This is a hard one when you like 'em all! I like the way Xavier Henry is always grinning.

This subject may be simplistic and juvenile, but like your name, it's fun. I like it.

I'll go with Brady. Maximizes his talent, makes great hustle plays and great smart plays, plays great defense. I find him giving my heart the least amount of a workout during games.

This guy.

He's a competitor. He's a winner. He's tough. He doesn't back down, he doesn't make excuses. With his background, he had every reason to fail; yet he is a brilliant success.
You always get his best effort. He cares about the program. He cares about his teammates. He's prepared, and at crunch time, you don't have to look for him because he's already in front of you.
He's the kind of player you can point at and tell your son, "watch him play this game."

I like the Highlander Angus Sher'ron McCollins. Still 3 or 4 of the greatest all-time hustle plays I have ever seen in any sport on any level.

Actually it would be Mario Chalmers for me. You did not specify former or current.

We would have never won the '08 national championship without Sherron. Sherron never gave up in that game. He sure hates to lose, that's for sure!

B_of_H would've picked up Ty. Why not? He has as much potential as anyone.

But Marcus is making his potential the reality right now. It's hard to ignore.

OK, I'm going to go with the "current" as it'd be too hard to pick from the "former" players.

When DJ left, Sherron became my favorite and I'm still true to that!

...though if I were to pick a "surprise" favorite, I'd have to go with Mr. Marcus Morris!!

Sherron. He's absolutely fearless. How many times did Texas bigs swat his shots/passes last night and he still took it into the lane time and time again.

I'm not gonna lie, I got on this thread to put Tyshawn, and he is my favorite Jayhawk on this team. Here's why.

Slashers are my favorite basketball players. Post players do that post thing, and perimeter players do that perimeter thing, but slashers -they do it both.

A slasher's got to be able to hit the outside shot, otherwise everyone will just play off and dare it. A slasher's also got to be able to bang with the big boys and put his body on the line. But the thing about slashers is, they're the artists of the basketball world. They're the ones who improvise and create.

Now Tyshawn's not the only slasher on this team, in fact I think that Collins is much better at consistantly driving. I've seen X drive well, and Morningstar, and Marcus had that coast to coast against UT that got me off the couch. But for some reason, Tyshawn is the only player I would call a slasher. He reminds me of Langford that way, and Langford was my favorite Jayhawk when I was in school.

And for some reason, I don't mind his faults. Like his turnovers, when Taylor turns the ball over, he does it with gusto. A turnover's a turnover so you might as well make it spectacular when you do it, Taylor's turnovers wind up in the band section and I love that (as much as I could love a turnover). And I don't mind the fight. Who gives a [censored]. I got into fights in college. I get into fights now. You know what that makes Tyshawn? A fighter. And I like fighters. I also love his backstory. The kid's come through a lot to be here, and I feel like most people on this board don't give a damn, and that's too bad.

I'm not lying he's my favorite player on this team.

Plus he hits his free throws, I hate it when players can't make free throws.

Also, my favorite player all time is Ryan Robertson.
