LeBron James is the 2016 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year

Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Sportsperson of the Year went to Lebron James.

During the star-studded ceremony inside Barclays Center in New York, James paid tribute to some of the best athletes of all time.

Earlier this year James led the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA Championship. The 31-year-old has won three NBS Championships including two with the Miami Heat.

He is also a four-time NBA Most Valuable Player and has two Olympic gold medals. James joins Tiger Woods as the only athletes to be named twice as the sportsperson of the year.

“This is an unbelievable night in not only sports, but in life. So as i stand up here, as the recipient of the 2016 Sportsman of the Year, this isn’t about me. This is much bigger than me. And I just want to say thank you to everyone that showed up tonight.”

Michael Phelps was named the greatest Olympian of all time on Monday. The 28-time Olympic medal winning swimmer said he has had a great year.

Phelps was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the year in 2008.
