Well, to tell you the truth, this shouldn't be much of surprise. Love him or hate him, LeBron James ascended to the top of the basketball world this year with his amazing playoff performance, first championship and leadership of the Olympic team's gold medal run. LeBron joins past winners like Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Dwyane Wade and Drew Brees.
