Well for all the LeBron haters who hate the name “King James”might want to look away at this  one. Yesterday it was unveiled that LeBron James is Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year and in the article about LeBron’s amazing 2012 year that included a Gold Medal, a NBA MVP, a Finals MVP, and finally a NBA title.

In some peoples’ eyes he can finally be called “King”, but what about what his GM Pat Riley calls LeBron? B.O.A.T. “Best Of All Time.” Its not clear how LeBron feels about the nick name as of yet, but we know his haters are going to eat this up.

Riley explained, “best of all time, an acronym he conjured to remind the planet’s preeminent player of frontiers still to be conquered.”

Let’s see how long this nick name takes to become a trending topic on Twitter, might be deserving though.
