LeBron James Tops Espy Awards Wins with Three Accolades
LeBron James added to his trophy collection by receiving three at the ESPY Awards accolades. This included male athlete of the year.
James also won in the championship performance and NBA player categories, completing a sweep of the three awards he won last year. He shared in the best team award Wednesday night.
"We went through so much adversity," teammate Ray Allen said. "We did everything we could to fight, scratch and claw to put ourselves in that moment."
James beat out Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for male athlete honors.
James mentioned his fellow nominees, then told them, "This is for all four of us, man, but I'm just keeping it at my house."
