Default Espy's: Best team of 09

A: Philadelphia Phillies > 92-70, Defeated Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 in World Series

B: Pittsburgh Steelers > 12-4, Deafeated Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in Super Bowl 43

C: Pittsburgh Penguins > 45-28-9, Defeated Detroit Red Wings 4-3 In Stanley Cup Finals

D: Los Angeles Lakers > 65-17, Defeated Orlando Magic 4-1 in Nba Finals



homer pick-phillies

objective pick-lakers

i would rank them like this

1) lakers-dominant all year
2) phillies-destroyed everyone in the playoffs. most dominant team by far in the post season.
3) penguins-probably had the toughest road of all 4 teams
4) steelers-pretty weak year in the nfl. they beat the cardinals in the super bowl

Homer pick- Phillies
Objective pick- Steelers


The Lakers playing like **** vs. a Rockets team without Yao/McGrady/Mutombo won't let me call them the "best team". But I think the Lakers end up winning it anyway.

Because otherwise a baseball team would never be able to win this award. I doubt "Best Team of '09" is the actual title since it's only June. Maybe I'm wrong but if so they should change the name.

Also are the UNC Tar Heels and Florida Gators in the category?

How do you figure, when the Hurricanes beat the Bruins who had the second most points in the NHL (and the #1 seed in the east). The Pens were just on a roll after beating the Caps..

Same Cardinals that beat your Eagles and who participated in what was a top 5 Super Bowl of all time.
