ESPY Awards 2017

Updated: June 23, 2017

Every year the ESPY Awards give honors to the best athletes in the business. They nominate a few athletes in each category and then fans can vote online. There are some exciting picks in some of the categories. Here’s the categories I am most excited about.

BEST MALE ATHLETE: Both Russel Westbrook and Michael Phelps top this category. I think both deserve it but Russel Westbrook has done so much in such a short time that I think it goes to him.

BEST FEMALE ATHLETE: Simone Biles and Serena Williams top this category for me but Simone Biles is unreal in gymnastics and I would like to see the award go to her.

BEST CHAMPIONSHIP PERFORMANCE: Hands down Kevin Durant should win this one. He had 30+ points in all 5 games. He was full on beast mode.

BEST BREAKTHROUGH ATHLETE: Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys. I don’t need to explain this one. He is the greatest rookie QB ever!

BEST NFL PLAYER: Tom Brady and Ezekiel Elliot top the category but the award should go to Zeke. He is the best rookie running back out there!!

BEST NBA PLAYER: Tough call. KD,Lebron,Westbrook,Harden and Leonard all made the cut. I think Lebron will win because he can play any position. (He’s not my choice though.)

Best Fighter and Best International Athlete: Conor McGregor is nominated for both of these awards and I would LOVE to see him win both! He is awesome. Check him out on youtube.

There are a lot more categories and a lot of great athletes nominated. You can vote online
at Check out the award show on July 12th on ABC. This year’s host is Peyton Manning. Good luck to all the nominees!
