Time Magazine Person of the Year is not LeBron James

By Cindy Boren

He didn't found a social networking company or have a big hit movie made about him. Evidently, that's what it takes to be Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

LeBron James fell just a leeeetle bit short. In internet balloting that Time probably pretty much ignored, James was one of 25 candidates and the only sports person (unless you count the Chilean miners because one of them finished the New York City Marathon). For a while, only BP's Tony Hayward was behind James in voting. But King James rallied to finish 22nd, ahead of author Jonathan Franzen, Hayward and Hamid Karzai. So he's got that going for him.

Mark Zuckerberg, who actually was named the winner, managed to finish only 10th in internet balloting.
