Best Sports Moments of 2003

Jean-Sebastien got giggy, Lebron made his mark, and Tim did some dunkin'. Kidzworld looks at the best sports moments of 2003.

Jean-Sebastien Gets Giggy

Jean-Sebastien Giguere took the Anaheim Mighty Ducks from Hollywood fantasy to NHL reality. The Ducks' goalie was a human wall and took Anaheim to within one win of the Stanley Cup. Jean-Sebastien Giguere finished the playoffs with five shutouts and a goals against average of 1.62. Giguere also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Lance Armstrong is a Tour de Force

Lance Armstrong was a Tour de Force at the Tour de France. Armstrong won his fifth straight Tour de France in 2003, giving him a place in history as one of the greatest cyclists ever. Not too bad for a guy who was given only a 40% chance of surviving cancer six years ago.

Tim Duncan Dunks the Nets

The New Jersey Nets simply had no answer for power forward, Tim Duncan in the 2003 NBA Finals. Duncan was a one-man wrecking crew for the San Antonio Spurs and led the team to their second NBA Title in four years. Tim Duncan was named MVP for the series and helped teammate David Robinson finish his career with another Championship ring.

The Florida Marlins Win the World Series

The Florida Marlins victory in the World Series was probably the biggest surprise in 2003. After a brutal start to the season, Jack McKeon was brought in as the team's new manager and the Marlins never looked back. Florida defeated the San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs, before beating the much-favored New York Yankees in the World Series. Josh Beckett pitched a shutout to clinch the win for the Marlins and was named the Series' MVP.

Lebron James Makes His Mark
Before Lebron James had even played one minute of pro basketball, he was already a multi-millionaire, thanks to his $70-million dollar shoe contract with Nike. Just a few months after going to his senior prom, James made his pro basketball debut with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The high school phenom is average more than 19 points per game with the Cavs and James' jersey is the number one seller in the NBA.
