In case anybody doesn't know, since I didn't until I heard about it this year, the ESPY Awards are sort of like the Academy Awards of sports.

Yao got nominated for "Breakthrough Athlete of the Year."

And I think he should win it. What I find ridiculous is that Lebron James also got nominated. I think he's a breakthrough athlete for high-school sports, and he's already made a commercial impact in the NBA but he still hasn't played a single professional season yet and the ESPY awards are all about the achievements of an entire Pro Sport Season.

Personally, I think Yao is much more deserving of the award, considering the criticism he was facing, the obstacles he overcame, and commercial changes his presence alone instilled.
