King James just earned himself some more hardware.

Sports Illustrated announced Wednesday that LeBron James has been named its 2016 Sportsperson of the Year, marking his second time earning the honor. James, who also won in 2010, joins Tiger Woods as the only one two-time winner of the award.

Considering the incredible 2015-2016 season that James and the Cleveland Cavaliers put together, his award is certainly warranted.

James, of course, led the Cavs back from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals to win the franchise’s first NBA title and the city of Cleveland’s first major championship in since 1964.

James averaged 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game in the series and was named NBA Finals MVP.
