Time Magazine has named Lebron James as their 2020 Athlete of the Year! I mean was there a better choice?
Lebron James was considered what many believed as the obvious choice due to his accomplishments both on and off the court. When making their decision one Time representative said it was a “no brainer” when who should get the accolade this year.
Time’s decision was met with support from athletes and celebs alike. Many of them congratulated both Lebron on the accomplishment and praised Time for the decision.
2020 had not been an easy year for anyone, but Lebron no matter what has stood up and made the best out of it. Whether it was on the court where he won not only his fourth title and Finals MVP but bought the Lakers their record-tying 17th franchise championship.
Or off the court, where Lebron was a front-line voice and leader in raising awareness and calling for justice in regards to social injustice, and making sure ppl exercised their right to vote.
2020 has been one to remember for the King and if you watched the Finals then you know all Lebron wants is his respect, and I think this accomplishment shows that what ‘The King wants, The King gets!’
