Now normally, I hate when SI cheapens out and makes a whole team or more than one person SPOTY, but if sports are done for the year and they wanted to make every athlete that donated to fight COVID-19 the winner, I’d make an obvious exception.
But let’s assume it can only be ONE person. With a limited less-than-four-month sample who would you award it to? Here’s some candidates:
Great playoff run, and Super Bowl winner, Kansas City’s first in 50 years. The future face of the sport. My personal #1 candidate.
May just yet singlehandedly revive the heavyweight division with a decisive rematch win over rival Detontay Wilder.
The Greek Freak lead the Milwaukee Bucks to 53-12 record and a likely NBA championship before getting injured right before the season suspension.
Connor MacDavid OR Leon Draisatl
Ranked 1-2 in points this NHL season, and leading the Edmonton Oilers to a possible deep Stanley Cup run.
What about soccer? Woman athletes? Other sports we are missing? Baseball is obviously out.
