Sportsman of the Year Candidates

Sports Illustrated invited its writers to nominate candidates for their annual Sportsman of the Year award. The award often goes to athlete at the peak of his/her career or after s/he has made a great contribution outside the competitive arena.

I found it interesting that SI's top NBA writer, Jack McCallum, nominated Greensboro' Joey Cheek, after China revoked his visa just before the Olympic games in Beijing. I will be surprised if SI names Cheek this year, since they missed a golden opportunity to do so two years ago.
