Everyone loves an underdog. From David and Goliath to “The Little Guy” they are fun to root for against all odds. SBNation is doing a theme week on Underdogs and I thought I’d open it up as a topic?
What players (you know, in addition to Isaiah Thomas) stick out to you as underdogs? Nate Robinson? Not all underdogs are little either. Right Big Baby?
What about teams that overachieved and won your heart? Perhaps the 2002 Celtics and their epic comeback win in the Eastern Conference Finals? Or perhaps the 2018 team that lost Hayward and Irving but almost upset LeBron James (dunking on him in the process)?
What other teams or players stick out to you?
