Dwyane Wade was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year this week. Wade beat out guys like Tiger Woods and Roger Federer to win the honor. Not much to say on this despite the fact that people are really split on the decision. The poll on SI’s homepage (in the bottom right) shows that 60% of people think there were other deserving guys (namely Federer and Woods) and while I won’t disagree, Wade certainly deserves the honor for his performance in the NBA playoffs. He basically single handedly put his team on his back and carried them through the playoffs and to a championship. Sounds like a deserving candidate to me.
