If you’ve been following the NBA playoffs, you’re well aware that the Cleavland Cavaliers lost to the Boston Celtics last week and basketball fans attention has turned to one very important fact—the Cavs LeBron James becomes a free agent in July. So where will if move, if at all? It seems like everyone has an opinion.
ESPN says you can count President Obama as another Chicago Bulls fan rooting for James to move to Chicago. Senior Adviser David Axelrod told the Bulls blog, "He doesn't want to tamper. But as a Chicago fan, the president thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform."
But in New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is spearheading a Draft LeBron movement. Mayor Bloomberg said on Friday that he should move to the Knicks and to NYC in order to get the chance to play on "the world's greatest stage." "I think it would be great for New York if he would come here," Bloomberg said. "If he calls me and asks what's it like to live in New York, I'll give him a big sales pitch for New York."
But in Ohio, Cleavlanders are pleading for the basketball phenom to stay—including Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and Sen. Sherrod Brown. The two lawmakers recently joined other Cavs fans to beg James to remain a Cavalier with this song remix, "Please Stay LeBron."
