BATH TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A crowd gathered outside of LeBron James’ home in Bath Township after “The Decision 2.0.” was made.
James announced Friday that he will be signing with the Cavs. It was announced on social media and in an exclusive interview with Sports Illustrated. A police presence remained there on Friday and ‘no parking’ signs were placed along the road.
As a free agent, James was permitted to sign a contract beginning at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.
There was much speculation over whether he would stay with the Miami Heat or return to Northeast Ohio to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers.
James’ home became such a spectacle starting Thursday that a Twitter handle called @LebronsLawn was created.
The account took on a grouchy tone and urged people to leave.
The description stated, “I’m LeBron’s lawn, and y’all got to get off me.”
Please don’t put tents down. They leave holes in me. I prefer you sleep in your cars or GO HOME.
