Knick fans who are counting on LeBron James to join the hapless team after his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers expires next year had better have a Plan B.
The hoops star’s mother, Gloria, told Page Six it’s not happening. “He’s a hometown boy,” she said. LeBron grew up in Akron, Ohio, but his home now is Cleveland.
Again, this isn’t LeBron saying anything one way or the other, and the constant back-and-forth is enough to drive fans crazy. We’ve discussed the Akron-Cleveland thing ad nauseum over the last few months so the fact that Cleveland is actually mentioned as a “home” has to be worth something. I’m not sure how reliable the Gloria James quote is, but if anyone is in the know, I assume it would be her.
