Watch: Doug E. Fresh Helps ESPN Count Down The Best Sports Dougie Dances.

A little while back, we shared with you our favorite Dougie dance renditions from 2010 -- a list that contained its fair share of sports stars. Well, this morning, we stumbled across a clip from ESPN that pretty much covers the same ground, while solely focusing on sports stars and forgoing adorable pandas. Their list does, oddly enough, contain a wolf, though.

More important, perhaps, is that the crew of commentators, which includes former Morning News and Times-Herald scribe Skip Bayless, had some help in this bit: The rapper for which the dance was named, Doug E. Fresh, visited the studio to talk a little bit about the dance's inspiration and to help grade the renditions shown.

Give it a watch after the jump.
