    That last one was hard... I really wanted to include Heyward (and Kyrie Irving for that matter). Also have several players I'd like to toss into the best athlete category, but none would have a chance to make it past nominations and I can't make up my mind on just two :p

    Nominations will be closed at the end of the day tomorrow, midnight Eastern Time

    I'm surprised I got nominated for anything since I'm not on here very often. :p

    I suppose that depends on which one of Integral's teams you count. Since he's a Steelers fan it's hard to feel too bad for him. :p I'd rather say xblackout, since she is an Indians, Cavs and Browns fan.

    Nominations are now closed.

    I'll work up the list of who made the cut for the voting round shortly, and then post that and open voting :)

    EDIT: also, if I have any questions about a nomination, I'll PM the person in question.

    CRAP! I forgot to do nominations.

    For posterity, Aroldis Chapman for rookie, by a mile. (105 of them in an hour)

    Four votes is better than two... but still pretty sad. Thus, I'm extending the deadline for 5 extra days. Get your votes in, people!

    Can I use Laker (or Dodger) colors in my name? Supporter of the year here! :p Seriously, though, thanks to any of you who voted for me...........I really appreciate it. You guys have no idea how bad I want to be a season ticket holder for the Dodgers & Lakers, and to be known for being the male Dyan Cannon for both teams (a silly as that may sound). Also, much congrats McClain!=D= Ever since you've started to post again on a regular basis (I had no idea who you were 3 years ago), you've made this forum a better place. Thank you for that. :)

    Thanks Tunick. :) If it wasn't for The Arena, I probably wouldn't be on the JC at all, so this forum is definitely a special place.
