Is Kevin Durant the “awesomest” dude of the year?

ESPN’s SportsNation wants you to decide in an online poll.

Voting for the first round of eight nominees ends today.

Durant is matched up against L.A. Clippers forward Blake Griffin. Other matchups include Tim Tebow versus Jared Allen, Hope Solo versus Travis Pastrana and MMA/UFC fighter Jon “Bones” Jones versus The Rock.

Pretty tough first-round opponent for KD. But the Thunder’s star shouldn’t have a problem prevailing. Griffin had a nice 2011. But his body of work pretty much consists of winning the dunk contest and a slew of spectacular in-game slams. His off-the-court performance, save a few comedic videos, needs a lot of work in order to be considered more awesome than KD.

The four winners of round one will be announced today on SportsNation, the one-hour show airing weekdays at 4 p.m. on ESPN2.

Go vote!
