ESPN additionally has an annoying historical past of giving the Arthur Ashe Award for Braveness to questionable recipients, comparable to Caitlyn Jenner (seen in above picture) in 2015, Michael Sam in 2014, Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 2008. Now not do really heroic athletes just like the late Pat Tillman obtain the award.
