When Leigh Steinberg began his career as a sports agent, they were not even allowed to negotiate with NFL owners. In fact, the industry did not really exist. By the end of the millennium, though, Leigh had become a 'Super Agent,' having his life loosely depicted in Jerry McGuire, representing nearly half of the starting Quarterbacks in the NFL, and ultimately selling his business for tens of millions of dollars. Leigh seemingly had it all until, through a series of circumstances, everything came crashing down. Forced to pick up the pieces, Leigh got sober, rebuilt his business and his life, and has since realigned his priorities. Today, Leigh is back at it, representing future superstars like Patrick Mahomes, writing books, and teaching younger aspiring agents through his academies.

NHL Hall of Fame legend and current LA Kings President, Luc Robitaille, is widely considered one of the greatest Left Wingers to ever play the game. Growing up in Montreal, though, he was largely overlooked by scouts because of what some considered a lack of toughness and slow skating stride. If it were not for a part-time Ottawa scout who convinced the Kings to take a chance on the skinny eighteen year-old in the ninth round of the 1984 draft, Luc may not have been picked at all. By the end of his first season, though, everybody knew Luc's name after notching the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie. In fact, Luc scored forty or more goals in each of his first eight seasons, including three fifty goal seasons during that stretch. Nineteen seasons later, Luc retired as the highest scoring Left Winger in NHL history, notching a Stanley Cup, as well as, being voted in as one of the '100 Greatest Players in NHL History' by his contemporaries. Luc has also won two additional Stanley Cups as an executive with the Kings. Hear about his entire journey, including stories from his six seasons playing with Wayne Gretzky, on this week's episode of Legends of Sport.

In 1968, Jerry Colangelo left Chicago to become the youngest general manager in professional sports for the Phoenix Suns. It was twenty below zero when he left. He arrived with his family to seventy degree weather, Orange Blossoms in the air, nine suitcases, and three hundred bucks in his pocket. He never looked back. Fifty years and five professional franchises later, Jerry is today known as the man who brought Baseball, Hockey, the WNBA, and Arena Football to Arizona. Growing up in a poor neighborhood of Chicago, Jerry has never forgotten his humble beginning. In 2005, Jerry Colangelo was asked to take over a USA Basketball program desperately in need of realignment. He fervently accepted the job on the condition that he'd have full autonomy in order to rebuild the program the right way. They have since gone 75-1 and have won Gold Medals in Beijing, London, and the Rio De Janeiro Olympics. Hear the full story on this week's episode of Legends of Sport.
