Josh Beckett was just nominated for an ESPY award in the "Best Championship Performance" category. The other athletes nominated in that category are Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, and Brad Richards.

 

Jack McKeon was also nominated in the best Coach/Manager category, the others nominated were Admin Brown, Bill Belichek, and Geno Aueriemma.

 

The 2003 Marlins were nominated for an ESPY award in the "Best Upset" category. The other teams/athletes nominated were Antonio Tarver (Boxer) , Birdstone (horse that beat Smarty Jones), and the Pistons. The Marlins had better win this category, because it's definitely the best upset of the year.

 

The 2003 Marlins were just nominated in the "Best Team" category. The other teams in the category are the Patrios, Husky BBall Men, Husky BBall Women, and the Pistons.

 

Vote for the Marlins in these 4 categories @ www.espn.com

I dunno man, the Pistons winning the Finals was a huge upset, bigger than Marlins over Yankees, but is the Marlins' whole run considered an "upset"?

Pretty much every true basketball fan that actually followed the NBA season all last year knew the Pistons were going to be serious championship contenders along with the Pacers, especially when they got Rasheed Wallace so while they totally dominated the Lakers, it wasn't a big surprise.

 

A team like the Hawks, Warriors, etc. winning the NBA championship over the Lakers is comparable to the huge upset of the Marlins over the Yankees, but not the Pistons because they were championship contenders to begin with. The Pistons set many NBA records throughout the season such as most consecutive games of holding opponents under 70 points, etc. and they also had that huge winning streak, it really wasn't a surprise that they beat the Lakers, the only big surprise was how badly they beat them and that's it.

 

The Pistons beating the Lakers in the finals is like the Braves beating the Yankees or something along those lines, yes it's significant, but not more significant than a small market team with one of the lowest payrolls in the league which was just barely trying to survive winning it.

the marlins should get bigest upset because when before the world series when the marlins were playing the cubs every one though they had no chance in winning that series when the marlins were down 3 games to 1.and after that eveyone though the yanks were gonna to kill the marlins in the world series.the pistons were also a huge upset but i dont think bigger than the marlins

Kornheiser and Wilbon are going to debate all the nominees now, should be interesting to hear what they say about the Fish.

 

Put on ESPN right now!

 

EDIT: Kornheiser forgot that Josh Beckett was a nominee and couldn't even remember his name, lol. They both picked Phil Mickelson :( .

Problem is the media portrayed it as a bigger upset which is why they win. Beckett is probably the most likely to win out of all of them I think
