One of the most prestigious awards left in sports is Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year. SI made the announcement on CNN this morning. Although the entire magazine industry has been facing a downward trend, the award still means something tangible to honor the most influential, memorable athlete in the past year. For 2012, the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year is LeBron James.
The choice of LeBron is no surprise after winning his first NBA title for the Miami Heat in June. He also added NBA MVP, NBA Finals MVP, and a Gold Medal to that tally. But, it's that elusive championship ring that finally led LeBron James to the mountaintop of not just his sport, but the sports world as a whole. For all the anger still directed at James for the way he left Cleveland, and for all the psychoanalysis of every inch of his character and every tweet sent, James is beginning to win back some fans with his continued otherworldly play on the court.

Sports Illustrated announced on CNN on Monday morning that James has been named the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year.

Regular season MVP, NBA Championship, Finals MVP, Gold Medal…LeBron James was named Sports Illustrated’s 2012 Sportsman of the Year. ”I’m very appreciative of it, and my family is very excited about it, I’m happy that I’m able to represent my family and my kids and everyone in the Heat organization in the highest standard” said James after practice.
When LeBron James learned he was Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year, the Miami Heat star was surprised.
Not because he thought his achievements in 2012 weren't worthy, but because he figured what happened in 2010 was still holding him back.
Apparently, that's no longer the case. The magazine announced its annual choice Monday, with James becoming the first NBA...

The Washington Wizards can't beat many teams, but they beat the best: LeBron James and the Miami Heat.
Perhaps inspired by the courtside presence of Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Wizards doubled their victory total this season with a 105-101 win over the Heat on Tuesday night, despite James' triple-double of 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.
Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 34 points, LeBron James added 21 points and the Miami Heat rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-89 on Saturday night.
Ray Allen scored 13 and Norris Cole finished with 12 for the Heat, who won their sixth straight and remained atop the Eastern Conference. Miami held the Nets to 30 points in the second half.
WASHINGTON -- The teacher hopes the lesson has been learned.
But as far as the star pupils are concerned, what lesson?
The Miami Heat spent the latter part of last month flirting with danger against lesser NBA foes. They needed Houdini-like escapes at home to beat so-so Milwaukee, lowly Cleveland and San Antonio's Double-A team, one not featuring sent-home stars Tim Duncan...
