Desperate Clevelanders join voices to beg LeBron James to stay
Just how desperate is the city of Cleveland to keep Cavaliers superstar LeBron James? Apparently very, very desperate.
Dozens of high-profile locals -- politicians (including Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland), entertainers, TV and radio personalities and even Indians mascot Slider and a member of the Browns' Dawg Pound -- joined forces to beg King James to remain among them.
And they did it to the tune of 1985 classic "We Are the World."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has all the behind-the-scenes-details.
It's a great idea and is pretty hilarious ... but it's still only the second-funniest spoof of a charity single begging a star basketball player to stay put.
