List Rules Only athletes. Lane Kiffin counts b/c he played college football. The people you'd want to rob a bank with are at the top of the list.

A list of the best athletes to rob a bank with. Athletes are great for a ton of things, including entertaining, competing, and yes, even robbing a bank. The brute force and cunning competitiveness needed to pull off a successful heist. There are a number necessary skills you need to pull off a robbery without getting caught. The athletes on this list have their warts, but are mostly the guys and gals I'd use if I were to pull off a heist. Keyword here is IF. I'm not advocating any type of crime, this is the old rhetorical question: IF I were to commit a crime, who would I want on my side. 

I'd want a closer like Kobe Bryant on my side. Why would I want to rob a bank with him? He'd take all the credit and leave me behind, so that would be good. There are reasons listed why some of these people, like Tim Tebow and Dale Earnhardt Jr. would make great accomplices.

Take a look chirp in on who you think would be the best athlete to rob a bank with.
