Top Athletes - Last Names Starting with "T" - Post 1980

For now, "S" is for skip, so on to "T".  "T" is for terrifying, as in I am terrified of the Top 2 on this list.

10. Fred Taylor (NFL)
9.  Joe Thornton (NHL)
8.  Jim Thome (MLB)
7.  Derrick Thomas (NFL)
6.  Frank Thomas (MLB)
5.  Thurman Thomas (NFL)
4.  LaDainian Tomlinson (NFL)
3.  Isiah Thomas (NBA)
2.  Mike Tyson (Boxing)
1.  Lawrence Taylor (NFL)

The original LT earns the top spot, edging out Iron Mike in the battle of troubled sports icons.  Taylor changed the NFL game and was the greatest linebacker of my generation.  Tyson's dominance was also legendary, but faded in his post prison comeback attempts.  Isiah earns the honor as Top Thomas, leading a pack of 4 greats with that surname.  The underrated Fred Taylor gets the final spot over Al Toon.
