As we wind down the final days of 2012 I thought it would be great to review some of the best and worst things to happen to the Baller world in 2012. Let’s move on to our Best Year Evers. These are Ballers and Ballerific Women who have had an exceptional year personally or career wise.
And the winners are…
Jay Z & Beyonce had an awesome year. Between welcoming their first child, Beyonce’s multi-million Pepsi deal, Jay bringing the Nets to Brooklyn and the launch of D’USSE you couldn’t tell these two nothing!
Robert Griffin III has had a great year. After being drafted to the Washington Redskins he instantly became a star. He’s also inked a pretty cool deal with adidas.
Barack Obama proved that these haters can’t hold him back after winning the presidential re-election. It wasn’t easy but we came together as a country and made it happen. History was made 4 years ago and history remains in office.
2012 was the year of 2 Chainz. You couldn’t turn on your radio without hearing a song 2 Chainz was featured on. After getting his stamp of approval from Kanye West and a Grammy nomination, 2 Chainz proved that it’s definitely possible to make a come back.
Lebron James was the King of 2012. He won his first NBA Championship, was named MVP, participated in the Olympics on behalf of Team USA and landed the cover of Sports Illustrated as their Sportsman of the Year. He also proposed to his long time girlfriend. Let’s see what 2013 has in store for King James.
Is there really much that one can say about little Miss Gabby Douglas? At 16 years old she made Olympic history by becoming the first woman of color to become the individual all-around champion, and the first American gymnast to win gold in both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics.
Who are some other honorable mentions?
