LOS ANGELES — Not many have had a year quite like LeBron James.

In recognition of what the 35-year-old has achieved both on and off the court, the Los Angeles Lakers star has been named TIME magazine’s Athlete of the Year.

James led the Lakers to a record-equalling 17th championship title in October during a season unlike any other, with the majority of the campaign being held in an NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It was James’ fourth NBA title and fourth Finals MVP award. He is the first player in NBA history to win the accolade with three different teams. Only Michael Jordan has won the Finals MVP award more times.
