In 2006 Stone was the magazine’s NBA editor and says, “I did support the choice of Wade. You often become an advocate for the sport that youre attached to. I fully expectedFederer, actually, to be theSportspersonand I offered Wade up as the suggestion at one point because he was the most obvious candidate within my beat at the time. Crowning The King: LeBron James is Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Sportsperson of the Year Not everyone was so understanding. “I do remember it did come up in some meetings and when it became clear that we were leaning toward Wade overFedererit created a lot of internal awkwardness,” says Stone. One alleged staffer went so far as to write an anonymous post on the message board sportsjournalists.com under the name “Moger,” ripping both the selection of Wade and the man who made it. McDonell knew nothing of that post at the time and says now of the criticism, “That tells me this person didn’t know me or work with me.” McDonell also caught heat for the decision from the outside. no dataHe went onWFANspopularMike and the Mad Dogradio show and parried with the hosts on the matter, partly over their suggestion thatFedererwas not chosen because he supposedly would not be able to attend SIs party to honor the winner, held in mid-December. McDonellrejected that assertion then and today denies that he would have offered to giveFedererthe award if he would show up at the event. That would have been insane, he says. I couldnt allow myself to get in a position where I would say You get it if you do this. I was very conscious of that. The irony is that Wade didnt attend the ceremony either. A toothache that had sent him to the dentist four times in five days and caused him to have a tooth pulled prevented him from traveling to New York, so instead Stone went to Wades house in south Florida with a camera crew to present him the award and have the video shown at the event.
