LeBron James is Sports Illustrated 2012 Sportsman of the Year
“He was the most dominant athlete this year – MVP of the NBA regular season, MVP of the NBA playoffs, led the Heat to the NBA championship and Team USA to the gold medal in London,” Paul Fichtenbaum, Editor of Time Inc.’s Sports Group tells PEOPLE Magazine.
James is not only a star on the court but off the court as well. James created a program for the children in the Akron, Ohio school district, had the highest selling Nike shoe of the year, been involved with some of this year’s biggest ad campaigns and continues to run his clothing boutique UNKNWN.
I’d say he is deserving of the title. Congratulations LeBron James!
