LeBron James Thanks Cleveland Fans

Cleveland fans received a long awaited thank you from former Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James as he made his first public appearance since signing with the Miami Heat last month.

During James' annual "King for Kids" charity bike-a-thon held in his hometown of Akron, James took the podium and addressed the surprisingly friendly crowd of four hundred.


"To the city of Cleveland, my fans in Cleveland, my fans in northeast Ohio," said James, "I want to say thank you for the last seven years and the years that continue to go in the future."

Just last week James had taken out a full page a full page newspaper ad in the Akron Beacon Journal where he thanked the city of Akron for all its support while simultaneously snubbing Cleveland.
