I don’t think I’ve ever seen an event in sports that has been able to bring out the pathetic in people quite like LeBron James’ free agent status has. LA Clippers fans have already made their pitch for LeBron by holding a parade to try to convince the King to join them. I can’t imagine they persuaded James very much, considering about 75 fans showed up. The latest person to make an ass of himself happens to be a public figure — the mayor of New York City.
That’s right, Mike Bloomberg has actually created a political campaign-style video in an attempt to convince LeBron James to come to the Knicks. These attempts are quickly becoming more and more pathetic and I think this one takes the cake thus far. He’s supposedly even designing an entire campaign entitled “C’mon LeBron.” Check out the video of New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg begging LeBron James to sign with the Knicks, courtesy of The Big Lead via SI Hot Clicks.
