Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been named TIME’s 2020 Athlete of the Year.

James made a significant impact on and off the court this season, leading the Lakers to their 17th NBA championship and launching a nonprofit organisation to help fight voter suppression in the United States.

He won Finals MVP in October after he guided the Lakers past the Miami Heat, 4-2. He earned All-NBA First Team honours for the 13th time in his career and finished second in votes for the 2019-20 regular season Kia MVP award.

James’ nonprofit organisation ‘More Than A Vote’ exemplified his well-documented desire to create change off the floor. The organization partnered with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to help recruit election workers, while also pushing for sports arenas and stadiums to open as safe polling places.
