Doesn't mean hes the greatest person of the year, Just someone who "has done the most to influence the events of the year,". Shows you how big sports is, when an athlete could claim this title.

Makes sense to me.

The title is "person of the year" that's not saying good/bad/indifferent. As stated above me, who has been talked about more this year? The only person I can think of is Barack Obama.

Im a huge Lebron hater. But I would rather see him win it than Sarah Palin. Here's hoping it goes to Jon Stewart.

They call it "Person of the Year" cuz "Most Controversial Person of the Year" sounds too long :D

I think it is him. The title mislead me but it is about the most talked about Person and everyone was talking about Lebron this year.

Super.

Id rather have Jon Stewart, but I can totally see LeBron getting it, because it's just about the person who was talked about the most, good or bad. Hate or Love.

Mostly hate

LeBron's honored to be on a list that includes:
Hitler
Stalin
Khomeini
Gandhi
Pope John Paul II
Obama
Bernanke
And Osama who probably would have won if there wouldn't have been all the backlash.

Woods easily, at least world wide anyhow.

Lebron gets 0 coverage in Australia, most people never heard of him.

sure its not douche of the year?

he's controversial, so it will sell copies and will get readers/viewers.

no surprise, but it would be awesome if publications, media and websites didn't make it so obvious.
