As a center for the Seattle SuperSonics, Nick Collison is mostly known for his hustle and intelligent play. But away from the court, I've come to know Nick Collison as a television connoisseur, specifically reality programs which air on MTV.

While traveling with the Sonics, Collison keeps up with his favorite shows via his Tivo, Slingbox and a laptop.

With summer providing him ample time to immerse himself in MTV, we asked Collison for his five favorite MTV shows.

1. Rob and Big: They are hilarious and I'm jealous of their life. Plus, Big Black has shared his ideas on manpons and protecting the fins. My favorite parts are cameos by Uncle Jerry.

2. Cribs: An MTV classic. They need to get a lot more new episodes. Some of the homes are really cool. Its also fun to see the tacky stuff some people spend a lot of money on.

3. Run's House: I love the kids. They are hilarious.

4. The Hills: I doubt a lot of guys in the NBA would admit they watch a show about the everyday lives of these people, with storylines such as, "Can Heidi and LC coexist with Spencer around?" Or, "Will Whitney get promoted?" But the unintentional comedy from dudes like Spencer, Jason and Brody is just too high for me to delete this from my Tivo season pass.

5. Two A Days: I'm constantly shocked by how important high school football is in the South. And Rush Probst is a master motivator.

Send us your list of favorite MTV shows from the past and present.

I don't watch MTV, and haven't ever since they basically stopped showing music videos. They need to change their name. The channel has sold out. All of the programming on MTV is trash.
No love for Celebrity Deathmatch?

What about "Pimp My Ride?" Well, at least he didn't put "My Super Sweet 16." Those idiot 16 year olds are really spoiled and selfish. We're probably looking at the future Paris Hiltons.

Here's my list and it's pretty short:

1. NONE!

What's the name of the channel... "MUSIC" Television! I havn't watched MTV since they really stopped playing music in the 90's since they opted for The Real World over "REAL MUSIC" programming.

Shame on you MTV! SHAME on you! EVERYONE used to watch MTV back in the day and now all you're doing is creating another generation that will be hypnotized and obsessed with shows like american idol and survivor. SHAME!

MTV really needs to change their name. There is really nothing musical about the station anymore.
