Some panel members argued for Jimmer Fredette at No. 1 this week. And looking at his box scores (specifically the SDSU game), it's not hard to see why. Other panel members fought for Blake Griffin at the top spot. And if you watch any Clippers highlight, that's not exactly hard to figure out either. Ultimately, it came down to this: What were the stakes? Is a giant performance in a regular-season NBA or college hoops game as big of a win as the Australian Open or X Games? In the end, the panel decided no. Which is why Kim Clijsters, Novak Djokovic and Shaun White were rewarded the top three spots in our rankings this week.
