Ohio lawmaker proposes LeBron license plate

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio lawmaker wants to create a specialty license plate celebrating the homecoming of LeBron James. State Rep. Rep. Bill Patmon says he plans to introduce legislation within the next two weeks for the "LeBron James Witness 2.0" tag. James, an Akron native, announced on July 11 that he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, four years after breaking the city's collective heart by jumping to the Miami Heat. In a letter to legislative colleagues, Patmon said the plate would "honor the return home of our prodigal champion." The Cleveland Democrat said the plate would commemorate the NBA star's contributions to the economy of Ohio and to its children and families through his charity, the LeBron James Family Foundation. Ohio already has more than 70 specialty plates.
