Fabforum We have done this before, when we asked you to pick your 10 greatest Lakers and 10 greatest Dodgers. Now we turn our attention to all sports by asking all L.A. Times readers to contribute their list of the 10 greatest sports figures in L.A. history.

AnyoFabforumne with ties to L.A. sports is eligible, so not only is Magic Johnson eligible, but so also is Chick Hearn. Sandy Koufax is eligible, along with Vin Scully. Any sport, any team. Marcel Dionne? Lisa Leslie? Pom Pom Mom? All eligible.

List your choices for the 10 greatest, in order, either in the comment field, or by emailing Fabulous Forum editor Houston Mitchell. Points will be assigned for each spot on the ballot, with first place getting 12 points, second place 10, third place 8, fourth 7, etc., down to one point for 10th place.

Voting will last for a week, with the top 10 to be unveiled beginning Oct. 10.
