LeBron James became only the third player in NBA history to win the AP Male Athlete of the Year award. He joins the likes of Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. He expressed his feelings, as all athletes should, via instagram;
Wow! I had no idea how exclusive this award was and especially for a basketball player until I saw the list. I'm so honored and humbled! Really don't know what to say. Umm Thank You to all who voted for me. #StriveForGreatness #SurealThingsKeepHappeningForMe #IReallyDontGetIt
Those hashtags are brutal.
