I’m not surprised that LeBron is the most Googled athlete in the country but I wasn’t expecting him to dominate this map. Basketball players were the highest in 29 states led by LeBron and his 24. Andrew Wiggins (2), Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant were the other basketball players. Peyton Manning was 2nd to LeBron in leading in the most states with 6.
