LeBron James added the favorite male sports star award to the previously announced Generation Change Award during this year’s Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.
The virtually produced telecast titled “Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together” was hosted Saturday by Victoria Justice.
The Los Angeles Lakers forward also won the favorite male sports star award in 2013, nine months after leading the Miami Heat to the first of two back-to-back NBA championships.
Nickelodeon announced on April 24 that James would receive the Generation Change Award, honoring his commitment to creating real and lasting change through education.
James’ foundation provides financial assistance to the I Promise School in his hometown, Akron, Ohio, allowing it to hire additional teaching staff to help reduce class sizes and have an additional hour of after-school programming and tutors.
The favorite female sports star winner also has a tie to Southern California — U.S. women’s national soccer team forward Alex Morgan, a graduate of Diamond Bar High School.
