On a personal level, there aren't a whole lot of professional athletes that stand out as particularly friendly or likable. Which is fine because we're not talking about a beauty pageant here and no one is giving out a Miss Congeniality award.

The point being that we don't expect athletes to be nice, which is why it's such a nice surprise when they are. Unfortunately, all the personality in the world doesn't ultimately matter one bit if the talent and ability aren't up to par.
