Great athletes always carry a laundry list of accomplishments: Records broken, foes dispatched, championships won. They are the glimmering spots on any resume.
But then, there are the singular moments.
The ones that tell their admirers or haters more than any trophy can. The ones that show real character; a person's true self. The ones that, in hundreds of years, grandparents will still tell their kids about seeing.
They are all different: some are singular moments, some are entire series and some are just unfortunate luck. Nevertheless, they are the most memorable of the superstar's legacy and have to be remembered.
So, relive the past.
Note: These are not ranked, because there can be no standard of one being more important than the next. These are 50 of the best, but feel free to suggest others.
