official wants LeBron licence plates


\\\\\ CLEVELAND 



 



 An Ohio lawmaker wants to give the state’s motorists the chance to score a licence plate honouring LeBron James.



State Rep Bill Patmon is planning to introduce legislation to permit the sale of a commemorative “LeBron James Witness 2.0” plate honouring 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.”



James, a four-time NBA most valuable player, was drafted by the Cavaliers in 2003 but left town for Miami after seven seasons. Last month, he announced he would re-sign with Cleveland.



His representatives declined to comment yesterday on the licence plate proposal.
