Per the AP, an Ohio politician is proposing the state sell a LeBron James-themed vanity license plate to commemorate the star's return to Cleveland. James signed a two-year contract with the Cavaliers last month, one that allows him to be a free agent as soon as next June.

From the AP:

State Rep. Bill Patmon is planning to introduce legislation to permit the sale of a commemorative "LeBron James Witness 2.0" plate honoring the Akron native's decision return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"When LeBron came home, it was a big deal for us," said the Democrat from Cleveland. "It might not be for the rest of the world, but it's a big deal for Cleveland."


LeBron would be the first real person, living or dead, to be honored by a vanity plate in Ohio. He's probably never going to leave again, but a city that has already experienced washing away LeBron's messianic image with its collected tears should maybe exercise a bit more caution in this situation. Still, this will be good news for the many Cavs fans who have been eagerly awaiting some new LeBron memorabilia to get their hands on.
