LeBron James wins the Sportsman of the Year award.
Sports Illustrated named their Sportsman of the Year winner today and it is LeBron James.

As I think about all the other sports figures that have made news this past year, I start to think about them and wonder if they were more qualified to win this award than James. And the more I think about it, the more I realized that I couldn’t come up with a strong argument for anyone else.
So with James, I content with him winning it.
