James, who is in London for the Olympics, has plenty to smile about.

LeBron bested tennis great Novak Djokovic, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for top male athlete.

He also shared in the best team award with the Heat.

Baylor basketball star Brittney Griner won female athlete of the year, topping Maria Sharapova, skier Lindsay Vonn and soccer player Abby Wambach.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III, who like Griner starred at Baylor, won male college athlete honors. Griner took female college athlete honors as well.

Los Angeles was well represented, with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick winning best NHL player after helping the franchise win its first Stanley Cup title.

The Kings won for best upset after their Stanley Cup run.

Galaxy star David Beckham earned best MLS player honors, perhaps because he is the only MLS player ESPN knows exists. Either way, congrats!

The Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton won best MLB player, while Rodgers earned best NFL player honors. Shaun White won male action sports athlete.
