MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James is the only athlete named on Fortune's list of this year's "40 Under 40" stars in the business world.
The Miami Heat forward and two-time reigning NBA MVP was ranked No. 20 on the list, which took into account both his earning power on and off the floor (an estimated $42.4 million this year) and the attention he generated during the free agency process this summer.
James was not on the inaugural version of the list last year. James is also the youngest person on the list; at 25, he's one year younger than Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who held the No. 2 spot in the rankings.
Web browser pioneer Marc Andreessen was atop the rankings.
Tiger Woods, who ranked No. 6 a year ago, fell out of this year's rankings entirely.
