Ohio Politician Wants To Create LeBron James License Plates for Homecoming 2.0

LeBron James returning to Cleveland isn’t just a major win for the Cavs, it’s really a win for the entire state of Ohio. So much so in fact, that one law maker wants to create a limited edition welcome-home-license-plate for LeBron.

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.”

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles offers more than 150 specialty plates, including one that Patmon pushed through the Legislature that honors comic book hero Superman. The Man of Steel was created by two Clevelanders, Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, who grew up in the Glenville neighborhood that Patmon represents.

Can you imagine what the state will attempt if he brings a title to the Cavs? I bet they create a state holiday.
