USA Basketball has named LeBron James the 2012 Male Athlete of the Year. James led the Heat to an NBA Championship and led USA Basketball to a gold medal in the 2012 summer Olympics.

James is only the second player in history to be named MVP, win an NBA Championship and a gold medal in the Olympics in the same year--the other player being Michael Jordan.

“LeBron is very deserving of this award, and USA Basketball is proud to celebrate his performance in 2012, as well as his commitment to playing for his country,” said Jim Tooley, USA Basketball Executive Director/CEO.
James was integral to the USA basketball team, with 45 assists, 106 points and only eight turnovers. USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski called James the central figure and playmaker for the team.
