Shane because his stroke is sick, Earl because he doesn't give a damn about the world and makes every shot regardless, Yang because the guy isn't afraid of anything and has ridiculous composure

Efren because, well, he's Efren. Yukio because his stroke is also unreal, and for anybody who hasn't seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsy7AGbX37k

Keith, because he is........ Keith. :thumbup:

I like his personality at the table, like his uncommon stroke and how he moves the ball around. Just entertaining to watch!

Mike Sigel - When Mike is on he is so fun to watch. Plus he has a little showmanship.

I have a lot of local favorites, i.e., Pookie, Baby Huey, Parks, Jennifer, Koren Lee, Hadji. But nowadays, it's Keith. Who didn't know that! :p

Wade Crane in dead stroke was a wonderfull thing to behold--run out king--and Irving Crane (wonder if they had kin folk) was the best at standing and doing what was called for....

When was that? I am not sure there was ever a time when Joyner was actually the best 1-pocket player on the planet. Got a year or two you would claim noone could beat him? Not Parica, Efren, Varner, Allen, Mathews, not anyone?

I tip my hat to Nick Varner

I won't say best ever. But the man has always been my idol in this game.

He isn't possessed of some supernatural ability that just carried him to the top. He always just struck me as an ordinary guy that played his heart out every shot. He worked super hard on his game and willed his way to the top, for a while dominated not just in 9 ball but all disciplines.

Best of all, he is the most humble and down to earth player out there. Always a good word to say about the other players, never making excuses.

I know he is hall of fame, and I know he has many records. But I still think he deserves more credit as he is such an outstanding representative of the game.
