We are in the dead of summer. There are no sports today. There won't be any NFL for a while. There may never be an NBA game again.

Where can we sports fans get a fix?

For us diehard fans, there's always ESPN Classic. There, any game in which our favorite teams or players are playing is must-see TV.

However, most fans aren't diehards; they are casual fans who only tune in for the best of the best.

That's why the Lakers get great ratings every year, but the Clippers never do.

As Americans, we are obsessed with fame, gossip and storylines. We want to be entertained.

Thus, I've put together a short-list of those athletes, over the years, who one way or another made themselves into must-see TV for even the most average of fans.

If you find yourself in need of a sports fix, get yourself over to ESPN Classic to watch some of these must-see performers of today and yesteryear.
