2011 M Awards: Favorite Athlete

OK, Memphis you have me really wondering this time around… How does Zach Randolph beat Derrick Rose in the Favorite Basketball Player (Rose finished fourth there) category but somehow in a rematch of the two, Rose takes the prize for Favorite Athlete? The first person that makes sense of this one gets a prize that few have ever received — my undying gratitude..

Derrick Rose, Chicago BullsFirst Place: 27.70%
Zach Randolph, Memphis GrizzliesSecond Place: 20.27%
Rudy Gay, Memphis Grizzlies, Third Place: 14.19%
Best Write-in Vote: Memphis Larry
