My pick for Sportsman of the Year
Others who I could see winning? Steph Curry, of course. The Kansas City Royals as a team. The U.S. Women's Soccer Team, or Carli Lloyd for her individual performance in this year's World Cup. Had Ronda Rousey won her bout against Holly Holm last month, I would have considered her a top contender. Jordan Spieth, who came pretty close to an historic year himself. American Pharoah? Well, if they didn't give it to Secretariat, I can't imagine they would give it to any horse.
All would be defensible choices - but for me, the best choice would be Novak and Serena. However it plays out, we'll find out for certain tomorrow.
