Derek Jeters greatest quality mostly couldnt be seen, only heard. Malik Hooker Jersey . If you were around him enough, you listened to him say many times that youre either playing -- or youre hurt. His message: If you take the field with an injury, youre 100 percent.Jeter never made excuses, which, because he was the New York Yankees captain and one of the greatest players of all time, made it essentially impossible for anyone on the Yankees 25-man roster to offer alibis. His maniacal obsession with winning, combined with a mostly placid outward demeanor, helped create a calm during so many October playoff storms -- and even one quite memorable one in November -- that helped lead to five Yankees championships.He was a product of the dynastic Yankees -- and they were a product of him. Their success is all really chicken-and-egg stuff. Thats why grading Jeter as an individual player can be looked at through so many different lenses. His exceptionalism was wrapped around his teams success. While many times it ended in October glory, it began in the attitude he brought to spring training, arriving early, setting the attitude for his team. From a reporters perspective, he wasnt the most interesting person to talk to -- politely aloof is how Ive often described him to friends. He was very careful when sharing his thoughts, objecting to questions with any negative connotations. It was all about building a confident, positive attitude, which permeated his championship teams. Jeter, of course, needed talent around him, but his leadership was a vital ingredient.So how do you judge something you cant see? If, like Ernie Banks (No. 46 on our list), Jeter played for hapless Cubs teams that never sniffed a title, would he be remembered as a sort of Craig Biggio-type -- a Hall of Fame player based on his 3,000-plus hits, but not much more?If he were on the Baltimore Orioles teams of Cal Ripken Jr. (No. 47 on our list), would the fact that Jeter hit 23 or more homers just twice, while Ripken averaged 23 per 162 games during his career make it impossible to rank Jeter ahead of the Iron Man?There are arguments for why Jeter is just where he belongs -- at No. 51 -- and arguments for why he should be above Banks and Ripken instead. But what should not be held against him is all his magical moments, as if they happened by chance or luck in the context of his teams successes.Yes, he has had more postseason opportunities -- with the expanded playoffs coinciding with his career -- than anyone in baseball history, but he took full advantage of them. So he has The Flip, the Mr. November home run and the Jeffrey Maier game to help build his legend.And he didnt save his flair all for the postseason. He had the bloody catch against the Red Sox, when he ran full-steam into the stands. His 3,000th hit was a home run, on a 5-for-5 day. His final hit at Yankee Stadium was a walk-off single, a trademark one-hopper through the right side.He could be selfish, at times. He could have stood up for Alex Rodriguez at certain points in their tenure as Yankees teammates, but the captain of the franchise chose personal animosity over siding with a valuable and vulnerable teammate, whom the fans were pummeling.Despite his nearly flawless reputation, Jeter could be outlandish. After finishing an almost $200 million contract, he demanded the same rate, though the quality of his play at the end of his career had diminished to the point where there was no free-agent market for him.But, despite some hiccups, he was all about the team. He didnt care all that much about personal accomplishments; his stated goal was to match Yankees legend Yogi Berra for most World Series rings. Berra won 10; Jeter made it halfway there.Jeters attitude separated him from many of his peers, but he could also play. If you believe he never used performance-enhancing drugs, as most presume, you could make a real argument he deserved to be a lot higher up this list because we know many of his competitors -- yes, and teammates -- were juicing. That makes what Jeter did on the field that much more impressive.Jeter never won a regular-season MVP, a batting or home run title. He did collect 3,465 hits, sixth all time -- one tangible in which he beats both Banks and Ripken.I never covered Banks or Ripken, so I cant say first-hand what type of attitude they brought to the park. I witnessed Jeters often. If you were starting an all-time team, you could pick Banks or Ripken or A-Rod as your starting shortstop. Ultimately, I would probably take their superior tangibles over Jeters intangibles. However, you couldnt go wrong if you had the Yankees No. 2 as your No. 1, either. Darius Leonard Jersey . The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. Peyton Manning Jersey . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. ... ft-Jersey/ . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. MINNEAPOLIS -- With a roster full of some of the best young talent in the league and a new, playoff-tested coach to lead them, the Minnesota Timberwolves entered this season as a trendy pick to finally end a 12-year postseason drought.Ten games into this still-young season, Tom Thibodeau finally erupted after watching his team give away yet another double-digit lead in a loss to the Charlotte Hornets that dropped them to 3-7.Its not that the Timberwolves are losing games this season that has angered him. Its how they are losing them, with the same mistakes occurring over and over again, particularly during the third quarter of nearly every game.A big part of learning is trial and error. So when you go through something and it doesnt work, you should learn from it, Thibodeau said after a 115-108 loss to the Hornets on Tuesday. The second time around, it shouldnt be the same way. That has to change and it has to change fast.The Timberwolves have been one of the best offensive teams in the league this season, with Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns and Zach LaVine all showing skills that have fans cautiously hopeful that the franchise is finally ready to return to relevancy.But they have been a disaster on defense and atrocious after halftime. They have been outscored by 91 points in their 10 third quarters this season, by far the worst margin in the league. Only one game this season have they outscored their opponent in that period -- a 36-point win over Memphis in which the Grizzlies were resting stars Mike Conley and Marc Gasol.The devastating ball movement that leads to wide open shots disappears, too. Thibodeau said his players start holding and dancing with the ball, which bogs down the flow. Contested jumpers lead to missed shots, which open up transition opportunities for their opponents.The defense at the rim and on the perimeter is nonexistent. Layups, dunks and 3-pointers rain down on their heaads as they scramble to get things under control. LeRaven Clark Jersey. Wash, rinse, repeat.Were playing really well and it just turns and ruins the whole game, LaVine said Wednesday. It ruins all our spirits. Going into the next game, you feel like youve got it figured out. Were up 15, 12 points and were going good and its a nosedive.The results are familiar to fans. Target Center announced just 10,349 fans for the game against the Hornets on Tuesday. Average attendance during the five homes games is just over 13,000 per game in a building that holds close to 20,000, certainly not what the organization expected in the highly anticipated run-up to the season.There are only so many promotions, so many giveaways, so many marketing tools the business side can use to sell tickets and spur interest. With a team that has been bad for this long, the fans are going to make them prove that things are different before they start investing.This is the best team Ive ever been around, said point guard Ricky Rubio, in his sixth season with the Wolves. I get mad thinking that were wasting time. Were not learning. Its time to change.The Wolves do have things to comfort them. They are the best team in the league in point differential in the first quarter, first in 3-point shooting percentage and fourth in offensive efficiency. Thibodeau is considered a defensive mastermind, so it could just be a matter of time before his new charges start to execute his system the way he wants to see it done.But if they do want to make the playoffs and end that interminable drought, they know they have to get going soon.There is no easy way out. Its work, Thibodeau said. Were more than capable of doing it. We just have to get it done.---This story has been corrected to show third quarter combined deficit is 91 points.
