    Sport's Illustrated' Sportsman of the Year: LeBron James!

    the cover photo looks pretty good, check out the story on ESPN or SI's website:

    James won essentially all he could win in 2012: He became an NBA champion for the first time, won the NBA Finals MVP trophy, helped the U.S. win Olympic gold for the second time and picked up his third NBA MVP award.

"Hey, Boat," Riley will say. "How is the Boat doing today?" James will reflexively laugh and shake his head because he is not the Boat, at least not yet. But on that sweaty night at the Garden, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, facing yet another summer cast as the villain foiled, he delivered one of the Boat performances in NBA history. The image of James throughout the game, bent at the waist, staring skyward with pupils pushed to his eyelids, recalled predators of different breeds. "He was primal," Riley says. "He was a cobra, a leopard, a tiger hunched over his kill."

    The nominees were Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Gabby Douglas, Missy Franklin, Miguel Cabrera, and of course Roger Frederer.

    pretty impressive list.

    Coach K(GOAT coach) on King James:


    "The game is a house, and some players only have one or two windows in their house because they can't absorb any more light," says Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of Team USA.
    "When I met LeBron, he only had a few windows, but then he learned how beautiful the game can be, so he put more windows in.
    Now he sees the damn game so well, it's like he lives in a glass building. He has entered a state of mastery. There's nothing he can't do.
    God gave him a lot but he is using everything. He's one of the unique sports figures of all time, really, and he's right in that area where it's all come together."
    A voracious mind has caught up with a supreme body. The marriage is a marvel.

    I wouldn't have gone with James.

    James was great last year but it was only his First championship.

    Usain Bolt was DOMINANT for his SECOND Olympics in a row.

    World records in the 100 AND 200M.

    6 Olympic gold medals.
    6 World Championship gold medals.

    Usain Bolt is quite simply, the fastest sprinter that has EVER Lived, and nobody even knows if he'll be around to compete in another Olympics.

    Bolt deserved it this year as not only has he been more dominant, but because this may be the last time we get to see him going for Olympic Gold.

    And if they didn't want to give it to Bolt, it probably should have gone to Phelps. Most gold medals, Ever.

    Nuff said.

    hmm the award is for the years accomplishments not career.
    so based off of the list, imo it would have been between lebron or miguel cabrera.

    Agreed. Not that LeBron was an undeserving person to win it, I just think that the Olympics only come around once every 4 years and so it's not like these Olympians have a lot of opportunities to win this award, and to do something like what Bolt did or Phelps was incredible, yet they aren't one of the "major" sports so ESPN apparently doesn't care...

    Uh... 3 gold medals at the Olympics, including setting the World Record in the 400M and the Olympic Record in the 100M.

    ONLY man in HISTORY to successfully defend the 100M AND 200M gold medals.

    7th straight Title in the 100M AND 200M.

    All done this year.
