Not only did James win the NBA championship with his Cleveland Cavaliers, but the athlete also donated $2.5 million to the Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. On top of that, the ball player also announced he'll be an executive producer on an HBO documentary about Ali, and has spoken out about gun violence on multiple occasions.
Though we LOVED last year's pick of Serena Williams, the Cavs star's selection is pretty special too because it's the second time he's been honored with the award. Tiger Woods is the only other person to ever have won the award twice!
Rapper Jay Z presented the All Star athlete with the award as LeBron began his speech saying:
Well, that's a surprise!
Even though Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes in the world, all we really want to know is who she's hooking up with! Thankfully we've got Ellen DeGeneres on our side!
The tennis star stopped by Ellen on Friday to chat it up, and like us the comedienne wanted all the deets on who Serena was crushing on — so they played Who'd You Rather?

During the game, several HOTT celebs popped up including Zac Efron, Justin Bieber, Idris Elba, and Michael B. Jordan — but you might be shocked who the 35-year-old picked! And no, unfortunately Common wasn't an option, so we didn't get any confirmation on a reconciliation. Whomp!
Aside from DeGeneres' classic game, Serena also sat down with the Finding Dory star to talk about her life from appearing in Beyoncé's Lemonade to her EPIC tennis wins!

Over the weekend, Serena Williams and Common — who had an intense two-year relationship that ended in 2010 — sparked reconciliation rumors as they both attended a charity event honoring Williams' late sister in Compton on Friday night.
An eyewitness tells TMZ the tennis player and the rapper were spotted chatting backstage at the grand opening of the Yetunde Price Resource Center before Serena took the stage alongside her sister, Venus.

This is a cause near and dear to the athletes' hearts as their sister, Yetunde Price, was murdered in a 2013 drive-by shooting. The center is set to open next month and will help those from the community affected by violence and trauma.
Although the exes left in separate cars and avoided taking photos together, the witness seemed to think something more serious was going on.
But alas, an insider insists the celebs are just friends. Borrrring. LOLz!
