Tell The Knicks, Akron Just Pwnd You!
So they held "Lebron Appreciation Day" in Akron this weekend. And the King himself, showed up to say thanks.
Late by over an hour, which for a modern pro athlete is basically "on-time", The King reminded people of all the "great things" he's done so far in his career (what?) and promised to keep doing great things "for" the city that he says is "home."
The fact that many fans in attendance actually said delusional crap like this - "There's no way he can leave," Ken Metz, a 19-year-old from Parma, Ohio, said as he surveyed the crowd. "It's all here for him. He built his empire here."
Yeah, well that "empire" is going to play for the Knicks next year. Book it. It's about as predictable as a Three's Company plotline. (What, Jack's Tripper's NOT gay! Shhhhh! Don't tell Mr. Roper!)
But my favorite part of LeBron Day, is the somewhat professional looking website, which apparently GAVE THE WEBMASTER THE DAY OFF right after the event!
I mean, come on! You can't post photos of LeBron showing up late, bragging about his non-accomplishments a full 24 hours after it happens?
"Come back later?"
Get bent, LebronDay.com organizers! This story has a shelf-life shorter than a can of tuna on the back
