Tiger's win tops Rondo, Santana

This past week was busy in sports. The Kings took a 3-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. The Celtics and Thunder each tied their playoff series at 2-2, and then the Thunder went up 3-2 on the road. New York Mets fans saw the first no-hitter in franchise history, and the Florida Gators had a no-no in the NCAA baseball tournament. There were plenty of upsets at the French Open, and Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus at Nicklaus' tournament. Jimmie Johnson controlled the Monster Mile ... and so much more.

But it was Tiger's history-making win at the Memorial that landed him the top spot in this week's rankings. Woods tied Nicklaus with 73 career PGA Tour wins as Nicklaus looked on from the 18th green. The TV ratings from the Memorial were up big from last year, proving that Tiger still moves the needle.

But should that have been enough to push him past the first 44-point, 8-rebound, 11-assist game in NBA playoff history? Or the first no-hitter by a New York Met? That's what our panel decided. Let your voice be heard in the comments, and if you impress the panel, you could be chosen as a guest ranker for next week.

2012 Cross-Sport Power Rankings panel: Sara Walsh, John Buccigross, Robert Flores, Michael Smith, Bram Weinstein, Mike Hill, Jorge Andres, Charissa Thompson, DJ Gallo, Jim Basquil, Kevin Connors, Jeff MacGregor and Steve Weissman.
