The players on the field get the attention, but these front-office executives, reporters and coaches deserve a little bit of the lime light as well.

Jerry Jones - Owner, President and General Manager, Dallas Cowboys
While some Cowboy fans may not enjoy Jerry Jones acting as general manager of America's Team, few could argue that the man isn't entertaining. Especially when he creates new Jerry-isms.

Adam Silver - Commissioner, NBA
Commissioner Silver had to step up to resolve a hard situation just a few months on the job when tape of Donald Sterling making racist comments surfaced during the 2014 season. After Silver's announcement imposing a lifetime ban on Sterling, many players and coaches came out in support of Silver's decision.

Tony LaRussa - Chief Baseball Officer, Arizona Diamondbacks
Tony Larussa loved the game so much, he couldn't stay away after retiring as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. Less than a year on the job, and he's already cleaned (club)house for the Diamondbacks, including firing well-respected manager Kirk Gibson. Whether or not firing Gibson was the right move, you've got to love a person that competitive.
For the record: He is not a bandwagon Grizzlies fan. Just FYI.

You know when this man smiles? When he wins Stanley Cups.

One could not possibly have a photo gallery about the best suits in sports without mentioning Craig Sager.

Steve Ballmer - Owner, Los Angeles Clippers
There may be no person more excited to be a Los Angeles Clipper than new owner Steve Ballmer.

Jeanie Buss - Co-Owner and President, Los Angeles Lakers
As the daughter of the late, great Jerry Buss and fiance of coaching legend Phil Jackson, she could easily be overlooked. But this Buss isn't afraid to speak her mind, even if it is against her family or head coach. Better yet, if she likes you, she will defend you until the end.

Robert Kraft - Owner, New England Patriots and New England Revolution
Robert Kraft is on this list as the owner of the Patriots (apparently, he isn't the best MLS owner out there). He's built a team that is a proven winner and worn fancy shoes in the process.

Mark Cuban - Owner, Dallas Mavericks
How can you not like a man that always speaks his mind? And, he brought us Dirk Nowitzki. And who doesn't love Dirk?

Condoleezza Rice - Board member, College Football Selection Committee
Only a strong person can take all the (ridiculous) backlash that comes with a woman being named to the College Football Selection Committee.

Vince McMahon - Chairman and CEO, WWE
The drama may be fake, but the business is real. Vince McMahon has been a part of the successful empire for a longtime. He even participates in the ring under the super-original wrestling name, Mr. McMahon. And we have to say, we like a man that can admit when he's wrong.

Gregg Popovich - Coach, San Antonio Spurs
There are many reasons to love Coach Pop. 1. He's a proven champion. 2. He's broken down barriors. 3. He's generally happy, and 4. Those interviews.
Earvin 'Magic' Johnson - Co-Owner, Los Angeles Dodgers, Football Club and Sparks
Los Angeles loves Magic Johnson, and Magic Johnson loves Los Angeles. The NBA Hall-of-Famer has invested a lot in the city that he's called home since he was drafted out of Michigan State in 1979. His 2012 purchase of the Dodgers with his fellow owners has seen a new spark in the franchise and his 2014 purchase of the LA Sparks and MLS expansion team will most likely follow suit.
Joe Maddon - Manager, Chicago Cubs
We're fans of any coach that encourages themes on his or her road trips. Let's just hope Maddon keeps up the tradition now that he's in Chicago.

Jay-Z - Owner, Roc Nation Sports
The rapper didn't last very long as owner of the Brooklyn Nets, but he does seem to have found his niche in his newly launched sports management company. He's already landed big-name clients including Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant and Dez Bryant with even bigger names possibly to join in the future.
Billy Beane - General Manager and Minority Owner, Oakland Athletics
His life inspired a Brad Pitt movie. (And you know, changed the way Major League Baseball was managed.) That's pretty awesome.

John Elway - Vice-President of Football Operations and General Manager, Denver Broncos
John Elway joined the Denver front office in 2011, and the franchise has been on the uptick ever since. Namely bringing in an aging quarterback coming off a serious injury to lead the team.

Michael Jordan - Owner, Charlotte Hornets
Granted, his time in Charlotte has not been easy for him, but the NBA legend is making strides. Starting with changing the mascot back to the Hornets.

Dana White - President, UFC
While working as a manager for Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, White saw an opportunity when the UFC organization was put up for sale. Fast forward 10 years later, and White now is the man in charge and face of business that continues to grow in popularity.

Vin Scully - Broadcaster, Los Angeles Dodgers
The legend has been in the Dodgers' broadcast booth for 65 years and counting. Enough said.

Steve Spurrier - Coach, South Carolina Gamecocks
Steve Spurrier has had a long and successful career as a college coach (Let's pretend those NFL years never happened.) and he's never been shy of giving his opinion. Like other coaches on this list, he's always good for a sound bite.
Shaq has had many titles and entrepreneurial endeavors over the years, but NBA team owner seems to fit him nicely. The title even already got him back in the Slam Dunk Contest.

Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley - Owner, Los Angeles Kiss
Arena football is already pretty fun, but adding in two of the biggest rock stars ever takes everything to another level.

Drew Carey - Minority Owner, Seattle Sounders FC
Drew Carey is a big-time soccer fan, so he seems right in his element with the MLS. Carey and the rest of the owners have really created a soccerr-obsessed culture in Seattle. He does lose a few points because he doesn't own a Cleveland team, though, but he quickly gains them back for being part of a team that brought Clint Dempsey back to the States.

Cristiano Ronaldo - Wearer of Suits
Ok, so he's not technically a "suit," but there may be no other person in the sports world that can wear a suit as well as he can.
