seasons and still don't see what everyone else sees in this guy. Maybe it's bias, but I don't think he's special at all.

Seen:

Barry Sanders
Joe Dumars
Steve Yzerman
Sergei Federov
Donovan McNabb (when he was in college)
Tom Brady
Peyton Manning
Anthony Thomas (when he was in college with Michigan)
Charles Woodson (both college and pro)
Pavel Datsyuk
Henrik Zetterberg
Alan Trammell
Roy Halladay
Miguel Cabrera

Would like to see:

Alex Ovechkin
Steven Stamkos
Albert Pujols
Tim Lincecum
Michael Vick
Kevin Durant

That's all for now.

Favorite was definitely seeing Jeremy Roenick play with the Sharks against my Flyers in February '08. So glad I got to see Roenick before he retired.

He was a good player for a while. Phoenix had some good teams when he and Keith Tkachuk were there, they just never put it together.

Him playing with the Flyers is what got me into the team and hockey, I've always loved him. Really loved seeing him on the Winter Olympics hockey coverage earlier this year.

What I'd really like is to be able to go back and watch the Don James era of UW football (1975-1992). I'd give anything to be able to see the days when we were a perennial power in the PAC-10.

If you can't tell, I like college sports.
