Top 5 in MLB, NFL & NBA Now

Here are my top 5 lists for the 3 major sports right now in the United States.

These lists are clearly subjective and based upon what & who I think is clearly great right now.

For me great athletes can be defined as consistent, motivated, mentally tough, gifted, finisher, killer instinctive & competitive to name a few. Now all may not fit everyone one of these, but it is an overall cohesion of these traits.
