LeBron James Thanks Akron; No Mention of Cleveland

by August 03, 2010

Following in the footsteps of Big Z, LBJ took out an ad in his hometown paper to thank the people of Akron. Cavs fans and residents of Cleveland? Not so much: “Two days after Zydrunas Ilgauskas took out an ad in The Plain Dealer to thank the fans of Cleveland for their support, LeBron James placed a similar ad in the Beacon-Journal in Akron … While James praised his hometown of Akron, he made no mention of Cleveland, where he played at Quicken Loans Arena for seven years as a member of the Cavs.”
