List RulesVote up the most talented athletes signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports agency

Every athlete signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports has had a hand in helping the hip-hop mogul establish his sports agency as a premier destination for both established and up-and-coming athletes. Star athletes across basketball, baseball, and boxing like Kyrie Irving, Yoenis Cespedes, and Andre Ward have entrusted their careers to Jay-Z as Roc Nation Sports clients and they have been repaid with money and prestige. 

Jay-Z formed Roc Nation Sports in 2013 by an agreement with talent agency Creative Arts Agency, and the agency's first big move was to sign baseball star Robinson Cano. Among the other early top clients signed to Roc Nation were the NFL's Victor Cruz and Geno Smith and WNBA player Skylar Diggins-Smith.

So who are the best players signed to Roc Nation Sports? Which players will help define the Roc Nation Sports legacy in the coming years, and maybe more important to Jay-Z's bottom line, which athletes are likely to attract more talent to the Roc Nation Sports roster?
