Call 2012 the Year of the LeBron.

After finishing up a tour tearing down cities and pillaging towns in the United States and Toronto, LeBron James recently took his talents overseas to London, where he helped lead the USA basketball team to an undefeated mark in the Olympics and, eventually, a gold-medal victory over rival Spain.
