So of course, someone nominated him for the TIME Person of the year and the voter turn-out for Lebron is pretty terrible.
We get more from Pro Basketball Talk:
Well, that was unexpected. TIME Magazine just released its list of 25 nominees for its annual “Person of the Year” award, and Heat forward and Controversial Person LeBron James is one of them. After “the decision,” the 25-year old James has never been less popular, but he’s also never been more in the news. Since the TIME “Person of the Year” poll is based on “influence,” LeBron’s nomination does make a measure of sense.
Here’s what TIME’s Sean Gregory had to say about James’ nomination:
Yes, The Decision, which followed a year of intense speculation about where James would land, decidedly stunk. But we watched it. And talked about it. And debated whether coddled professional athletes like James owe their hometown fans anything more than years of success, even if falling short of winning a championship. As James teams up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, all eyes are still on LeBron.
Very unsurprisingly, Lebron is currently 24th out of the 25 nominees and currently only above former BP executive Tony Hayward.
So we can deduce from the rules of logic that Lebron James is slightly less evil than Tony Hayward.
